    Physics is much harder in my opinion. I think if your good at maths you could choose Physics as you can solve most problems with the application of maths. Whereas Chemistry has more to do with memorisation and explaining concept.

    I haven't done A levels yet, so I can't tell what they're like, but I talked to some teachers and if you do Maths at A level, you do a Mechanics module which is also in the Physics syllabus, so they go well together.

    Yeah just to let you know my friend did maths and further maths at AS level and she got A in maths and B in further maths so her maths skills are pretty good and now she is doing Physics as well and said she finds Physics the hardest out of the 3.
