    Hey,

    Im doing my gcses this year but my teacher has told us we have to do AS level maths along with them. Im currently finding c1 pretty good, but i know the difficulty of C2, and in particular my applied module, will add a significant workload to my schedule. What im asking is, will doing AS level maths, significantly affect my gcse grades? I know nobody can give a definite yes/no, but how much work is required for A grades in c2 and s1?

    thank you

    You could make it work, yeah. But more importantly, do you want to?

    You must be prepared to put in the effort for it, because AS Maths is all about practice, practice and more practice. I can't say anything about S1 having never seen it before, but C1 and C2 are quite easy as long as you're committed enough.

    I learnt almost everything from C1, C2 and C3 in my Additional Mathematics IGCSE, so it is definitely not impossible!

    Yes i do want to do it, but since i have to dedicate time to my AS modules, i will have less time to focus on more fact based subjects like history, which might lead to a downfall..i've nearly finished c1 so do you suggest i finish c1 by october and then revise c2 even though i have c1 in jan and c2 in june?

I think im going to do OK in c1, but its c2 and s1 im worried about, especially since i have close to 20 exams in june and only 4 in jan when i do c1

    I did C1 ans S1 with my A levels. Tbh I didn't put any effort in at all though, I thought of it as a free attempt to see what it was like, because I knew I'd be doing them again in college. I'd recommend doing them, as it makes it a lot easier when you're doing them for real, but don't let it effect your GCSE results.
