Well for AQA, which is what i do, they definitely ask you questions from the AS syllabus, because they expect us to know it. I assume OCR would be the same

I would've kept your AS stuff as especially for unit 4 chem with all the organic chemistry you kinda have to go over your AS again.
For Biology (I did AQA) I found that you were learning new things and building upon AS knowledge however in the exams they did throw in the odd AS question and especially in unit 5 AS knowledge is essential as they will give u a synoptic essay, don't know about OCR but I'm guessing it's a synoptic paper aswell.

But yeah in terms of the jump, it's definitely 10× bigger when going from GCSE-AS than from AS-A2 which wasn't really a jump imo especially if you did well in your AS.
