I'm undecided about what to take for A levels...
Currently, i am planning on taking:
Maths
Further Maths
Chemistry
Physics.

How hard are these subjects? Would you advise me to take them?

Thanks

Maths and Further don't have coursework.

Chemistry has a practical examination, not coursework as such.

Physics does have coursework.

*On the syllabuses they use at my school anyway.

(Which are AQA for both Maths, OCR for Chemistry and Physics)

Yes, but only a small amount on the modules C3, Numerical Methods and Differential Equations.

i don't study any of them but my friends do and some have dropped from those lessons, claiming its too hard but those who did well at the subjects at GCSE did well at A levels..

if that's what you want to do, then i would say go for it, but A levels are a lot harder, keep that in mind

if you're good at science and maths then do them

alternatively, if you arent that good but plan on trying hard then do them.

i didnt think they were much of a step up.. only further maths requires a proper aptitude for the subject

They're easy enough, if you're reasonably decent at them.

you have to have a real good brain and determination to do them...they are good a levels though and good luck...depending on the exam board you are with check out the specifications of the subjects to see what you'll have to do and whether you'll like doing the course.
