    Hi,
    I've been doing my as for maths, bio, Chem and physics for 8 weeks or so and it is SUCH A HUGE STEP UP FROM GCSES.
    I did really well in my GCSEs - 5A* for maths, triple science and re and 5A for all other subjects like history/English.

    .......

    All of a sudden I'm struggling to pass my tests and I'm struggling to keep up with the mass volume off biology content. I'm also scared because I was informed that even though we've probably covered twice the content of GCSEs, we're only about 5% into a levels.

    Maths and chemistry at the moment is doable (although I heard chemistry gets super tough), physics is really hard to understand I seem to be doing no work and don't know how to revise physics and biology is just taking too much time.

    Does the subjects get more interesting in A2 and easier? Is there a way to cope with the work without burning out (as I have done)?

    I want to study dentistry and if I'm struggling with T his much biology content I don't know how I'll do in uni...

    Thanks!

    It might get interesting for you at A2. It probably won't get easier if you cannot cope right now.
