Pure maths is needed in being able to apply maths. Not doing maths also limits your destinations to places that actually offer foundation degrees with physics.
It's an extra £9250 if you take a foundation year compared to just taking maths A-level.

You don't really need maths to understand physics at A levels but I'm sure that many universities will require A level maths. More ever, the mechanics units in maths are basically a free pass after doing physics.

uni offer things called a foundation year when you are allowed to d the course which is physics but you do like 6 months where you learn the maths qualification for the degree then you are allowed to carry on with the ohysics ourse at uni
