Also i haven't done GCSE maths so i wanted to which topics are required to learn in GCSE maths for better understanding in AS-level maths.
2. You need to know and be good at every single GCSE topic to even start thinking about A-level maths.

You havent done GCSE Maths and you're doing AS level??!!
You need to know (from GCSE) sine & cosine graphs, quadratic formula, trig & pythag theorem, sine & cosine rule, surds, indices and MUCH more (this is from off the top of my head)
5. Have you done any GCSE maths?

Nope, but i've taught myself few of the topics..
8. You should really have done GCSE maths before doing A level maths, as almost all of the topics are built on top of fundamental GCSE maths.

Same im doing AS too. You could always just learn the AS then if you get confused on anything just look back at the GCSE notes for the topic online. Ive heard that further maths GCSE knowledge helps but i didnt do it so idk.
