Hello! I am currently studying GCSE Maths and I really enjoy maths and especially algebra. Most of my results are A* between 95%-100%. I am looking forward to do A level Maths and Further Maths and I have heard that further maths is quite hard. Can anyone tell me how hard is further maths?

it depends on the modules you take

Easiest route
FP1/FP2/D1/D2/S1/S2 (assuming M1/M2 were taken at Straight Maths)

total joke to be called "further"



Hardest route
FP1/FP2/FP3/M3/M4/M5 (assuming M1/M2 were taken at Straight Maths)
Spoiler:
Show
total respect

It's a bit harder than A-level maths.

I agree with what TeeEm said, but in addition feel that FP4(if available) is harder than FP1 and some people find statistics harder than mechanics.

The sixth form I am applying for is doing D1/FP1/P&S2/FP2/FP3/M2 and OCR is the exam board. How hard is that?

That will be fine. One of the easier routes, but enough respectable applied modules in there to appeal to many degree courses.

If you enjoy maths a Further Maths is the way to go. The A* at GCSE is a bonus.
