I know these kind of threads are annoying ahaha, but does anyone here take physics, maths and chemistry together for a level?
Is the workload a lot and is it really hard because so many people told me I won’t be able to cope since the subjects are so similar and hard.
Idk, what’s your opinion on these three subjects and how are you finding them?

I don't do that exact combination, however, in my Further Maths class there's a lot who do Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry and they seem to be coping fine, even though the subjects are similar.

I started off taking these 3 (and further maths and another), and I didn't find the workload to be an issue. I am now the only person in my maths set who doesn't do physics, and it actually seems like it helps them out a lot with the mechanics side of the course, as there is so much overlap. They are quite tricky A levels in themselves, but if you are finding them relatively easy at GCSE and can grasp the concepts in physics and chemistry well, there shouldn't be an issue.

It is a very common combination of subjects - this would not be the case if it was impossible to do well taking the three of them at the same time.

I took Mathematics, Economics, Physics, Chemistry and Further Mathematics in Y12. I dropped the Chemistry at the end of the year because I only wanted to do 4 this year. Personally I'd say the workload isn't too much, especially given you're only doing 3 subjects. As someone said if you do Mathematics, it'll help your Physics so much. Chemistry is just more about learning the basics and then focusing on the application, something which isn't too hard to be honest. I'd definitely take all 3 because it's a fairly strong subject combination and I would personally say it's not the hardest thing.
Hope this helps.
