    Hi Tom,

    If you are prepared to put the work in then you should be fine. Seeing that you got an A* in GCSE maths you are more than capable and have a firm understanding of basic mathematical and algebraic concepts. This should work in your favour. Just put your head down, work hard and ask questions if you are stuck. Also, don't judge how difficult Maths will be just by looking at the past papers - you haven't even learnt the stuff so obviously it will look like mumbo jumbo to you.

    You should be ok with C1 and C2, but it is usually the applied modules (M1, S1 or D1) which people usually struggle with.

    After you attempt AS Maths I am sure you will like it (if you try hard) and then you may even do it for A2.

    All the best.
    It's just A-Level maths has a reputation for being notoriously difficult, just wasn't sure whether only the best of the best should take it

    I'd say further maths is for the best of the best. Just A Level maths is for the best.
