    Hi,
    If you are reasonably intelligent you'll be fine.
    This was my classes final A Level grades:
    1- A* (me lol)
    1- A
    2- B
    5- C
    1- D
    This was from a bad comprehensive.
    My class went from A/B's at AS to B's/C's at A2. Because we did political ideologies at A2, which is tricker than US government which most do at A2. All pretty much do UK government/politics at AS.

    So you should look into what modules your school offers. But me and my good friend got A* and A respectively and we were really the only fairly smart ones in the class. So you'll get an A/A* if you're somewhat clever, it isn't that hard.

    I’m doing AS and i love it! There’s a lot of content but it isn’t hard to be honest, as long as you make notes as you go along you’ll be fine! Probably my easiest as level

    Is Andrew heywood the way to go? Most people in my A2 class literally are trying to memorise the whole book.

    I literally just used Heywood for A2, with a few other notes for bits of the spec he misses out. I got 200/200 at A2 so yeh I would recommend it.
