    Is it really that hard? You're making me worried now since I've picked it for next year
    It entirely depends on you, really. Forget GCSE maths, only people with A*s at GCSE were allowed to take F.Maths at my school and a third of them are struggling (there are only 6 in my class). One is probably burdened by a language barrier (she speaks English fine, but she's an exchange student from Norway and might not have the best grasp of mathematical terms.). The other one, however, is finding things quite difficult, most notably the speed of it (to be fair our school only gave us one extra lesson for F.Maths, otherwise we have the same timetable as regular maths). Then there's a sort of middle ground in this class, with people who find some topics easy, others slightly difficult, and then there's myself and one other who don't really struggle :mmm: I would argue that the reason we don't struggle is that we learn the topics out of class, unlike that second person I mentioned, who whines that teachers don't explain things fully and to his liking exactly, which is a ridiculous expectation given our time restrictions.

    (We're doing AS Maths and F.Maths in Year 12, A2 for both in Year 13, unlike many schools.)

    tl;dr - take f.maths and if you can't deal, drop it, if you can

    Hi! I'm doing As Level AQA Maths (C1,C2 & S1), AQA History (Tsarist Russia & Peter the Great), CIE Thinking Skills (mandatory), CIE Chemistry and Biology.
    Seeing as this forum specializes in Tsarist Russia, and seeing as I need help in that area, I was wondering whether anyone will be willing to oblige?
    Firstly, I am supremely confused with all the rebel groups, their dates, movements, motives and where they're descended from or who leads them! Is there an easy way to remember them or a good website or anything I could check out?

    Thanks!
    is that sarcasm? do we specialise in tsarist Russia? welcome btw! what would you like to go into?

    That's a good way of putting it...

    I'm mainly struggling due to the speed and the fact it's A2 work and I'm kind of busy with chem/physics coursework outside of lessons atm

    Trying to put it right this holiday I think will help me greatly.

    Tbf, AS Maths and Further is really easy to do compared to Maths A2 in a year, but even that shouldn't be *too* hard if you're considering further maths.

    Alright
    We do 2 units in AS (I'm doing D1 and M1) and 4 units in A2 (FP1, FP2 and 2 applied units)

    Suppose it's to make more people take the whole A-level instead of just the AS Level
