# Is physics or further maths harder?

## Is physics or further maths harder?

Physics is easier if you’re intelligent, by which I mean capable of understanding abstract ideas quickly and thinking for yourself. Maths is easier if you’re knowledgeable, as in capable of memorizing large chunks of information and mindlessly regurgitating it on paper like a soulless machine.

**Is further maths like physics?**

They’re both quite difficult in my opinion (i take both) further maths has barely any content apart from a few definitions in stats and is basically just practise whereas physics has a little bit of non maths content to learn like particle topic in as etc.

### Can I take further maths without physics?

Those unable to take Further Maths A-level may take Maths, Physics, an AS in Further Maths, and an A-level in any of Chemistry, Biology or Electronics. English: applicants need to take either English Literature or combined English Language and Literature at A-level.

**Which is easier maths or physics A level?**

Physics is a lot easier if you can understand what the question wants you to do. Maths is more predictable and practice is the key. Whereas in physics you can practice all you like but there still might be a question you can’t do.

## Which A-Levels are most respected?

A-Level Maths is likely the most popular A-Level out there. The reason this subject is so often considered the most respected A-Level is probably due to it teaching the fundamentals of a lot of other subjects.

**How hard is it to get a * Further Maths?**

A-Level Further Maths is considered to be one of the hardest A-Levels out there, if not the hardest. You should only be applying for this subject if you are the most able mathematician. Its little brother, A-Level Maths, is also quite hard. The only difference in average requirements for these courses is 1 GCSE grade.

### Which A levels are most respected?

**Which A levels do universities prefer?**

Universities love academic students, especially those with a science A-Level. What is this? Computer Science, Physics, and Maths will get you onto some pretty prestigious courses too. Students with these A-Levels tend to get onto courses like Astrophysics, Computer Science, and many more advanced professions.

## Do universities like Further Maths?

Further Maths is also highly desirable, if not required, by many top universities for Mathematics, Science and Engineering courses, as well as Computing and Economics. It may be studied alongside, or after, A level Mathematics.

**Which a level is hardest?**

I’ve compiled this list of the top 10 hardest A-Levels so you don’t have to….

- A-Level Maths.
- A-Level Computer Science.
- A-Level History.
- A-Level Psychology.
- A-Level Biology.
- A-Level English Literature.
- A-Level Physics.
- A-Level Chemistry.

### How hard is it to get a * further maths?

**Which one is better maths or physics?**

Mathematics. This is because mathematicians gave birth to physics long ago. Without mathematics, no physical theory would have developed.

## Is further maths respected?

In conclusion, A-Level Further Maths is definitely highly respected, but you have to apply to the correct area of study going forward because if it doesn’t relate it may not hold the same prestige.

**Is further maths A-Level worth it?**

### Which A level is hardest?

**Is further maths worth doing?**

## Do universities like further maths?

**Is further maths difficult?**

It can be difficult to hit the top grades in further maths because of its sheer complexity. Most students struggle to get their heads around regular maths, and further maths is a big step up from this. Since it stands out amongst the A levels as being difficult, it is undoubtedly a huge step up from GCSE.

### Is further maths actually useful?

**Why is physics so hard?**

In fact, physics is considered by most people to be among the most challenging courses you can take. One of the reasons physics is so hard is that it involves a lot of math. You probably recall your middle school math teacher telling you that algebra builds on itself. You learn one step at a time.

## Who are smarter mathematicians or physicists?

Originally Answered: Which are usually smarter, mathematicians or physicists? Well they score about the same intelligence, but Mathematicians have to know applications of math, along with the theory. Physics is really just a type of applied math.

**Which subject is hard math or physics?**

Physics might be more challenging because of the theoretical concepts, the mathematical calculations, laboratory experiments and even the need to write lab reports.

### Is further maths stressful?

A-Level Further Maths is possibly the hardest A-Level out there. It’s a huge step up from A-Level Maths, and even GCSE Further Maths. The workload is immense, and the content is intensely difficult. Unless you’re an able student with a good work ethic, I would not recommend taking this A-Level.

**What jobs require further maths?**

Mathematicians and statisticians are in demand across a range of sectors and employment opportunities are commonly found in:

- education.
- engineering.
- finance, banking and accountancy firms.
- government – local, central and agencies.
- insurance companies.
- IT, business consultancy and operational research companies.

## Do universities accept Further Maths?

Some leading universities now specify Further Mathematics as an entry requirement for their mathematics degrees. 33% of Mathematics BSc degree courses mention Further Mathematics in their entry requirements, including it in their A level offers or encouraging students to take it if possible.
