    Hi guys I was just wondering if I could get some advice on if I should take A level maths. I'm a student who has just left school after gcses, I have a great passion for maths its just come after gcses really. I'm really interested in taking in forward I'm predicted a C but I will most likely come out with a B looking at unofficial mark schemes, I just really wanted to know whether you think I would be capable, my bored for a level maths would be AQA aswell thanks.

    I got an A in GCSE Maths and dropped out of AS Maths with a U, it's worth taking if you don't mind constantly revising. Which I cannot do. It's definitely a rewarding and respected A Level if you get it at a high grade.

    Honestly, I would only suggest those who got an A or A* in maths GCSE to do the A-level, it can be quite challenging at times.
    Unless you're completely sure you'll do constant revision from the start then I suppose a B should be ok and obviously anything lower than a B is a big no.
