I found the jump fine and not that bad as some people say.

Except for French, i found the gap very big which led to me dropping it

So far, I'd say that it's not bad, although the work load is a bit tooooooo much.

Good choice!
I mean, unless you are amazing at languages/need language A-levels, don't do them!
Talking from experience here. I did AS German(predicted A) and got **** at the end, even after checking all my cases are correct, using difficult complex sentences - weighting up both sides and all that rubbish.

...but then again, probably it's because I didn't use all those "even more difficult" structures like subjunctive/passive/imperatives in my speaking/writings. :rolleyes:

I'm finding the jump and the workload fine.... haven't noticed a jump in English lit, Pyschology I've never done before but it seems quite simple, Biology just seems like GCSE all over again in so much detail I don't think I'm going to remember it so I look over my notes everyday and I'm actually loving the fact I can do Chemistry! Been getting homework for bio and chem everyday that I do in my frees so yeah, the jump seems ok...
Edit: It's a bit annoying my Chemistry teacher keeps saying if you can't do XYZ drop Chemistry... super encouraging!
