    If you follow past papers back c. 10 years, attempt the questions and learn how to approach the questions you can't do, you're more or less guaranteed a decent grade.A lot of questions come up time and time again with different numbers/variables/etc. so knowing how to do all of the questions previously set is very useful.

    They will put new stuff on the exam (often interesting twists to make conventional questions a little more difficult) and they do depend on some level of mathematical ability but for most, at least some are pretty manageable and even if you get all of them wrong, unless the exam paper you're sitting is particularly mean, you can still get a pretty good grade.

    An A at GCSE is a decent start for A-Level. My teacher used to say that in some sense A-Level was easier because you could be sure exactly what topics would come up (pretty much all of them) whereas for GCSE, it is a guessing game.

    I didn't unfortunately as my sixth form didn't offer it. I almost picked a different sixth form just so I could do FM but backed out because I was familiar with the teachers/students at my sixth form of choice.

    i am predicted an A for GCSE maths this year, although maths doesn't come naturally to me, How difficult would A level maths be for me? I have asked my maths teacher and he said it was piss soo....
    I enjoyed GCSE Maths and came out with an A as well as a B in Further Maths so I started AS Maths but I hated it... I dropped it after 2/3 months but I think it was based on the teacher not subject itself. I'd advise trying it - if you don't like it you can always change

    I think I found the content hard to understand because of the teacher but I reckon with a good teacher it shouldnt be too bad
