    How is it difficulty wise? I'm in Year 11 atm doing the Higher Tier AQA course and tbh it's pretty easy. A lot of it is just working out stuff, and even then they give you the formula. How is it compared to GCSE? I'm defineitly taking it at A-level, just wondering how it is.

    There is a large jump of difficulty from gcse to a-levels. but other than that,as long as you like it,its not too hard.

    You might find it useful to speak to the Physics Department at your school or some of the current A-level students. CGP publish a book entitled 'Get Ahead in AS Physics'. It is designed to bridge the gap between GCSE and A-level. There are titles in the series for the other sciences and Maths as well. This should help you to be prepared if you decide to take the subject further. Most schools also set minimum entry requirements. This is usually at least a grade B in Science and Maths.
