Is Physics A-Levels harder than Maths A-Levels?Watch
Having said that, they say physics at uni is on a completely different level to that at A Level, and it's more often than not harder at degree level than maths at degree level.
Don't get me wrong, both require a lot of work to get high marks. So long you enjoy them, then they will get you far.
I don't know whether it was a mistake to choose maths instead of physics. Maths will open more doors at uni (usually), but physics is required for most quantitative scientific degrees.
I'm currently in the process of redoing my Maths A Level to do a physics related degree at uni.
Hardness depends on what you mean. Harder to understand? Harder to solve? Harder to score marks in?
-I would say concept wise, Physics is harder to wrap your head around.
- In terms of the mathematical difficulty, Maths obviously is harder. The math required for A Level Physics is basic. In terms of questions, Math questions are slightly harder than Physics I'd say...
- Harder to score in? People usually marginally receive higher grades in Maths than Physics...
On the whole, I'd imagine both Math and Physics go parallel. Physics requires a little more work than Maths imo.
