    Maths is piss for As-Level. Its not too big a step up from GCSE so you should be fine with the Maths, especially since they're gonna make it easier from next year. Biology is weird, quite tricky in places and takes some grasping. Chemistry is difficult or easy depending on how your mind works. If you're good at Chemistry and can think for yourslef, the exams will be a doddle but if not, you may struggle a lot and will have to put a lot of extra work into it.

    My best friend does Biology, Chemistry, Maths, History and Physics, and I don't think she's found the workload too bad. The two sciences and Maths complement one another, because some of the skills involved are transferable, and History will encourage you to use your logic skills from your other subjects, and apply them in a different context, whilst also learning to write at length about specific topics.

    The A* grade is going to be introduced for next year's AS takers. This means that exams' UMS marks will be scaled up higher in turn making it slightly easier.

    Just out of interest, what GCSE grades are you predicted. If you're predicted 4/5 or more A*'s, you'll be fine, especially if you'll get A*'s in these poarticular subjects.
