It differs. If you're good at the theoretical stuff, then you'll find the looser essay subjects --English Literature, Politics -- hard, but you'll find Maths, Physics, etc. quite manageable. This is what I've heard. Maths, Chemistry, and Physics will always be hard for me.

It's a big jump and you have to be prepared to spend up to 10 hours a week per subject studying, that includes; lessons, homework, coursework, writing up notes, going over stuff you don't full understand or can't fully remember. But it's doable, lots of people get As . . . BUT 5 subjects aren't necessary. it doesn't really benefit you. It just gives you more work, stress and exams and uni offers are based around 3/3.5 a-levels. If the requirements are AABc then you probably won't get onto the course if you get ABBCd which is what you risk doing . . . especially the people that can breeze through GCSEs with little effort but still get As risk thinking they can do the same for a-levels. YOU CAN'T, so many people with good gcses end up retaking year 12, don't let that happen to you.
