    Don't worry about being the only girl. It will feel even more satisfying when you beat all the boys.

    I finished my A-levels 3 years ago and I really enjoyed physics. I think if you are good at maths and physics at GCSE they you should definitely go for it.

    Don't worry about being the only girl. In year 13 I was the only girl left and it is not that bad when you do well.

    Definitely go for it - don't let your gender hold you back! I've been the only girl in A level physics since year 12 and it's not something that bothers me.

    I just started AS level Physics and i'm the only girl in the class, and the satisfaction of beating every single one of the boys in a test is amazing! Don't decide against it just because you would be the only girl. If you want to study the subject and think you would be capable then go for it
