Hi guys, am considering a level rs for edexcel, really love the subject and am predicted all 9s across my subjects. Is the a level really hard? Ive heard it's a jump up but is it manageable and is the workload bad or good? Also, is it decently respected? Thanks

The content is interesting in my opinion. However, there are so many different topics so the workload is big but it is manageable if you keep up with it. I mostly chose the subject as i really loved it at GCSE and I really do not regret choosing it. Have a look at the specification and if you think you will be able to keep up with the workload go for it! I promise you it's an amazing subject and it really helps you think about things. The only bad things I have heard about it are from the people that have dropped out on the course - whilst they enjoyed it, they found that the content was too much. If you are able to deal with that then I'm sure you will love the course.

Thanks a lot, looked at the spec and resources and it really looks fascinating! My only worry is how hard it is to get an A star, the grade boundaries looked insane when i looked at the 2018 ones .223/240 ums! What are your thought, i originally though the markers must be decently lenient if the boundaries are so high but idk, what od you think, will it be that hard to get a A star?

I wouldn't be able to answer this properly as I haven't yet sat an official exam. However, my teacher who is an edexcel examiner does say that the examiners are often quite lenient and in my college there is a very low fail rate. We have read some example essays that have been marked by examiners and I would say it was very surprising how highly some scored - as long as you put the right content in you will score good marks. I've been getting really high As even after walking out of the exam feeling rubbish about it. It's worth asking around especially people who have already got their A-level in RS. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them but definitely get a few different people's opinions!
