I have applied to do a course at a top UK university for physics. The first year being a foundation year (maths physics and chemistry). Because I never did these subjects at the end of school. I topped my class in two subjects and was not far behind in another at the end of school. I'm in doubt now on whether I should do this physics foundation year as everyone (not one of them do or have done well at school) is saying it is really hard. Like it is impossible. They seem to believe that no matter how much effort I put in I will fail. How hard is it?
