I am currently doing A2 physics, chemistry, biology and maths. I liked my subjects at AS-level. I was doing really well in all of the physics papers, however, at the end of AS i ended up with ABCC. The two C grades are in maths and physics. I am not going to lie, i did find C2 maths very difficult and it really brought me down. I am considering dropping maths, i really like physics and would like to use the extra time in studying for a repeat of an AS1 physics. However, i read suggestions that you A2 physics is impossible without A2 maths. I really like physics, my tracher is very good at explaining as well. I am hoping to do Medicinal Chemistry at university.
A bad 4th subject situation, suggestions? Watch

Your situation is very similar to mine, I'm a year ahead of you though. I did the same subjects and got ABCC at AS, C's in maths and physics, although I dropped physics.
I know that A2 physics is absolutely not "impossible" without A2 maths. That's just plain ridiculous . Think of it like this, if physics is impossible without maths, then surely maths is harder than physics. I got an A in maths, so I probably could have got an A in physics too.
Edit: I'm pretty sure you don't need to be able to do differential equations, trigonometric integration, partial fractions and all that other stuff in A2 maths for A2 physics. I just looked through some past papers and found only very basic maths. Just rearranging, multiplying, dividing, that kind of thing.Last edited by username2183021; 21-09-2016 at 21:42.
