    honestly the math is not that bad in physics a good understanding of GCSE maths will be enough for the first year as it's just a lot of rearranging equations

    All the maths in Physics is GCSE level. Our teacher often tells us that the hardest part of physics is forming the right equations and expressions. After that, solving them is very easy. I would recommend you go with the one you enjoy more though.

    I take Psychology, it is a very interesting subject to do and I really recommend it, there is a lot to remember and understand, but if you are good at revising your material as you go along through the year, you should be fine. Also, the essays are not too diffult to do, you couldwrite very simple points and you will still get marks, if you practise and use a clear structure such as PEEL which you might be familiar with you wont have a problem with the essays. I don't take Physics, but if you think you will do good at it and will enjoy then you should take it. If you think there's a lot of maths in it then I recommend you try practising using equations that are required at a level, so that you get familiar with it and wont find it difficult when you first start the course!
