While I did comp sci for GCSE, i don't think its that hard in a-level.
The theory side isn't that bad, sure theres alot of work to get through but the actual topics aren't that hard to understand - especially with all the resources you can have like seneca, issac , pmt ect.
I would say that the programming side of it is tricky as if you have less experience with coding, you defo will find it hard - especially for the NEA. That being said, i took it for GCSE and i still struggle with programming lol.
