    I am currently finishing my 1st year of sixth form studying Double ICT and Product Design. I will get a Distinction in ICT and a C in DT.

    I feel I have made the wrong A-Level choice and would like to switch next year to Maths and Physics, but am not sure if I will fail these?

    At GCSE, I have a B in Maths and 2 C's in Science. I think I could probably do well if I revise a lot, but am not sure if this is enough? How hard exactly is it? Will I do alright with a few hours revision per week or is this not enough?

    You'll find it difficult and you'd really have to work, but I don't know how much work you did to get those GCSE grades so I can't say how much more.

    I did a 3 alevel equivalent btec in applied science and alevel maths in my first year. Then in my second year at sixth form I took up alevel physics on top of that, which i did in one year.

    I have achieved D*D*D* in my btec. I am hoping for A*/A for my maths and physics (fingers crossed for results day). I have to say it was very tough, especially towards the end when exams are less than a month away.

    It certainly is possible if you are dedicated. If you want it bad enough, you can do it.
