I'm not sure I want to keep my options open
Well you're not giving me much to work with.

I would say there are plenty of options for you outside of maths but if you want to do it i would suggest you forget about asking ppl on TSR on how to do maths and try to work your way up to an A. Do any questions in topics you find hard, google them and do all the past papers available. Work your way to an A.

I'm going to be brutally honest, a C in GCSE maths isnt good enough for an A level student and Maths is often needed for a range of careers from STEM degrees to finance. There isnt a need for Maths in many degrees too, but you would often be at a disadvantage without it.

lool thanks, the hard work paid off!

i got a*s in bengali, eng lit and history
As in maths (sad given i want to do it at uni lol), bio, chem, physics, computing (2 ums from a* lol) and eng lang
You can still do maths at uni. When I was at sixth form, quite a few people with A* at gcse struggled hugely in A Level maths and myself and others who only had As did exceptionally well at A Level maths. Obviously, how hard you worked at GCSE can make a difference to whether this is likely to happen.

Hi, what did you guys get in GCSE's, I'm trying to motivate myself to get top grades.
1.5A*(RE half course and ICT full course), 6A, 1B

I did less GCSEs than most due to moving country and having to do new courses, so only doing year 11 in the UK

Have to disagree somewhat here, Maths is used in many degrees including:

Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geography, Psychology, Finance, Economics plus other more specific degrees.

Someone I know got a B at GCSE then he got an A at a level
Hence why colleges still allow people to take A Level Maths even if they got a B although the requirement is an A - and you have to put it into context - was he 1 or 2 marks away from an A? That happens a lot. But a C isn't good enough hence why it isn't allowed.

Are you deliberately being stupid? read the whole post.

Many dont need maths too.

How did you even do that?
I don't even know for most of them. I wish it worked the same for A levels

For maths there is a CD/DVD that I can't remember the name of, but it was literally someone going through every kind of question and talking the answers through step by step and that was the only reason I got an A in maths.

History A* was due to a good paper that year, because usually History is hard.

The rest I just tried hard haha

-.- No.

I took further Maths at GCSE and it was incredibly difficult.

Further Maths at A Level is VERY hard.
