Yep! It was compulsory up until I was 16 and then I chose to carry on with physics and chemistry (and maths) at A-level (I didn’t do biology because I am really squeamish and don’t like bugs etc either!). Then after that I went to university to do just physics. 🙂
Same for me – everyone at my school had to do all the sciences until GCSE aged 16. We had a great physics teacher who always told us a silly physics joke at the end of every class! Then I did biology, chemistry, maths and geography for A Level, and liked chemistry so much that I decided to do it at university too!
Yes! But I also studied many other things, like visual arts and music. I was just not sure what I wanted to study university so I ended up taking many courses all to my senior year (A-levels). In the end I took Earth Sciences at University, which in my case was an engineering degree with lots of geology, atmospheric physics and geochemistry.
