Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, so I'm not too sure whether I posted under the correct topic or not. I am currently a junior at a quite competitive high school. All around me, there are people thousands of times smarter than I am. I know very well myself that I am no genius, but I've always had (and still have) a passion for physics and mathematics. Even though I am struggling a little in my Pre Cal H and AP Physics 1-2 Accelerated classes, I just can't let go of the excitement of just being able to work on math and physics problems. (I have B's in those classes right now.) However, I do know that university classes are a lot more rigorous and demanding than high school curricula. Initially, I thought of double majoring in both physics and mathematics, but now I think this is a really pathetic and far-fetched goal of mine. Can somebody, preferably somebody who is/was a physics or math major, tell me just how rigorous a university major in physics or math is and whether I really am just dreaming too ambitiously to double major in such fields, given my low level of intelligence?
