How much as a percentage of A-Level Maths is Physics now? I don’t think I am going to get in to A-Level Maths in September because I got a 5-5 in Combined Science last August.

The only physics in A-Level maths is just mechanics - topics like kinematics, projectile motion, moments, forces in equilibrium etc.
For my exam board (OCR MEI), about half of Paper 1 is Mechanics and there is 3 papers in total.

If by physics you mean mechanics it depends on your course. I do OCR which has 3 final papers, half of one of the papers is mechanics so a sixth is mechanics I guess. I imagine other courses will be simillar

the main physics-y part of maths is mechanics but you never know when they can apply pure maths knowledge in a physics-y kinda question (looking at you ocr pure paper two)

Physics is actually applied maths, and the mechanics in maths is only thought of as physics because some of it's done at GCSE
