I would like to study music a level and music technology, is philosophy and physics good to study with them? Or is physics not very useful without maths?

I’ve been looking round sixth forms and I’ve heard that if you take physics, you must take maths otherwise it will be too difficult. So if you wanted to do physics you’d have to take maths with it instead of philosophy or you could pick a different two options along with your music subjects. If you have some open evenings to go to then it would be a good idea to ask the physics teachers there and see what they say or ask your physics teacher at your current school.
I hope this helps 😁

You would be severely limited options-wise in pursuing physics if you haven't studied maths. You'd actually have better luck (if you were more leaning towards the theoretical side) doing physics through a maths degree without physics a-level. If it's something that you take just because you enjoy it, then sure take A-level physics without maths. If your maths background is strong, you won't need A-level maths since the physics course is designed for maths not to be co-requisite. Any knowledge from a-level maths (of which there is quite little), will be taught from scratch.

Music is absolutely fine without physics, although maths is a good combination with both philosophy and music

thanks, I've just heard that physics goes very well with music tech, and universities like it
