    Okay so I know A levels are much harder than GCSEs but is A level chemistry really hard? Apparently the Salters one is really crap and is it very maths based? I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a C in maths because I'm not very good at it but I guess I can do calculations

    I don't know what course I'd like to do at uni maybe biomedical science? I'm planning on doing Biology, psychology, chemistry and media for AS Should I not do chemistry? I'm confused

    Sorry if this is really pointless

    Chemistry has 1) Alot of core knowledge to REMEMBER ( whats your memory like!!)
    2) That knowledge has to be applied to unfamiliar questions and scenarios.
    For example they may expect you to use knowledge of organic chemistry to answer questions on a new plastic discovered.
    3) The concepts in chemistry can be challenging ( probs most challenging out of the 3 sciences) such as energetics and complexes.
    I would advise you pick up an A level chem book at a library and sit down for 15 mins and just LOOK through it....see what you think.
    Good Luck
    I got Chemistry AS - A
    Chemistry A2 - B ( high B )
