All A-Levels are harder than GCSE.The Sciences are all as hard as each other, some of the topics you will have covered at GCSE so the subject you had the highest GCSE grade in you might find easier. Thorough revision of them though should make life much easier for yourself.

thanks. these are all the subjects I'm doing best at (even though science I usually get 7s (still an a grade) but sometimes I slip into 6s (Bs) which I'm not happy about. I hope revision will help me secure higher grades

They're still good grades, you have a good chance of getting through them with secure revision. (I only know A-Level Chemistry is hard because I've studied that subject and there's a whole new syllabus so half of the stuff won't even make sense to you).

yeah chemistry is what I'm most nervous about since I don't enjoy it as much as the other subjects. What exam board did you do?

The exam board was AQA at GCSE but for some reason, changes to WJEC at A-Level.

I'm doing aqa bio and chem now too. Might change to OCR. I've heard WJEC isn't too bad, did you get a good grade?

I’m doing ALevel bio,chem and maths rn. I did AS physics but I had to drop it cause it was sooo difficult(it was interesting tho). Bio you need a good memory (it can be quite boring as well) and chem I find very easy (IMO).

I'm in Year 12. I dropped Chemistry a while ago because of how hard it was and it wasn't an ideal alternative to Physics (which was in another school)

A level chemistry is ****ing hard to be fair. I do the new spec aqa, id say the new spec is so much harder its well annoying. Time of flight is always a common question and it is so much more maths based. Biology is lots of content i do ocr a and its just so much you have to learn. Ngl, if you are doing chem, good maths skills really help, and also, for ocr a bio you have to choose the right resources and revise like from day 1 - keep making notes/ flashcards and keep making sure you know everything on the spec before the exam and done all the papers. For biology, tailoredtutors is good. For chemistry, chemrevise is sick

I don't think you have a choice? Don't you have to just do whatever exam board your school/college chooses? If not, then you are lucky.
