    I take bio , chem , maths , physics and im not finding them too hard.Tbh some things are hard to grasp but after a day or two I seem to get it. I came out with AAAA in my mocks , over 90% except bio 65% ( bio is the only subject i seem to have to work harder to grasp) . The weird thing is that I've found gcse absolutely horrible especially english and humanities , i came out with AABBBBBBBBCC at my gcse , i guess my gcse were a wake up call to change my revision and start to care about my education - I never imagined myself to go sixth form , my main plan for year 11 was to go college to do a btec beacuse i was 100 % sure ill mess up my gcse .

    thats all

    Ahah don’t worry I’m the exact same , I do maths chemistry and biology (plus EPQ) and I got 90% in bio, and 100% in both maths and chemistry. I think it’s probably bc teachers are a little better plus maturity(which a lot of people lack in GCSEs!). I’m so glad for you and keep working hard!!

    It's not that hard, especially with non-subjective subjects. When you know it, you know it.

    tell me your secret for biology , i went from 85% to 60-70% in bio . I mainly mess up at graph questions. Any tips would be nice. I'm going to do an EPQ aswell smh I am forced to do it

    i always though maths and sciences were the hardest subject. Anyways , i would never be able to tolerate doing A level history with the crazy essays so i agree

    AS is basically the same level as GCSEs (level 2) and then A2 is harder (not impossible though if you put the effort in and it's something you enjoy, and is your thing). BUT now with a lot of a levels the AS marks don't count toward the whole A-Lelvel so you have to do both years content at the end of year 2, so it's a fair bit harder
