    I will be taking biology, psychology, and English Lit for A2 but i am thinking of doing a one year intensive course in Chemistry along side my three. Could it be managed? or would it be too much to handle. I would be looking for 4 As in the end. Cheers

    It's really up to you, you don't need TSR to make your decisions. We don't know how you work, but saying that judging from your other threads stating you can't revise etc. maybe it isn't a good idea, think realistically if you can't handle the work at AS by now, you're giving yourself a very hard time next year.

    Probably a bad idea, under physics chemistry is probably the hardest A level to achieve, and it's definitely the one with the biggest workload

    You could do the one year intensive in chemistry in your gap year?
    I think that's your best bet, as doing a one year intensive along with your A2's could jepordize your chances of achieving your full potential in your A2'S. One year intensive requires alot of hard work. I'd say its better if you carry on with your A2's, take a gap year and in that year enroll for a one year intensive in chemistry, this is what i am going to do after failing to get a good enough grade at AS, i will be doing AS and A2 chem as a private candidate in my gap year again.
