    I only did single science gcse, yet I need to take physics on for a level? Would you say this was a bad choice? The physics course that's running in sixth form (I forget the name), is basically physics in the environment.

    Could anyone offer any advice?

    -Thanks-

    I think you will fnd it very hard, but not impossible if you were prepared to do the extra work needed, what grade did you get, and why do you need to do it

    it is very possible to do so. the gcse teaches a lot of "fuzzy" science that doing an alevel is like working with a clean slate. if you do do it, i would advise you to do a bit of background reading (like stuff off the double/triple science physics syllabus that you havent come accross) in the summer before starting the course.

    I dunno, but that sounds like the Salters Horners course.

    You can do it, just work hard, things have a way of working out.

    Physics GCSE actually is very handy for A Level physics (shock horror) and i wouldn't say that A level physics is difficult at all. In fact i probably found GCSE physics more difficult in some respects, with all that AND/NOT/OR gate nonsense. If you do A level maths + mechanics, the first term or so of physics a level will be a joke....If you find GCSE physcis difficult, don't worry, i think that many people in our school felt the same, but have gone on to get *very* high marks at A level (one kid currently has 390/390 from the first 4 Phy modules !)
