    Hello! I am an AS level student who has taken Math, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Spanish.

    Last year I took C1 and C2 modules and the Further Maths IGCSE Edexcel. My grades were as follows:
    F.Maths IGCSE- B
    My biggest problem at F. Maths IGCSE was timing. I didnt finish either of the two papers, which caused me to lose a lot of marks.

    This year I shall do FP1, FP2, M1 and S1. Next year; FP3, C3, C4, M2, M3 and S2.

    I was looking at some top unis' webpages and for someone who wants to apply to mathematics, it is essential to take papers such as STEP or MAT. I would like to be informed about the content, level, when to sit them, and the preparation. Note: It is most probable I will be preparing for these papers alone as my school will not offer much help. Will that really affect my performance?

    Additionally, I am kind of confused at what career to apply for. I love mathematics and always have, ever since pre-school. But of course, mathematics at a high level is completely different from maths at a younger age.

    However, I would especially like advice on the STEP, MAT, AEA..etc

    Thank you
