    i am considering doing bio, chem, and physics at a level.
    how big is the jump between gcse and a level?
    how hard is it to get a stars in each science subject? (i should get a* in every science at gcse but i do find it hard)
    realistically, i need a*a*a at a level for medicine, is this possible or likely for these subjects?
    how hard is each subject?

    Wait, so you want to do medicine?

    Are you considering to take maths at A level?

    Biology is quite content heavy but relatively easy to pass with A's
    Chemistry is moderately difficult but not impossible
    I'd say physics is the most difficult, avoid unless you have an A in maths GCSE

    A-level to GCSE is quite a big jump, you'll need to do quite a lot of work
    It's difficult to get A*'s, nobody will tell you different, but it depends entirely on you and how much effort you put in

    thanks! i have 7/8 (a/a* old grades) predicted for maths so i hope i could cope with physics. ngl though, i do find maths really difficult, so maybe it isnt the best option for me

    I'm sure you'll be fine with physics a-level if you're predicted high grades in maths, just make sure you're really hot on your vector calculations and your quadratics. As long as you put the work in you'll be fine
