    If you find it interesting, it doesn't seem really hard. However, it will be quite the challenge to still remember all the content after 2 years...

    It is in way more depth. You know in B2 you have the nice small paragraph about the organelles inside a cell? At A-level it's 6 pages and you need to know the structure of the organelles, the function of the organelles and how the structure is related to the feature. But then you're also introduced to different types of cells - eukaryotic (humans/plants etc.) and prokaryotic cells (bacteria and viruses). So in reality there's more than 6 pages just for that very small topic.

    It seems as if A-level biology is heavily assessed by both recall and application - so you've got really hard content applied to complex situations you may not have come across, with questions sometimes being really disgustingly worded.

    But if you concentrate in class, make decent notes at home and do some independent study - you'll do fine!
