Will Chemistry A-level be too hard for me?(doing double science) watch


    I did Double Science and got an A in Core and an A* in Additional. Doing Double Science won't hider you in any way (at least not in my experience) but Chemistry can be difficult and a lot of hard work. You have to make sure you revise anything you don't understand or anything you think you'll forget because there is a lot of content in Chemistry and you don't want to get stuck behind. I spent my Christmas holidays revising Chemistry the most (because I had a mock in the first week back) and came out with an A in the mock, so, if you're committed and motivated, you can do well in Chemistry.

    I would like to know if it will be too hard for me as im doing core and additional and i am predicted an A and a B.

    I find chemistry the easiest science and i wanted to do either chemistry or computer science at a level as i am predicted a B in ICT(although i have heard they aren't too similar but hey)

    can you tell me what grades you got and how your coping and other people without really high grades and how they are as im really stuck deciding

    i got an A in double science, and I'm currently doing chemistry and it's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. But I have a pretty **** teacher who makes me dislike chem, if u have good teachers it makes a huge difference, I loved chemistry at GCSE and now I hate it.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
