If I were to suggest it would be beneficial if you would pursue Chemistry.
Apparently you have made an option for two very related sciences. along the course of which ever path you've choses, you will encounter the subjects to be similar. for example you have taken physics you will still have chemistry subjects along the way though your concentration would be more physical but the topics would be chemical. and if you're gonna do a thesis you should be familiar with the chemistry part of your work.
If you would pursue chemistry, there are lots of physical science topics that ranges from thermo to quantum though your approach would be more chemistry type. However you are more likely to be focused on the industry rather on theoretical.
there's no such things as "easier area" because in either way you really should work hard to get a degree.
i personally shoose chemistry because i would want to deal more with the chemical aspects of life. and i found out that there are plenty of universities that offer financial assistance in my dessertation (btw im focusing on computational chemistry, more math than physics).
1. chemistry has visible reactions, physics is more on how things work
2. chemistry wants to know the effects of the reaction to a system(e.g humans) physics deals with the nano level of the particles and how they are working in quantum mechanics
3. both have rigid calculations.
4. chemistry is more on life physics is more on the movements of life.
5. both focuses on the atoms, molecules and compounds
6. you cannot take physics without chem and chem without physics.
ps. better take a chemistry degree and pursue a physics maters :)
hope this helps
