    I've heard that A level maths is really hard, but I need it to be able to study business at university. I'm currently predicted a B and could potentially get an A if I revise lots, but would that be enough to be able to handle it a A level?

    GCSE isn't a good indicator of how well you will do at A-level for maths. Maybe give it a go and drop it if you find you're struggling.

    A-level maths isn't that hard.

    with new topics you may struggle at first but once do the work set, and your own work (whether you're struggling or not) and revision, its fine. I'm in year 12, and at first found it quite challenging, but i actually enjoy it now! I just had my mock exam and it was as bad as i expected tbh

    So yeah, i say go for it! and like has already been said, you can always drop it in your first few weeks if its not for you.
    Good luck

    watch examsolutions videos on each chapter before you do it in class if you decide to do maths.

    its manageable if you know how to break it down and it'll be essential if you want to study business!
