Taking A-Level Chemistry for A-Levels. I don't particularly enjoy it in GCSE, only taking it because it's necessary for some of the fields of work I'm interested in. Would you say it gets more interesting or fun at A-Levels? I get that there's going to be more content than at GCSE, but is that content actually fun since I don't enjoy stuff like quantative chemistry and the rate of reaction shebang. On the other hand I do kind of enjoy the reactions and the bonding of chemicals and stuff. I enjoyed learning about the uses and interactions between elements.

Depends which exam board. I'm with AQA and personally, I don't find it interesting at all - there's so much memorisation. Rates of reaction is quite a chunky topic. OCR tends to be harder (according to my teacher) and has more about bonding than AQA.
