What science do you prefer and why? (I omitted biology because it's nowhere near the difficulty of chem and phys and it's not really a science LOL)
Why do you think Chemistry is rote learning? I find that it has alot of calculation questions which are very annoying for me. Is Chemistry like Biology rote wise? I don't like Chemistry that much because I don't know how to study for it, are you sure it's rote?I only do chem, but I guess it's getting better. Year 11 was more interesting as it was conceptual, whereas the hsc counterpart is more applied which is fine, though there are some boring topics (*cough* fermentation *cough"). Wish I had done physics however - seems less rote-able which suits my learning style.
Found Chemistry harder than Physics tbh. Both are stupid subjects since there wasn't much mathsPrelim Physics is more interesting than Prelim Chemistry (although Prelim Chemistry is just as easy and nearly as interesting)
Prelim chemistry and prelim physics are roughly the same difficulty
I found HSC Chemistry easier and more interesting than HSC Physics (except I did like the Space topic in HSC physics)
HSC physics is harder than HSC chemistry which is harder than HSC biology (that's why biology course has lots more content to compensate and similar story for chemistry)
Then again I did the Industrial Chemistry option, which is fairly similar to the ammonia section in Chemical Monitoring, which means more cross-over.
