    I think that's the best option, really. The idea of maths a-level is actually a lot worse than it is, and C1 involves a lot of re-hashing of GCSE, so it's reasonably easy. What module will you be doing with it?
    I think the firdt year i will be taking C1 and C2 alongside S1

    Well, I dropped physics a week after the final exam (in Year 12 you start A2 lessons for a month or so after AS exams), so I'm somewhat biased towards maths. If you enjoy maths, pick maths. If you don't enjoy maths, don't pick either. If you adore physics and have a good mathematical mind to back up your science, pick physics.

    Thanks. Ive looked into A level maths, and will probably pick that as an A level. Just waiting for results day now
    That's probably better. If you're not confident with maths then you can overcome it with practise quite easily I think. You could try to learn a little of C1 now (maybe not the new stuff like calculus, but the bits that were already in GCSE and are now just a little harder, like index laws and fractions).

    Ah, I didn't take statistics nor will I be in A2, but I wish you luck all the same. Practise past papers early, and don't be afraid to ask for help, and you'll be alright

    I enjoyed the content but I found it pretty difficult so I couldn't really be bothered to put in as much effort as I had done for maths and biology (media required no work at all because it's, well, media) when exam time came. Yes, I did OCR with the horrific G482 exam.

    I finished gcse, so I know C is a pass.
    But for A level I thought E was a pass.
