So next year it is looking like I will need to study Physics.

I will have completed Maths and Further Maths this exam cycle and will have learned if I stick to my plan M3 M4 and M5 before Results day.

I am wondering if Physics in one year to try and get the A* grade would be realistic assuming I am A* standard at the maths?

would M1-M5 give me an advantage in Physics? if so how much overlap or advantage would there be?

eg would I have a significant advantage or only a minor one?

is learning Physics to A* standard in one year, assuming your in full time education (I am not but I have proven I can dedicate full time working hours to self study)
realistic? I would have to learn 4- 5 modules of Maths which will mean basically with Physics, 1 and two thirds of an A level.

The Issue is next year the Maths Exams I will have left are all the hardest modules according to most people so it may take more time.

Plus prep for entrance exams such as MAT and STEP.
Prep for interviews.

would I struggle or is this doable?

Sorry for the late reply.

Studying mechanics on maths provides a huge advantage since you are already covering some of the topic areas, and I would say that everything in mechanics on maths, is in the physics.

The mechanics on maths is more mathematical than the mechanics in physics, but that should also help when it comes to calculations.

As for your other questions, this is entirely doable.
