GCSE to A level jump?Watch this thread
Which is probably the best way to think about it. The jump between KS3 and GCSE, and how that felt, it will be (relatively) similar to that.
Independent work is definitely more expected, so get ready for that. You're taking fewer subjects so you will be expected to be able to commit more time to each one. So again, it's hard to say how much more work there will be because teachers may give you less work than others, because they expect you to be doing more of your own research etc.
currently in year 11 and I am going on to do a levels next year, and a lot of people say that there is a BIG leap from GCSEs to A levels, but how bug is the leap? How much of an increase in homework is there and what are the lessons like? Thanks to anyone that replies.
