Hello! My name's Luiza and in a few days I'll have to decide what I want to study in university. I'm currently caught between anthropology and physics. I'd like to ask you how is the physics course. As someone who is currently in the research field (or so I believe), you're following the path I would if I were to study physics. Can you please tell me what is it like? How well should one's grades/understanding of physics prior to university? Thank you in advance for your attention!
Hello hello, so sorry for answering this late, but my graduation is in a few days (!) and my life has been a bunch of deadlines. I suppose you’ve already made your decision (I hope you chose physics. HAH just kidding, kind of). But anyway, I find that doing research is the best feeling ever. Being completely caught up in your work, because it is new, and it is something that you’re building from your own mind. It gives you a sense of purpose. And your highschool level of knowledge on physics doesn’t really matter at all; in uni you always start from scratch anyway. All the best on your career!
