    I know people say maths is almost needed for physics but how important is it for chemistry? I ask this because I’m considering dropping maths because I find it too hard and I don’t think I could even get a C in in. So should I be fine in chemistry without maths?

    For Chemistry A-Level I don’t think it’ll be as beneficial as having it for Physics. Then again you don’t need Maths for Physics (unless you want to do Physics, engineering etc. at uni) but it is very helpful

    Chemistry without maths should be fine, as long as you can rearrange equations, convert units, and use logs and exponentials. Although some people tend to struggle without maths, it shouldn’t be a big problem.😁
