I'm currently in year 12, and am doing English lit, history, French and Economics for AS. I was wondering if there is a big jump in terms of difficulty in these subjects between AS/A2? Some people say that A levels in general are super hard, but does that depend on which subjects you are taking?
Thank you in advance

I can speak for Eng and Econ - generally, yep
English - not as much, since you are using the skills you learnt/improved in Yr 12 and just applying them to coursework/ new texts etc. Tbh I find things more interesting, as I ca draw upon these skills that I didn't have at GCSE, and now we have much more meaningful discussions in class. Just by reading a new piece of writing, we can now easily identify and analyse without much effort.
Econ - many, many more diagrams, brace yourself. But content wise is not too difficult to wrap your head around, once you read it over and clarify stuff as you do. But there is now the added pressure of drawing upon your AS knowledge as your base, and building on it for A2.
Meh. You'll find out, in time
