    sorry... just had to rant about this somewhere

    Also, our teacher said we do coursework in this subject... What is the coursework about/what do you have to do? (and I thought coursework was scrapped?)

    because a level maths at my school was full and the enrolment people said that use of is pretty much the same but it includes coursework too... I guess they lied so they could get rid of me ad go home or something?

    The majority of the "hard" maths is covered in the second year, but hence the name it is mainly applying the maths, especially the first year. But yeah, a third of the second year is coursework.
