Would physics, maths and history be a large workload?

I do Physics maths and English lit and I don't think it's too much to handle - arguably having the essay subject is a nice change of pace from maths n phys, economics maths and phys is like maths, maths, and more maths yk

A levels are in themselves a reasonable amount of work. An A level is a LOT more work than a GCSE (there's a reason people do 10 GCSEs or so and only 3 A levels).

History isn't particularly more work than politics or economics. Physics and maths together are probably slightly less than the workload of two less related subjects, because there's some common material.

I think Sinnoh took this combination along with FM and might be able to advise?

Politics or economics are likely to be the same amount of work as history at A-level anyway.

History is one of the hardest A-Levels you can do. One of my brother's friends' took GCSE History and achieved an A* grade, but at A-Level he struggled to achieve above a D grade. Mostly due to the topics of study chosen were not interesting to him, so he lost motivation to revise and study hard for History A-Level.

Economics should be an easy A grade if you work hard and do past papers.

i never found maths and physics to be much of a trouble!!! it's more application than memorisation, so as long as there's regular practice - you're good!!

i did biology so i can't say much on history, but biology is one of those super heavy content subjects and i actually liked having something like this alongside maths and physics

Wouldn't be more or less work than most other combinations. Coursework for history takes a bit of stress off exam season, but then you have to be careful not to procrastinate with it.
