    I have sixth form interview in a few days where we will discuss which courses I would like to take but idk what my third option should be

    I'm definitely taking Bio and Chem but should my third option be physics?
    I heard it's hard if you don't take maths but others have said it's not..

    The requirement at my school to take Physics is:
    Grade 7 maths, grade 6 English and grade 6 for either Bio or Chem

    the only EXCEPTION is if you plant to take all three sciences where the requirements are 6 in bio and chem, 6 for maths and 6 for english

    Soo does that mean physics won't be hard if you don't take maths?

    Personally I’d steer clear. Very academic ‘difficult’ subjects there and you need a break in order to be efficient. Physics is the hardest out there.

    If you need physics for what you want to do at uni then I would take it, however, if you do not know what you would like to do at uni or you are not 100% dedicated or don't enjoy the subject particularly then I would advise you don't take it.
