It's a lot of work, I'm not gonna lie but it is (for the most part) interesting! It is a very content heavy subject and so you'll need to revise a lot and the exam technique takes some getting used to but if you work hard it is a great subject.

It really does depend on how fast you learn and your general understanding of things. I put in about 3 hours per week and got an A, I know people who dedicated 9+ hours per week and got a lower grade.

There is a lot of content - it's one of those where you don't realise it whilst you're learning it but it all builds up at the end! So long as you stay on top of it, I personally don't find it to be too much. What exam board are you going to be studying? I know for my exam board (OCR) that they've really upped the maths content, for example, so that's something to consider. I'm currently doing A2 and am predicted (and should hopefully achieve!) an A* - if you have any more questions, let me know
