in science (for AQA anyway) you have to be super specific, like the markscheme is looking for specific phrases and words.

Is Alevel science better for questions?

Hey I do AQA A Level Biology so I can only speak for this subject and this exam board, it might be different with others. But A Level Bio with AQA is more demanding than GCSE in terms of how specific you have to be in my opinion. The good thing is it's a lot easier to get used to the types of things they want you to say and learn from going through and marking papers than it was at GCSE.

I do Chemistry AQA A level and yes, the mark schemes require very specific wording, but the questions get quite repetitive after a while so it's really easy to just remember it once you've done loads of exam questions and practice papers.
