Compare Edexcel chemistry with physics, which one is more difficult? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Though I got both A*for these two subjects at GCSEs, I feel I'm not very capable answering physics questions(I don't really have the mind for that), but it gives me a wider major option. I want to choose finance/economics/math and statistics or material science/engineering(as a backup) for my major, and I'm definitely choosing economics, math and further math in A-level. It is troubling for me to decide whether to choose physics or chemistry. Which of these do you guys feel more difficult? They say that the physics exam is really difficult because some of the knowledge have not been taught in the books, is that true? Do you guys have any advice for me in terms of studying and revising for these subjects? Thank you so much!

    you need physics for engineering.
