Chemistry In Physics

  1. Apr 16, 2010 #1
    Hey all, if I want to get a degree in Physics do I have to take chemistry in university, because I suck at it (I have an 83% in chemistry).

    Almost certainly, though it may depend on the school. My university requires two semesters of general chemistry.

    You have an 83.. but you suck at it?

    Wow, by those standards, I suck at most of my major.

    I'm in the 9th grade so that's pretty bad for my class.

    Depends on how well you do on the AP test and the specific college's requirements.

    Yea you will need to take chemistry. I wouldn't really worry that you "suck at it." There will be some challenges on the way to a physics degree and I would say that freshmen chemistry is not a big deal. If you are really worried, wait to take it if possible. Once you have conquered some upper level physics classes, freshmen chem will be a relatively easy A.
