    If you hated chemistry GCSE then don't take it at A level.

    I just completed my first year of it and can tell you its hard! I would say its harder than biology but from the sounds of it, it isn't as hard as physics. If you don't like it don't take it!!! It mainly focusses on moles and equations to give a brief overview. I have been looking over my A2 book and that seems so much harder than my first year so only take it if u need it for your desired degree

    If you hated it at GCSE don't do it. If you don't like it, it's very unlikely you will be able to study effectively.
