I do OCR for both
The maths isn't that bad
Theres more maths in bio than chem
But it's easy and if it's not dw you'll go over it in class
Is it hard to get an A*?

Is the maths like GCSE maths or does it overlap with A level maths?

no they don't have too much maths. maths is one of those things you can't really avoid.

GCSE
But there is a few harder things
Not "a-level" level hard
Do you have any tips on how to get an A* at a level?

I take OCR chemistry. I also do maths but I wouldn't say that it's been any more helpful to do maths. It's barely harder than gcse so you're unlikely to struggle and often a 6th form will run a maths for chemistry class for students who don't take maths and are struggling with it in chemistry.

This works in bio and psychology (I got A* in both)
I'm still improving in chem tho
Blurt
Flashcards
Mind maps
Exam questions, exam questions, exam questions
Is it true that some of the information in the textbook is wrong? Also, what online resources do you use? Do you use the CGP books and what books did you get for all sciences? Is it possible to self teach A level? Thanks for answering all my questions.

Well I use 2 textbooks
The cgp one and the actual ones (which your school will tell you about so dw about prereading)
I dont use online resources but there are some good youtube channels, I've heard.
You can learn some of the content at home but half of it is too hard to go over yourself, which you'll learn in school
You're welcome
Thank you so much for your time and tips, good luck with your exams!

Is it true that chemrevise is a good website for A level chemistry and how do you stay up to date for your work? Also could you please send me the specification for both biology and chemistry as there are many other specifications that I'm not sure are the specification I'm doing. Thanks!
