    5 A levels is a lot. How do you know you will cope?

    Go to the exam board and look at the subject specifications to see what exams there are.

    Chemistry and Biology you will need to sort out the practicals.

    You also need to find an exam centre.

    it would be very expensive and difficult. A levels like bio and chem have coursework and practical assements that you would have to find a centre for and pay for
    Isn't 5A levels a bit too much? Not to sound discouraging just a bit concerned.

    It's difficult to find an exam centre for practical exams, so chemistry and biology would be very expensive

    I'm not planning on doing all of them, im still trying to figure out which a level is suitable for me. I got all A* in all my gcse and couldn't decide if should study BA or BS degree when I get to university so that's why I'm trying to pull as many opinions as I possibly can
