    A-level physics is in a different league from GCSE. At A-level the most important thing is that you're competent in mathematics (A-level maths) and that you can remember processes and definitions.

    You can always take the subject and swap in the first few weeks?

    Got a C in GCSE and got an A in A-Level for chemistry, if you feel confident with the subject go for it

    If you love it, go for it, but its real difficult this year. I got an A* for all my physics in GCSE and found it the most difficult at AS (got a B) (altho my teachers were rubbish) ... I would take something easier like psychology

    I'm sure you've already been told but try and take mechanics as your applied module because m1 covers a lot of unit2 physics mechanics (on the AQA spec)
