Am I ready for Mathematical Physics?

I'm finishing high-school in December at the ripe age of 23 (better late than never :P) and I have taken an interest in both physics and mathematics, although especially mathematics. I want to study mathematical physics abroad and I was wondering if my Icelandic credentials are good enough.

I know high-school mathematics all the way through calculus (learned a lot of proofs on my own). I have also learned all the physics and chemistry that you can find on Khan Academy.

Is that enough to start a B.sc. degree in mathematical physics?

Re: Am I ready for Mathematical Physics?

I am not sure there is B. Sc. degree in mathematical physics. This topic is specialization at Ph.D. and post Doc. level. What you could do now take a degree in physics, you will be required to take math as well. After that it depends on your Masters advisor assignment which will align you to what you are aiming to do. Hopefully you will not change your mind by then.

Perhaps it is a new degree. Take a look at this: </title> <meta content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" http-equiv="Content-Type"> <head> <title>UWinnipeg Physics

You can also try a google search "Mathematical Physics". It seems to be a new(?) 'field' of sorts.
