I've just started my AS levels at a new school in a different area. My previous school was a pretty average state school and my new school is incredibly competitive which is a massive shock to the system (I've gone from being one of the top students to a little fish in a big pond ahaha). I was originally planning on studying physics or a joint physics and politics or philosophy at uni but I'm finding the AS physics course really difficult. I've not got on too well with my teacher and i find the atmosphere in the class in a bit unfriendly and competitive. I understand the concepts well but I'm struggling to apply them in questions and I'm struggling with some of the maths of the course (even though I'm doing well in my maths class). I'm beginning to think that I'm going to fail the subject at worst and at best do considerably worse in physics than in my other subjects. Should I drop physics and just focus on my other courses?
