    Im not sure but s1 and d1 might suit you. Its akk uobto you though
    Most UK universities don't even ask for A* in maths for any course, let alone the one I want to do I so I'm not overly worried. I don't even need it at A-Level for what I want to do but I figured it would give me important skills.

    That's very interesting. Youre interests really varied .....
    I wanted to be a wwe prowrestler when i was small but now i really dont know what to become.
    This is just a genaral question but which do you think is tough. Step 3 or imo ?
    IMO... let's just that it takes over 4 hours for me to solve one of those questions sometimes.

    As I said the shock at the start of a Mathematics degree is very common. I warn my own students about it so they can deal better with it when/if it comes.

    All the best.
    Any way to lessen the jump/shock in difficulty before we start university or is that something we will just deal with once we're there?

    I would imagine that preparation above the level of the standard A level syllabi, and questions from STEP/IMO may be beneficial

    After 3 weeks I switched to straight maths (I could not stand computing)
    Why TeeEm?
    *I did Computing, so of course I'm naturally curious.

    ... because I did not enjoy Pure maths.
    This as well.

    There is nothing wrong with computing, I truly admire you.
    Just was not for me (I guess I did not have a real interest in it/ we are talking 30 years ago)

    The level of abstractions in Maths is higher and more general though than Computing :erm:

    How to know whether you have the potential to be good at Maths?
    Commitment. The more effort and time you put in Mathematics the better you will become. Maths is just another skill.
