    Currently thinking of taking Maths, Physics, History and Econ. Is maths at a-level really hard because all the teachers are saying so? and is physics hard or okay, I'm currently predicted A in maths (IGCSE) but i reckon i could get this higher.

    Are these a good set of choices?
    Need to pick by tom so swift reply would be appreciated

    Hi,

    I think they are good choices that both compliment and contrast each other really well. I do maths and physics and I would say that the step up from GCSE is significant but is realistic (from an A grade at GCSE) if you are able to work hard and put the time in to practice independently. Core 1 maths builds on the A* stuff at GCSE and then it gets harder. If you do mechanics in maths, it then compliments some of the mechanics in physics and doing both helps to develop your maths/problem solving skills. Have you any idea about what you'd like to do in the future?

    Your set of choices are good. Don't worry what other people say about your courses. If you enjoy them, then choose them.
