    I take A level biology, chemistry and physics. and AS core maths.
    I really want to achieve an A* in chemistry and A's in the others, maybe an A in maths if I can.
    Is it really possible? I've been told I am in a crap situation because 3 sciences are tough and they are, but if I put in enough work, could I? Anyone have any experiences?

    Why not narrow down your subjects to 2 sciences and A level maths?

    I can't. Core maths is purely an AS. It isn't as mathematics. Different spec

    I used chemrevise for physics,
    biology-textbook
    physics- lots of videos-youtube i.e Dr Physics A, A level physics online

    It is very possible!
    I'm in my 1st year of university now but I did 5 AS's in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and French and I managed to get 5 A's.

    I then dropped french for A2 and ended up with 3 A*'s in Maths, Chemistry and Physics along with an A in Further Maths.

    Yes it's tough, yes it's hard work but when you get the grades at the end it's totally worth it!

    Lots of people are able to do it, so tell yourself that you can too!

    i be honest with you- he aint all it. He doesnt explain A2 concepts to the required detail. Also unlike most my mates, I've been killing my text book rather than diving into past papers straight away.

    Alright. I use both textbook and him for AS, and everything seems fine. I guess in A2 I'll stick to the textbook

    Be prepared to put in a lot of work, but if you are determined then that is a good source of motivation for you to work hard.

    We all wish you the best of luck ^^

    It is! it is hard, but possible. I have choosen those subjects for A levels and was a straight A student, even an A* in part. Triple science in combination with mathematics is very sophisticated, as it requires a good understanding for the sciences. And all of them goes into very detail! that means you have to be focused and persistent to get the details in your mind. Sometimes it is a bit easier when some lessons are teached in more than one science (just to think about the biochemistry stuff). But all in all, it means hard work.
