I am currently in year 11 and about to start my A levels and i was wondering if A level physics would still be do able without a GCSE in it. I have heard it is quite similar to A level maths which i am also taking. I am predicted a A/A* in maths GCSE. I need to know if i would be capable because my friend said it's mostly maths anyway.

Thanks.

ps. reply quick i don't have long to change my options.


I think you meant to post this as a question. Also isn't it compulsory to take physics GCSE (as part of triple science) or at least there would be some physics content in double science? Although if you're predicted an A* in maths GCSE I don't see why you wouldn't be taking the triple option. Anyway, all that aside. Yes it would be. There's basically no GCSE in it (or very little) simply because you learn very little at GCSE. Start over the summer, you'll be fine.
