What level of Mathematics to study Maths at Uni watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm studying an Access to Combined Sciences course at college alongside retaking my GCSE English and also attending two lessons a week of A level mathematics, of which I understand most. I am also working part time as I live with my partner.

    The Access Course is a lot of work, which I am coping with but in order to get the Distinctions and Merits that I am aiming for, I am having to do a lot of work in my spare time, which I have no problem with, but it leaves me a little anxious that I'm getting behind with the mathematical side of things. I follow most of the A level stuff but the Access course and even English GCSE have to take precedent over the A level Mathematics as those courses are what I am banking on to get me into University. I just don't want to get to University and find myself completely out of my depth (I've applied to study Mathematics and 'Mathematics Education').

    At the moment, all I can think of is to concentrate on my Access course and then spend the time between finishing college and starting University to do a lot of A level standard Maths, though it won't be easy as it's much harder to self-teach than to learn from a teacher, I think.
