    the main difference is I had to do languages and my school made me do a bunch of heavy coursework art subjects at GCSE, which is super hard work. In a level I can do stuff like take subjects like sciences, economics, maths, basically common sense subjects and not really work as hard and still be fine since I'm not expected to take as many a levels as gcses.

    Yeah I get where you're coming from. I'm currently doing my GCSE's right now, and my A - Levels are Further Maths, Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and I can already tell (as many of my teachers have told me) that A - Levels will be much easier for me.

    I like things to be complicated, usually perhaps more than they are, so I sometimes don't get the "blindingly easy" things that GCSE's present in some arbitrary way. In A - Levels I can do things I enjoy and I'm good at, and probably actually being challenged as an individual for once xD

    I think I get you as well haha. In GCSEs you tend to have to regurgitate facts (with maybe some subject exceptions)
    I've heard at A level there's more understanding, personally I find learning things a whole lot easier if I understand it rather than be forced to just learn them 'because' they happen.

    Only time will tell! Nearly there 😁
