    I want to go to Cardiff university in a few years and it recommends that for the optics degree (optometry) that I require three A-Levels from Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. I'm definitely picking maths and biology but I can't decide between chemistry and physics. In my first exams, I had an A in biology, an A in chemistry and an A* in physics (I'm getting the results for P2, B2 and C2 next month) I also had an A in maths and an A in numeracy. I'm not sure whether I want to pick physics over chemistry since I feel like I didn't perform as well as I could've in C2 whereas I believe I did better in my physics. I'm struggling at the moment with physics because of one of the topics (electromagnetism) but I feel that chemistry would still be harder. Which out of physics or chemistry is harder and which is the best option for the optometry degree?
