Just wondering if there is anyone else as crazy as me who is doing/has done all three sciences at a level...?

most people are crazy enough to do maths as well, you will struggle in physics massively without it

ikr. besides, its hard to choose all three to do at uni, so i'd suggest, unless you are really good at the sciences, you do two sciences instead. idk?

I’m not doing all three at uni, I’ll just do biology. Just three for a level.

If you already know you want to study biology at university, I would drop Physics.

So far I haven’t been finding physics too bad. A little difficult but really interesting as well.

But I need three a levels. And since I want to go into medicine, medical physics could be another option for me and it’s part of the a level physics course.

Of course you need three A levels. Biology is not the same as medicine so be sure you know what you want to study. BTW, I didn't say to not pickanother A level.

Look at universities that offer medicine, look at their requirements but most importantly, their curriculum. You should be able to see whether medical physics is actually part of medicine the way you think it is.

I'll let other meds students take over from here.

I appreciate all of you trying to give advice but I didn’t come here to be told to drop physics because I’m not doing that. I just came here wondering if anyone did the same a levels as me.

Dont you have to do core maths? since in our college, since math is so important for physics you have to do extra lessons. It's going to be really hard. mainly in 2nd year without that math knowledge and experience. You have to learn radians and other math related stuff.

I did Bio Chem Physics and Maths at AS Level. I can assure you physics gets much much more difficult as your progress, and without maths I wouldn’t have done as well. I dropped it after AS.

No, I just had to get grade 6 (B) or above at GCSE maths to do it and I got a 7 (A)
There are quite a few people in my class who are doing physics but not maths so I’m not the only one

Ye same here(alot dont do maths with physics), But if you're college doesnt give you extra lessons. Its gunna be tough. You will have to try very hard, but eh. I dont really see the point of doing 3 sciences. But whatever suits you. Hope you do well

I’m not in collage, I’m in sixth form. I chose to do three sciences because I love science and I just felt that physics would be easier than maths (I know some will disagree but that’s my opinion) And thank you, I will try my best

Yes ofc sixth form, i dont think college even does physics. I just call sixth form college for some reason lul. I picked maths physics and history. Why i picked history...i have no idea...got an 8 in maths and the 1st year was a fly by. But history was boring af. Was about to drop it for further maths and fast track it. Meaning do a 2 year course in 1. However, my college just changed specs and so couldn't do the fast track. And that was lucky for me. I got a new history teacher and i remembered why i picked history in the 1st place. I just needed that spark. What grades are you lookign for?
