I got a 77 in science, obviously I got the entry requirements but do you think I’ll be okay with chem a level?

Have you got a breakdown of how well you did in chemistry specifically? That may provide some insight.

2 of my friends got 66 in combined science, one got a C and the other got a B in A-Level chemistry. You'll be fine, your grades are better anyhow so as long as you speak up and ask for help where you need it you'll be okay

Nice, I did AQA as well. As to improve your grades, I suggest using CGP revision guides, they are really useful revisions guides that give detailed notes and explanations. Other than that, also check out freesciencelessons and Primrose Kitten on YouTube, those revision videos are really really good, since you are doing double combined higher so I suggest to make sure if you do want to buy the CGP revision guides, make sure it is for your exam board AQA and it has 'Combined Science: Trilogy Higher Level' on the front cover or something similar to that. And always do practice questions from past papers if you can and also always come back to the topics that you revised for, usually if you don't revise something again for more than a week then your memory of the revisions that you did would decrease by quite a lot, hence always come back and make sure you understand each topic throughly.

Hey, I am very glad that you find the CGP revision guides really helpful! Yes they do and personally they are one of my favourite and also the best GCSE Science revision guides! It contains all the crucial points that you need to know and gives easy-to-understand explanations. Also physicsandmathstutor is another great website that you can use to do practice questions(I forgot to mention it last time lol), personally I haven't used them for GCSE practice before but there are GCSE Science revision questions for AQA on there, if you see any questions that are for Triple students only, just ignore them and do the questions for Double. No problem at all and do spend your time equally between all three subjects and make sure to do as many practice questions as you can, I am sure you will get 7/7 and above! Best of luck!
