hi, i just joined this forum *checks watch* 2 mins ago, and this is my first forum i have ever joined, so excuse me please if I don't know forum rules, or the "forum way of life". I got to this forum after looking things up related to physics and college. Anyway, I am a 10 standard kid, who lives in India, but was born in the US, so im kind of open minded. I like, bordering on love(if not for sooo many pesky exams) physics. Im one of the topper, if not the topper in physics, and do so without having studied at all(dumb I know, always get the 'you can get 100% if you actually studied and wasn't so lazy, funny thing, almost every teacher I have met has said this), I even thought my two friends physics, and they were doing pretty bad, until I thought them, pulling them up to the top 10 in the class. So as you can see obviously I figured Ill do physics in college. the problem? I am pretty bad at maths, atleast when the exams come around, because no matter how I feel about my paper, i always fail by a few marks(again I didn't study much, I really should start studying) so I wanted to know if physics is good for me. I do IGCSE in school, and have my 10th boards in november. So can you suggest some plan for me? like where should I go for college(prefer US, why? just because), what grades I would need, should I do MS or Phd, should I take general physics, or go into a particular section I like(ie particle physics) and what kind of job opportunities you get out of physics. also I am a noob at all this college stuff, so some help there would be nice too. Thanks in advance, if there is any mistake in my post( I am sure there is) please point it out. One last thing, I seem to like particle physics, but also have an interest in energy and automobile engineering(i am not a car know-it-all like some people, kind of like the aero-dynamics and fuel economy etc) Sorry for such a long post.
