    What is different using between "both" and "both of" ?

    I'm not sure what is correct between
    - I have done both of Mathematics and Physics exams.
    or
    - I have done both Mathematics and Physics exams.
    thank you in advance for your suggestion :)

    Not a teacher

    Hi there!

    The correct option here is "I have done both Mathematics and Physics exams."

    I hope this help!

    There is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.

    It is unnecessary to capitalise exam subjects, unless they are languages.

    Please state that you are not a teacher, in accordance with the forum rules.
