    So im starting my A levels this week and have chosen Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics as my options. These were my best subjects at GCSEs and I also enjoy them.
    Does anyone have any tips for me? Im mostly scared of the work load and would love to know how difficult it is.


    Having done that this year I'd say the workload is bearable. I ended up spending more time on global perspectives' coursework. Make sure you know the mark schemes and revise the theory for bio. Maths and physics should be alright if you're good at them just do past papers and exercises. I found chemistry to be the hardest so I don't think I can give you much advice on that. I think i failed because I wasn't able to apply the concepts and I didn't perfection my exam technique but I ended up with a high B but I'll have to work a lot next year towards achieving an A. My grades were AABB (other b in biology)

    I'm doing the same subjects as you, along with psychology for my fifth A-level. I am starting sixth form next week and I am incredibly nervous about the work load involved.

    Doing the same subjects as you but i will be doing economics instead of physics and i will be starting sixth form in 2 days !
