Physics vs Chemistry??
John34 Leaving Cert Physics12

Hi all, I'm trying to decide between physics and chemistry for my leaving cert subject choice. I'm wondering would you reccomend physics or chemistry more? Thanks for your help.

i do both physics and chemistry and i find chemistry easier but that may due to the teachers influence so my advice is choose tge one with the better teacher and save yourself unnescary stress

PHYSICS UNDOUBEDTLY

if you are very good at higher level maths physics should be a breeze, i don't do chemistry but physics is alright, lots of algebra though.

As someone said above, go with the better teacher. My friends (who do both phys and chem) chemistry teacher isn't the best and it makes the subject that much harder.

if you are above-average with maths, then physics will require very little work, especially if paired with applied maths. Chemistry has significantly more on the course, but can be easier if you are a good rote learner. That being said, you can still get good marks in chemistry without rote learning skills. Coming from someone studying all four of these subjects.

chemistry is harder to get your head around but its way more enjoyable than physics and if ur planning on doing a course in the medical field then chemistry is the choice u want to make for me i do both and i enjoy chemistry more but physics is easier for me as i am good at maths but do both if u can

i find chemistry way easier and would prob help a lot if you did biology but physics is so interesting and more fun than chemistry
