I do physics at a2 but I find it REALLY difficalt. It's not even like there's that much solid learning. It's just difficalt concepts that you have to get your head around and knowing when to apply which formula, also you have to remember ALL the as stuff as any of it could come up.

I am doing A2 physics next year. I've looked at the course, and it seems tough. A lot of work will need to be put in to get a good grade. If you get a C or higher this year you will probably be fine to do it next year.

I am still doing AS Physics but I was given my A2 topics to do as well by my teacher and I don't think it is that bad. It depends what you want to do after A-levels, if you want to go to university then see which is the most relevant for your course (if a sciencey thing then choose the physics, a humanity such as geography is really good at demonstrating a breadth of knowledge, but A2 is your chance to show your depth of knowledge).
I would just wait until results day, remember A2 is a natural progression from AS, so if you do well in your AS then that is a good sign for your A2. Also your maths will be a big help for physics so take your scores with that into consideration also.
Also just because some people find it hard doesn't necessarily mean it is going to be hard for you. I could never have done geography, I wouldn't have been any good at it and would have hated it, but for me physics is perfectly natural and it comes easily, so it is entirely personal preference. If you are really concerned about how you will find it, look at the specification and revision material on here to get an idea of the course, or ask your teacher if you can borrow an A2 textbook or talk you through some of the course. 

You are more likely to do better in a subject you enjoy too, so if you can stick with what you like.
