## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

I'm currently a third year Economics major hoping to switch to the Economics and Mathematics by the end of this year. Considering I should have been a Physics major in the first place, I have started taking Physics course starting from my third year in an attempt to eventually go to graduate school in Physics. I'm listing the Math and Physics that I have taken or hope to take by the time I graduate.

Calculus I (A); Calculus II (A-); Linear Algebra (A); Probability (A); Analysis I (A+); Analysis II (A+); Topology (A). I have done these.

In case I'm able to switch my major, I'll be able to squeeze in a one or two more classes (perhaps a course on Calculus on Manifolds, Algebra etc.)

I have done Mechanics (A+) and QM (B). I'm taking Condensed Matter Physics, QM II and Advanced QM this term. In case my major gets changed, I can go all Physics in my senior year and take 8 courses or 7 courses + senior year project. The courses will be the usual culprits:

E&M, Waves and Optics, SR, GR, Classical Mechanics etc. Perhaps one or two advanced courses. Particle Physics etc.

Given my trajectory up till my senior year, what would be the best way to go to graduate school in Physics? Should I try a second bachelor's? Am I preparing myself enough to go to graduate school in Physics? There are a lot of threads on this forum from people with similar cases, but I'd appreciate if you could advise me based on my trajectory since I am trying to become as Physics oriented as possible during my last 2-3 semesters.

P.S: I'm from a university in Lahore, Pakistan.

I'd really like your input on this!
