I am currently in year 12 and i take maths chem and bio. I am considering changing maths for physics though because i enjoy physics more. Maths is edexcel and physics is aqa. i'm probably about the same ability wise.

To those of you who take physics:

Is it harder than Maths? If so, how hard and how difficult would it be to get an A/A*?

Would it be too much to take 3 sciences?

Which one requires more work, physics or maths?

As someone who has taken both A Level Maths and Physics, I can very confidently say that Physics is not just the hardest out of the two of them,

A Level Physics is by far the hardest STEM subject and no-one can say otherwise.

**it is the hardest A Level**. I know this because I got a 9 in Physics back in GCSE but I found A Level Physics*hard and ended up with a B at the end of my A Levels.***very, very**A Level Physics is by far the hardest STEM subject and no-one can say otherwise.

What do you want to do after A-levels?

I do maths further maths physics and chem, physics is harder than maths and a lot of what we’re doing in maths at the start of year 12 is only slightly harder than gcse. I think physics will require more work especially without maths. Although, the maths in physics isn’t that hard the only thing beyond gcse is logarithms which isn’t too hard. Physics is a really interesting subject (I wanna study it at uni so im probably a bit biased tho 😂) but it is hard. Doing 3 sciences isn’t impossible but it is hard. At my school the highest anyone who has done physics without maths has got is a B whereas in maths loads of people get a/A* without physics so maybe bear that in mind. Another alternative would be to do 4 for now and drop whichever you’re worse at. In the end It is your decision but hope this helps 😊

Both are tough subjects at A levels to get these grades anyway. You said that you enjoy physics more, if so, take that. Such an attitude to a subject turns mostly the scale. And no, it is not too much to take three sciences for A levels.

The last question is up to you. The more pleasure you have for a subject, the lesser efffort you need to get on with the lessons. The range of those is almost equal.
