    was same position as you, I applied this Oct. to Cambridge (BMAT went horrendous unfortunately- only started preparing for it the weekend before)

    I'm doing physics because I genuinely enjoy it- particularly the theoretical part of quantum physics heheh (geddit? It's funny because pretty much all of quantum physics is theoretical)

    BUT I'm lately getting a vibe from TSR and UK colleges (and even in most other professions) that maths is preferred- even though from what I've heard, it's quite easy

    I love physics and would definitely recommend it- but as I haven't taken maths I can't advise you on it; but I feel maybe that you might have a better chance with maths

    Doesn’t matter. Really really doesn’t. Both are strong, and the other 2 are the main 2 that are needed.

    Whichever you prefer, and do better in.

    Maths/Chem/Bio is I believe is a more standard combination. And given Physics is harder without maths, I’d recommend you do Maths.

    It probably doesn't overly matter, but bio chem maths is a more standard combination, so I'd go with that.

    I have done all 4 to A2 standards (over 3 years) and can honestly say that it is your preference. As I liked plugging in numbers without much thinking (and because it came to me more naturally), I preferred maths. Physics was much more interesting however, so I don't regret doing it.
