    Basically I want to finalise my A level choices so that when I do start applying in November I'll be confident in what I choose. The question is should I do A level maths and further maths?

    From year 7-9 I was in the second set for maths (most likely to achieve a B/A at the end of year 11). However, at the end of year 9 I put the work in and managed to achieve a high 8b which progressed me to the first set (most likely achieve an A/A* at the end of year 11) at the start of year 10 last year. Currently I am still in the first set and am predicted an A* but judging from my past in maths is A level maths and further maths for me or should I consider different subjects?

    It really depends whether you enjoy the subject. If you do, just go for it. I was in set 2 at GCSE and got an A* in the end, then this year I got an A in AS maths and further maths and predicted A*s for A2. I have a friend who was in the 4th set at GCSE and surprised everyon by getting an A* and then doing really well in maths and further maths. Basically, if you think you enjoy maths, go for it. But just be aware, you have to really like the subject, because you'll basically spend all your evenings and weekends doing hours of maths, so it's only worth it if you really like the subject!

    Maths is the only subject I most enjoy and actually look forward too. It's also one of my strongest along with English. Thanks for your opinion I think I'll do maths and further maths after all
