    GCSE physics is lovely, although boring at times
    A Level physics is difficult, but on a new level of interesting-ness. (well, other than waves but ygm)
    This is in my one term of experience anyway, it may change! :lol:

    Nice! Don't think like that, you do have a chance for Cambridge. What would you insure if Warwick were your firm?
    Ah well, what's done is done
    I'm not too sure really, but it's out of Bath & Nottingham since I don't really wanna stay in London for uni. I'll probably decide after visiting both campuses

    Oh both good choices either way. Is it because you already live in London? Have you received any offers yet?

    oh wow is it really that hard?
    Trust me A level is not a walk in the park like GCSE you need to revise from the start. Exam questions are complex, very wordy and difficult so require tons of revision it's not like GCSE where you can get a good grade with no revision. Be prepared for a U grade for you don't revise and I am not exaggerating this it is the truth.
