    So I have an A in gcse maths and B in GCSE chemistry

    I have chosen to do these in college but so many people are scaring me as they say it's so difficult. I slacked a bit in chemistry reason being I only got a B.... My chemistry teacher told me don't do chemistry if you only get a B at gcse as you'll find it so difficult at as. So is anybody doing chemistry or/and maths at AS and how do you find it?

    at the start of AS chem you will get told that most of what you learn at GCSE is a lie. If you can get your head around that and the rather tricky conceptual things in it, you will probably be alright. You should be alright doing maths with an A at GCSE.

    I got a b in chemistry, now im getting better grades than most people who a*'s at gcse, your teacher doesn't know what she's talking about!

    Im not gonna lie, chemistry A level is really quite hard, and even more so if you dont enjoy it. It is true what they say, the jump in chemistry from GCSE to A level is enormous.
