    hi. my school only lets me switch geog and french to maths and physics in january.
    at first i gave up on trying to switch but i've decided that i'm gonna do it.
    the maths class has already learnt C1&C2 and M1. idk about physics. how can i quickly catch up with everyone in time for january? did any of you switch very last minute as well? what do you recommend?

    I started off doing my subjects of Math and Physics, which i kinda felt a bit stressful to be honest, (i'm easily over loaded ). I would find a text book or two on the right exam board for physics and ask a teacher what has been/ is going to be covered soon, that way you wont drop too deep in the content. For maths I would do the same, getting some diagrams and explanations to help you understand things and a few practice questions for each topic. (Don't worry about being brilliant, you can ask for help too! They will revise the topic at a later date anyway), Finally spend some time to settle with the transition, casually increase the maths and physics you're used to so it isn't as overwhelming as I took it to be.
