Hi,
I am totally confused about whether I should do A Level maths or physics. Which subject is the easiest and what are your experiences?
Thank you in advance!

maths will be easier for you than physics 100% but the key word is "easier" not easy

What other subjects are you doing? What do you want to do after a levels? What are you predicted at GCSE?

If you don't want to do something physics related, do maths. If you want to do physics, I would strongly advise not doing it without maths, as physics requires a lot of maths, beyond GCSE level. Everyone in my physics class does maths, and about a third of us also do further maths.

Well, I am doing A-Level biology and chemistry, and hope to get into medicine. My predicted grades were all 9's.

I’ve heard physics and maths are heavily related, as in there’s lots of physics in maths and lots of maths in physics. In my school it is a requirement that you take both alevel maths and alevel physics

oh i think it will be "easier" for you to take math as it nots memorisation based rather skilled based so youll be fine if you practice from day 1. in my opinion.

I'd say go for maths (or maybe both if you're up for 4). Bio, chem & maths are appropriate subjects to get into medicine, and maths is significantly easier than physics. I also take further maths, and still find that easier than physics.

Do you mean that you need to do maths if you're doing physics? That I can see, as anyone going on to use physics will need to use maths anyway.
But if you mean that you have to take physics if you're doing maths, that makes no sense. True, there is mechanics in maths, but you don't need anything that you won't learn in maths. And there are plenty of things people could do with maths that won't need physics, e.g. economics or computer science.

Yes sorry I meant I’d you take physics you must also take maths
