last year of a levels  (yayy :D) am doing all three sciences, a level is definately harder than GCSE you have to revise way more even though only three or four subjects :/ but its more interesting than GCSE =)

You can do art at A-level even if you don't do it at GCSE- one of my friends are doing it at A-level when they didn't do it as an option all they had to do was make a portfolio showcasing some art work they have done and write a letter saying why they want to take art. :) Next year is going to be my first year of A-levels- I can't wait to move schools (and I get a moped as its cheaper than a bus pass in the long run) I'm taking sociology, psychology, mathematics and applied ICT :D

I do:

-English lit




-General studies

For AS :)

I do find it hard, especially with biology (i.e I'm hoping to get an E in that haha!), as there is so much more work than at GCSE. Also I find that I miss the variety that I had at GCSE, going from 11 subjects to 5 is a huuuge change!

Just get a couple of revision books and read them over the summer :) hopefully the weather brightens up so you can do it down the beach! Haha :) ***
