      I liked Physics the least but I didn’t do worse in it than the others. I only did Biology and Chemistry A-level and found Chemistry really tough, I had to spend a lot of time studying to bring my marks up, but I managed to go from a C to an A.

      I didn’t do biology as I’m squeamish and didn’t want to cut up animals!
      Who knew that one of my first jobs would be dissecting cows eyes!

      Funnily enough chemistry was my worst. I just could not get my head around some concepts. As a result I spent much more time focusing on it and is probably the reason why I like it so much now.

      Physics was my least favourite (apart from we would make things explode in class). Biology was always my favourite. I use a lot of chemistry, biology and maths at work now.

      Physics was my weakest, too. It felt like the same exercise to me: Read the question and write down a bunch of greek letters given in the question, then look for a formula that had most of them in it and keep substituting them with other formulae until you found all that you had. Sometimes integrate over time if it was fancy. Then solve for x.

      Just didn’t pique my interest that much?

      It wasn’t until uni until we did the interesting physics! Loved quantum mechanics, thermodynamics and spectroscopy.
