    Is French impossible to get an A* in? I've heard it is but really enjoy the subject.

    Is gov. pol a lot of hours? Also, is it hard to achieve an A/A* grade?

    Is maths a massive step up? Same Q re. A/A*...

    Can you also give any info on any of the above you can, even if you can't answer the questions themselves

    Thanks!

    Maths is actually 'easy' to get an A/A* in once it clicks, until then it may not come as easy... (easy meaning that it just takes hard work to put it in)

    It takes hours of practice, yes, though the content itself doesn't take that much time or memory. Practice until it makes sense and you can tackle problems with ease.. you can get to that stage

    It is not a huuuge step up from GCSE to AS, the real difficulty is in A2 but even then it's not impossible.

    I wouldn't say politics is a lot of work. It depends how good your teacher is etc. I personally love it.

    I find Politics to be one of those subjects that if you enjoy it, it is easy. But if you don't have an interest, it can be a pain in the arse.
