It's hard if you don't work hard. The step up from GCSE to A-Level is HUGE. I didn't belive people when they told me that. So I had to learn the hard way; If you don't work your **** off, you're not going to get A's.
Unit 1 is quite 'easy' ~ Building on from GCSE stuff. But beware of the applications questions, there are a lot of How science work questions in the exam. You might think you've done well, but the answer scheme might say something different.

On the positive side, Biology is VERY enjoyable. Some of the things you learn is just so fascinating. I LOVE Biology! GCSE's were a breeze, you can do some revision the night before and still ger A*'s. But with A-Level, if you put the work in, you can do really well!

I hope you get great results for your GCSE's. Good Luck<3 And Enjoy A-level Biology :) It's a good subject and I reccomend that you pick it!

All that i want to say is that , A level biology is a BIG step to take from GCSE.

if you find GCSE hard to handle and boring, then you would find Alevel extremely hard to handle and sick  of .

But on the positive side, biology has so far being on of the most enjoyable subjects i have studied...if you enjoy discovering new things ie about the genetic makeup of organism

If you are a very inquisitive person who is willing to do some extra reading/research about topics related to your work/contemporary issues of biology today , then this is something you will certainly enjoy.

Well my sister got an A* at GCSE and so she decided to take A level she worked her **** off and only got a C. So it is a lot different to GCSE but she loved when she was doing it. I am studying at GCSE at is my favourite subject so as long as you realise that it is a lot different from GCSE then my guess is you will be fine :) x
