      You don’t have to be amazing at maths to do physics, but a lot of physics involves describing the universe mathematically, so I think you’d have to have some ability in maths. I don’t see why having dyslexia should stop you at all, if you get the right tools to help you learn.

      Some of my friends at Oxford who were studying maths had dyslexia.
