I am starting my A levels in september (2021) and am taking maths, physics and chemistry. At GCSE I achieved (predicted grades but I did work hard) 9s in all three subjects. I am really going to work hard in my A levels and am kind of aiming for 3 A stars, or at least two A’s and one A star. Do I have high expectations or is this possible if I work hard?

Hi, I am in Year 12,studying maths, physics, chemistry and geography. A levels are harder than GCSE obviously (congrats on your results they are really good). Wanting A’s is really good and there is no reason why you can’t achieve this, the language and content is obviously harder but I would talk your subject teachers as they will be able to help you get the higher grades as well

hi, i'm at the end of year 12 now and set myself goals like yours, with similar GCSE grades. i found that you shouldn't be disappointed if you begin with Bs and Cs (although i do humanities my science friends say the same!) and by the end of year 12 i've found myself getting the grades i wanted at the beginning. a levels are a lot harder, but there's no harm in setting goals! just don't feel pressured to get all A*s throughout year 12

This is definitely possible if you put in the effort ! I am at the end of Y12 now and do Chemistry, Physics , Maths and Further Maths ; with these kind of subjects you have to put in the effort to see the results definitely. I made the mistake of being complacent going in with 9s expecting it to be easy but it’s nothing like GCSEs. I got many Ds and Cs before i started getting my As so never be disheartened by whats on the paper just keep at it

Hey! I’m going into my second year at college in September and I’ve just got my formal assessments back. I got 2 As and an A*. I put in all the effort I could and got the results, so yes it is possible! But remember grades are not everything. If you get a bad result thats okay. Look at where you went wrong and just keep on trying. That’s all you can do. Good luck!
