    Hello, i'm in a situation here.
    I have to pick my options for 6th form, and decide what i want to do.
    The options i cant decide is between Physics and Business Studies.
    I haven't done a GCSE in business, but think it would be quite fun.

    Any sort of review of these courses and which you would prefer is highly appreciated.
    Thank You very much!

    I do A level physics (AQA) and it's a pretty good course

    I've been enjoying it, there's a decent amount of maths ( 40% of the marks have to be on maths now) and it's not too difficult if you're doing maths a level alongside it. In terms of the content you can look at the specification for more information online but there's things like particle physics, electronics, waves, mechanics, fields and a few other topics too. I'd recommend physics A level since it's interesting to me

    A level is a bit more work than GCSE but is more interesting so it's worth it imo.

    A Level Business, specifically AQA, involved remembering a lot of models of business/marketing techniques. There's a heavy focus on objectives in AS (which is what I'm doing now). The lessons can drag and be repetitive.

    My boyfriend does A Level Physics and said it is majoritively maths, of course, and he is enjoying the course. It's intensive.
