    It’s a huge step up. As much as schools say you need to be independent learners and other bs like that, schools ultimately spoon feed because they need the grades. U realise how tough stuff is at uni

    A levels were a walk in the park compared to uni for me.

    GCSEs- A literal joke
    A levels- Put the required work in and you always get the top grades.
    Uni-have to work very hard on a consistent basis.

    Maths at A level: (probably the easiest A level to score 100 in if your mathematically decent).

    Maths at uni: (I do some maths modules and although conceptually it takes a while there is not alot of content and the exams qunstions essentially boil down to yes or no- work hard and you will do well.

    Physics at uni- Same as maths in difficulty tbh, but higher workload as labs and coursework are pretty dreadful.
