its good, but depends on what you like. theres alot of maths, some of which goes to further maths level.

10/10 love it. So much so that I decided to study it in uni.

Further maths can help but it's doable even without it. Doing regular maths is a massive plus so take maths too if you pick physics.
subjectwise, I think it is the most interesting one out of all - there are a lot of super cool experiments and the syllabus contains fun stuff but I think it all comes down to the school physics department teachers and all that crap. Just do it if you like maths and are a practical person.

further mechanics crosses over with further mechanics in further maths

oh yeah its completely doable without it, my point was that some of the maths does get reasonably hard. mechanics in maths is pretty much the same so it saves so much revision time.

there is, you study circular motion, momentum and equilibrim which is in further maths mechanics

Further mechanics is a different subject?

oh right, I never knew. tbh, circular motion and momentum is pretty easy. Equilibrium is in normal math though right?

no its in further maths and physics. its an option in further maths and gets much much harder than physics, but there are a few crossovers with angular velocity and centriputal forces
