Is physics easier than methods?

Hey guys,

So Iím doing physics and methods 1/2 this year in year 11, and so far I have found physics dry and just plugging values in formulas. However I find methods much more Ďfuní and interesting. I also heard that in year 12 physics it will be a complete different story. Is it harder to score high in methods than physics?

Some topics are, but there are some topics that aren't and also require knowledge that is equivalent to that of specialist maths. Also can you please answer my recent poll and question? Thank you!  :)

Topics that require equivalent knowledge of specialist maths?

Iím curious as to which topics you think that would be.

In general to answer the original question. Obviously it depends on an individual basis so I canít give an answer that will be correct to everyone. But for me, someone who didnít find written work came as easily (eg English, BM and Physics worded questions), I would rage it is harder to get 45+ in Physics, but easier to get 30-40. You can pretty easily rote learn content and formulas and do decently in Physics I would say it is a bit more challenging to do the same in methods.

The Physics study design is tending more towards worded questions and the exams are matching this.

Like kinematics and vectors for example.
