    How is A-levels easier than GCSE's?
    Ive looked at some A-level pastpapers are they're just made of defining keywords and just longer marks for explain questions...

    I don't know what grades you will be on. The second GCSE is more difficult, but with some hard work you will be able to increase your grades.

    This may change slightly between boards, but in general you take B1, C1, P1 and a controlled assessment for your first GCSE, then you take B2, C2, P2 and a controlled assessment for your second GCSE. Your grades get combined at the end to give you a double GCSE.

    Yes, GCSE is easier but A-level triple science is much more fun and interesting.

    Yes, I was surprised these are easier than ours(OCR). Still, there are only about 2 marks for definitions in this paper. There are also around 15-25 marks for standard answers to questions eg. photochemical homolytic free radical substitution reactions or Maxwell Boltzmann distributions, where you can write the same answer each time.
    The rest of the marks (the difficult ones) come from either working out stuff or remembering loads of reagents and mechanisms.
