Depends on what people mean. It might be easy to pass everything without doing much work but I’m pretty sure it’s not easy to get straight A*s in everything.
I think A-Levels suit people who are really good at a some subjects rather than people who are broadly good at everything. Some people at my school who were not particularly high achievers really thrived in A-Level because they picked subjects which were right for them, I guess because they knew what they were good at, because they knew what they were bad at…
I preferred the variety of subjects at GCSE, I actually liked every subject I did. Then made some absolutely terrible choices at A-Level and had to do a shitload of resits before I got to uni. Basically had a ‘gap yah’ which was devoted to resits, it was ridiculous and I felt like an idiot but I did well in the end so I don’t care.
I found A-Levels harder than uni tbh.
