Which is better? A-level maths or physicsWatch
But I've started having second thoughts and am contemplating changing my option from maths to physics.
Could you please tell me if it would be a good idea to change my option from maths to physics??
Will I regret choosing physics because every website I've read online states a level physics is really difficult
So please let me know from your personal experience which a level subject you think is better/easier.
Maths or physics?
Can I not choose physics without doing a level maths?
No, but if you want to study more or less any degree with any physics basis afterwards (e.g. physics, engineering, etc) then you also will normally be required to be studying A-level Maths. Hence, most people take them as a pair, because A-level Physics by itself adds nothing to your set of A-levels as it gives you exactly 0 additional options as far as degree subject choices go without A-level Maths. It's a bit pointless taking A-level Physics without A-level Maths, even though A-level Physics assumes no content from A-level Maths (that said without also taking A-level Maths, A-level Physics will probably be more work as you'll need to continue practicing the GCSE Maths topics that come up in A-level Physics, which if you were taking A-level Maths would happen by default).
Ok thanks that was really helpful I'm choosing to study medicine at uni so I guess doing a level maths would be a better option for me?
Unless you are planning to apply Cambridge medicine there is no reason or benefit in taking either over any other A-level. Every other medical school accepts any third subject without prejudice. So just pick literally any subject that you are confident you can get an A or A* in. Read through the first post in this thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5611422
