Hello, everyone. I'm a recently-turned 16-year-old who is about to be a university freshman. The issue is, I'm not sure what area of study I want to go into. I'm pretty good at math and things of the sort (as for current class level, by next summer I should be done with Honors Calculus I), but I'm not sure if I'm cut out to go into physics. My SAT math was a 720 (I've only taken it once to see how I did; I haven't actually studied for it yet to go for a max score for applications). I know that a simple score isn't a great gauge, but I'm just putting it out there to give you a general idea. Anyways, as for sciences, I'll be taking astronomy and chemistry (both with labs). As it stands, I only have a basic understanding of things such as quantum mechanics, and I still find a good bit of it to be a little confusing (I haven't actually taken any physics-related science classes since my freshman year of high school due to my old high school's curriculum requirements; the guidance counselor also wouldn't let me take the senior physics class back when I was a sophomore; it was basically an advanced classical mechanics course). Specific fields that interest me are particle physics, astrophysics, and theoretical physics. I just don't want to begin pursuing a physics degree just to find that I'm not cut out for it. Is there any way I can gauge myself now? I'm feeling very uneasy, and classes start soon. I'd really like to get all of this sorted out. Is anyone that has gone down the physics path could advise me, it'd be greatly appreciated. Also, please forgive me for any mistakes; I'm new.
