    Hi, i am quite nervous as to how i should approach my A-Levels. Teachers say its a very giant leap from GCSEs so Is it worth doing? And what are the benefits of it?

    In terms of content difficult I didn't find it that much of a leap, apart from physics. But the workload is a lot, considering you will probably have two teachers for each subject, don't be put off by being set a large about of work by each teacher at a time. This was often the case and we were given long periods of time to complete large amounts of work, try to stay on top or it gets too much.

    Don't worry though, everyone thinks it's going to be a giant leap, you are eased in at first, as long as you work hard it will be fine, sixth form so far has been the best part of my school career.
