    For me personally, was how the exam questions awarded marks. Mark schemes could just suddenly change over the course of a year for the exact same question. You had to write down so much information just to make sure you could get the marks.

    There's always something you could be doing. Even when you don't have homework or any exams coming up (which is rare) you're still expected to be revising everyday.

    Remembering all the stuff you've learnt. One topic at a level feels like it is bigger than the entirety of a GCSE.
    Being tired all the time, doing 4 a levels and the EPQ I have barely any frees and work in the ones I do have. So I'm working every single period. Then I come home and I'm too tired to do anything. I have to have naps before I can work again.
    Having to constantly revise because I'm scared that at the end of the year I won't have time.
    The workload. Doing 4 essay based subjects and having 2 teachers for all but one of my subjects, I can sometimes get 3 essays a week. Haha.
    I love a levels though, I'm a nerd.
