Going into S6 and Considering giving Higher Physics a go (or atleast in June) as it seems like an interesting course and have always wanted to give Physics a go. My Maths is not particularly strong as I’m doing Nat 5 and think I may have failed the exam. If so I will think I may have failed the exam. If so I will obviously be resting next year. Will it be a real struggle doing Higher Physics when Maths isn’t very strong ? If I did physics would probably revise the Nat 5 stuff through summer and maybe briefly touch on the Higher stuff. Also I will be working very hard in Maths next year fairy confident it should be fine resting that (Also I did and will maybe be resitting Higher Chemistry next year if that does not go to good) Would be aiming for a C in Physics if I did it. Advice on this would be good.

Higher physics never goes beyond nat5 maths. I speak from experience. I did national 5 maths in 4th year and didn't do higher maths in 5th year but did Higher Physics in 5th year. I didn't find not doing higher maths to be limiting in any way in physics.

In higher physics you primarily rearrange equations and plugging in variables. There might be a tiny bit of vectors as well but the rest is KU. Most of what you do in physics is just rearranging equations to find a variable and KU.

There's no logs or drawing quadratics/cubics etc in higher physics anyway. Just remember that the highers are changing this year so things could change.
