I am struggling for my subject choices for S6. I am definitely doing AH maths but am struggling for my other subjects. I want to do 3AHs and have done well in prelims so should be able to take what I want. I would just like some info and opinions on the courses and levels of: AH Stats, AH Physics, AH German, AH RMPS. What is the jump like from S5? How hard are the courses? Is it a good subject to take? etc... I’m thinking about a career in something financey or mathsy so would just like some help. Cheers! 👍🏻
I did AH stats and loved it. It was very different from normal maths and like nothing I'd ever done before.
It engaged my brain in a different way to normal maths and I preferred it as I could see how it was applicable to life versus pure maths
I'm currently doing AH physics. I was worried that it would be too confusing initially, but so far its a great and interesting course. If your interested at all in physics definitely take it. It's a really smooth transition from higher, especially if youve done higher maths/physics, which can make parts of the course an absolute breeze (rotational motion is almost the exact same as linear, basic calculus, graphs of waves etc) I wouldn't say that the rest of the content isn't that much more difficult to understand than higher, However, things like astrophysics do go quite a bit more in depth (along with more stuff as its an AH) .Ive also yet to experience the electromagnetism unit which could be brutal lol. The project ( worth about 25%) requires a lot of hard work and is a main component to the advanced level of the course. Just about to start mine on moment of inertia/ gravitaional constant/ forces on a trampoline gymnast, hopefully its not too stressful 👍🏼👍🏼 (im also doing AH maths which a lot of people- including myself- find muuch more difficult in comparison)
