My son is taking English, Maths, Geography, Modern studies and chemistry in 4th year. He has to pick another subject but not sure which one. He finds Physics hard but thinks he might need it to have a variety as still doesn't know what he wants to do later. He likes Science engineering and did better in the last test. Im not sure what to advise

The first question here would probably be whether there is another subject in that column that he would prefer to take?
If he's considering engineering as a career, physics is a really important subject to have, and is generally a required subject for engineering courses. With or without physics, he'd still have a good range of options open to him, and remember that subjects can always be picked back up as crash highers, usually in 6th year, if he changes his mind. Physics is one that definitely comes with practice, using mainly questions, and past papers in particular, so if he goes for it, it's definitely something he can improve on if he works at it.

my sons other choices are physics, engineering science or P.E as they were only allowed to take 8 subjects in 3rd year and drop to 6 subjects in 4th year
