I have just read somewhere in the forums about A level maths (which i will be doing) and i have been freaked out. People are saying you need at least an A in your gcse and then you might have a chance of doing well. Some said that they got A* and are struggling in their A level maths. I was just wondering what percentage you need in A level maths to get an A

80% - although it's not the actual percentage you need on the exams, which is often lower (70-75%).

I think it depends on the person.

Some people struggle, others rise to the challenge.

Plus, the coursework is not like English essays - its over and done with very quickly

I got A in maths and statistics GCSE and also just scraped a C at A level (there was only one mark in it). Maths is a difficult subject, there's no denying that. But as long as you have a good teacher and you put in the work it shouldn't be too hard.

Possibly - it depends who you are. Some people just find maths very inaccessible.

I got A* at GCSE and then only just managed to pass A-Level (got an E). I didn't understand a lot of the course and didn't have very good teachers, though people in the same class as me who got the same at GCSE got A grades at A-Level. I had to teach myself stats in the end as our teacher was so bad - but then I didn't put enough time into other modules, so didn't do as well as I hoped (I had hoped for at least a D but the horrid P3 exam spoiled that). It completely depends on how much work you are going to put in.
