Is a 6 good enough to do physics a level?Watch
So basically on my gcse I got 8 in maths 6 in physics and 7 in English lit. I’m obviously doing maths and I’m also doing computer science but for my third options it’s between English and physics. I’m leaning towards physics but is a 6 good enough? I didn’t really try at gcse at all but I’m not sure if a 6 is just too low to start, the sixth form allow me to but I want to know if I’ll just fall off. Also English was kinda lucky as I done no revision and got lucky with the questions. Cheers
I don't think it should be a problem, theres a couple of people in my physics class who are doing well and they got a B in GCSE physics. I think as long as you keep on top of your work and go through anything that you struggle with ASAP, then you'll be fine. Maths a-level will help with the mechanics part of physics so you should definitely be alright with that section.
I think my issue was not taking time to memorise as much of the equations, and because of that I may be behind on that knowledge usually acquired at gcse, how much of an issue is this?
Completely unrelated but we are literally the same person. I'm doing A level Maths, Physics and Computer Science. I also got a 6 in Physics and I also got an 8 in Maths. Personally I'm just going to see how it is in the first week or so for physics and if I find it too hard or anything I'll try and change.
