I've posted this on maths as well. I tutor a bright boy who lacks confidence. He got A* in physics and an A in maths at GCSE. He is doing 3 sciences and maths at A-level and would like to do physics at university. However, he says he finds maths too hard (after a week) and wants to drop it. Thing is - he's doing physics which has a lot of maths in it. Is it sensible to do physics without maths? Do universities expect a physicist to have maths A-level? (I think I know the answer). Any advice would be welcome.
