    I'm currently doing chem and bio but am thinking about switching bio to physics. At gCse i found physics lessons boring (got an a*) but i dont know if this was simply the teacher because when i read about astronomy i really like it. Im just worried i wont enjoy it at a level. Any advice?

    If you like Physics then take it! In terms of astronomy there isn't any for AS (for Edexcel at least) but there is some at A2, if you can wait till then

    I was the same. Bad teacher, boring content at GCSE. A-level is somewhat better.

    Its up to you. I did Alevel Physics at As and A2, if you dont take maths you might struggle later on.

    Yep if you think you might want to do astronomy later then maths and physics now... though the amount of astronomy in it's own right taught in A level physics is pretty small most iirc of A level physics is important for one area of astronomy or another eventually - which might help you stay motivated when gas laws are battering your motivation.

    Anybody got a copy of AQA multiple choice paper? Would be useful to look over before I return. Much appreciated.
