I'm having to decide which degree to take now and can't really make my mind up between straight Physics or Theoretical. I will be applying to Oxford, Bristol, Manchester, Imperial and Nottingham if anyone cares. Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on the 'Physics with Theoretical Physics' course. I've never really had any lab work in Physics but I'm assuming I would find it tedious and boring (if it's anything like chemistry lab work). I much prefer the mathematical side and am much more able at mathematics than practical. I'll have Maths, Further Maths and Physics A-levels next year. Also what are the job prospects like for a graduate in Theoretical Physics as opposed to straight Physics. I've heard that many go into finance and IT which I wouldn't mind as long as I'm earning good money. If anyone's got any advice I'd love to hear it; and if you are studying Physics in the UK I'll take your word as gospel.
