    You can do it, easy.

    It is a hard A level, no lie.

    But I know people who did the same GCSE award as you and got ridiculously good Chemistry grades at AS and A2

    just make sure you work hard and end up going through all past papers before your exam
    Thank you, that's given me so much more confidence!!

    Yeah this is true.

    Titration calculations, properties of the periodic table, balancing equations, different types of bonding overlap a bit with GCSE.
    I can't really remember what else since I've just finished my A levels and it was so long ago haha

    Tbh, I think chemistry AS really eases you in. I didn't feel a 'jump'.
    ah that's good then!!

    I just finished my AS year. For me, chemistry was like being stabbed repeatedly in the eye with that stupid buret thing.

    Like a lot of people are saying, chemistry GCSE and A-level are 2 completely different subjects. I didn't really like any of the sciences at GCSE and took chemistry AS because I wanted to do medicine and it's since become my favourite A-level and I should be starting a chemistry degree in September. Obviously this isn't the case with everyone but it's always worth checking the specifications and other sources to check whether you think the content will interest you or not
