    So i started a new school, (Y12) and i have decided to take Maths, Biology, Chemistry and History.
    However it turns out Maths is divided into further maths, mechanics, and statistics.
    But everyone in my Mechanics class seems to be doing Physics. So i was wondering if i should change my options and perhaps swap out Biology or something.
    I didnt do statistics for GCSE because it didnt look fun, and i cant take Furthermaths because i didnt get A* in Furthermaths, and normal GCSE was one of my strongest subjects.
    Also i deliberately did not choose Physics, because i heard it was the hardest AS/
    Alevel, and my 6th form Physics department is "weak"

    So... i was wondering if my options right now was a viable option, i honestly havent either considered what i want to do, and just picked subjects that interest me. If possible could someone list a few further options for my career path??
    Thank you to whoever helps...

    So, if you're on AS level maths with C1, C2, and M1, don't be worried about taking Physics. I've found that, on OCR MEI at least, that whilst there is some strong resemblances between the mechanics in Physics and M1, their methods are mostly different. As a matter of fact, my M1 helped my Physics instead of the other way around.

    You shouldn't worry. M1 is a hard module, yes, but once you have the knack for it, then you'll be alright.
