    how much maths is involved and what other subjects did you take on at alevel ??
    Don't do chemistry it may be respected but a C in chemistry is not going to get you as far as say a B or A in psychology, seriously chemistry is hard don't do it. You will be working twice as hard as your friends doing other subjects then if you end up with a C like me youll be well pissed when your mate gets an offer from Bath with his A in psychology. Srs i be mirin dat pscyh

    I'm in Yr13 and I'm doing A2 Chem (AQA). The concepts can be difficult at first but once you wrap your head around the concept and practice questions its not too difficult.

    In fact I personally find A2 bio more difficult- purely because of the application Qs in the exam.

    I'm enjoying chemistry- it is really interesting and fun!

    Don't be put off at the fact it's hard work because Alevels in general require a lot of work. As long as you enjoy the subject and work at it there is no reason why you shouldn't do well.

    thank you you see I am the opposite I like subjects like history English literature theatre studies ect but I love human biology and am going to keep on biology alevel but was told that chemistry would be a must if I decide I want to a human biology degree ...
    You must understand that lots of Life Sciences degrees and Medicine/Dentistry require you to have Chemistry. No two ways about it. If you want to go down that path, I strongly recommend you do Chemistry.

    I did AQA;

    It's fine if you put the work in. It does require a lot of work and time but it's probably one of the most highly respected A-Level's you could achieve. Chemistry provides the foundations for lots of Biology courses at University!

    Chemistry at A-Level may seem hard at first but once you get your head around the basic concepts, you'll find yourself enjoying it
    Don't be put off by it's reputation as being a hard subject- if you enjoy it, you'll get good grades (obviously coupled with hard work too )
