    Maths doesn't come to me as easy as some subjects however I really enjoy it and if I work my ass off (4 hours a week) and with the help of my tutor I should definitely receive and A* at my final exam...

    My question to you is will I fail A-level maths? Maths as I said has not come easy to me I was working on a c.... I do enjoy it and I need it to progress with economics ultimately I'll take it if I can get a grade A in it.
    If I do take it the amount of work is be putting in per week would be 10 hours- solid revision and trial and error could a less gifted maths student succeed in this subject? Or do you need raw tallent?

    maths is just repetition. if you have the willpower to keep doing the same types of questions till you're perfect at the technique and such an A* is very easy. Most lack the willpower and fail maths and hate maths and thats why u see them doing soft subjects and at low ranked school thats require less work

    No. You're doing fine! If you put in consistent work i.e at least 8 hours a week into to the subject, you will definitely pass. It really isn't that much you have to do (try being me last year; A-Level Maths and FM in a year, both AS and A2. 40-50 hours per week ).

    Keep it up, and you will pass!
