    So I'm starting year 12, I've met all my teacher and had a double period with each of them so far. I have chosen ICT, Maths and Physics at A-Level; I am already struggling with physics after the first lesson (I did well in GCSE btw) and I know it's just the first lesson and I've already lost hope in it lol. My maths teacher told me before I picked A level maths (I had him in year 11 I stayed at the same school) that I would only achieve a C-D grade; and I was disappointed but determined to do better than this. I am currently finding AS level maths quite easy and want to take it as a degree but idk whether he's right or not in saying I won't achieve higher than a C grade. I just felt disheartened. I really need to knuckle down this year and keep it together because last year I was an emotional wreck tbh and it got in the way of my studies hence why I didn't do too well in all of my gcses. Does anyone have any similar issues or advice if they felt this way starting year 12?

    What will you do differently in A-levels than GCSE's, ask urself that.

    the gap between gcse and a level is all non sense. Of course the workload has increased due to the amount of lessons decreased but the lesson difficulty hasn't changed significantly, the teachers say that in order for you to revise
