Yes, yes it will. Also are you sure you are a prodigy? That is a big word to be throwing around.

There's a lot more than just algebra.

Algebra is like 90% of a-level maths. Basically in every single topic you will need some knowledge of algebra.
But just having knowledge of algebra will not help you. It's much more than just algebra, but yes it is used consistently.

If you're choosing maths in A-level, learn and practice some basic differentiation and integration. It'll give you a head start when you start AS.

I would recommend he become very very fluent in his trigonometry he is already familiar with, the differentiation and integration is a joke at AS (and quite frankly at A2 aswell). The trig could be trippy however and is where people tend to lose marks in C2, also I would recommend you look at different types of sequences, arithmetic, recursive and geometric.

Yes maths is largely algebra based. On another note, I hope mechanics crushes this 'prodigy' >.>
