I often wonder about what type of people study math and physics. I am currently in a Maritime school, studying to be machine chief. It's sorta difficult to explain the education. We have Maths on A level, physics on B, chemistry C and a bunch of electrical courses, which is the hardest of them all. I am thinking about taking a second education, undergrad or masters in Physics or Maths. But, my question is; Is the education achievable for the ones who struggled with physics in high school and college, or is just for the people who laugh at college level math? What I am basically asking is, do average people stand a chance in the fields of math and physics? I don't know If I'm average or good. I get good grades in physics and math, but I also put some (sometimes a lot) effort into it. EDIT: I think this belongs under academic guidance.
