hi i'm in year 11 and considering taking physics for a level, along with maths and further maths. i enjoy maths a lot but i'm worried if there is a lot of memorising of the content in physics. i also HATE electricity at gcse so is electricity at a level really complicated?? i got a 9 in my gcse physics mock and 8 in my maths mock in november, but still worried for my a level combinations nonetheless. any advice/help would be really appreciated!!

Electricity at physics A Level is a lot more complicated than GCSE - GCSE electricity can be done in the blink of an eye comparatively.

To be honest I don’t think getting an 8 or 9 indicates how well you’d do at A Level. I got A* and found A level physics ridiculously hard. A better indicator is the type of student you are. If you’re the type of person who’s good at memorising lots of content for exams then it won’t be easy as there isn’t that much to memorise in the new spec. If you’re more of a logical thinker, then it’ll be a better fit as It involves a lot of complex problem solving (in my opinion).
