What is it like at a level? What are the exam papers like? What do you learn? And how similar to GCSE physics is it? How confident at maths do you need to be? The exam board I would be doing is Edxcel, but would it be too hard to do without A level Maths ?

When I was doing A level Physics, taking A level Maths alongside it was a requirement at my 6th form. The maths in general is fairly simple in my opinion from what I remember (I think did OCR though, or at least definitely not Edxcel). There were quite a few equations you'd be using throughout the course, but if you can remember when to use which then you'd probably be fine. I didn't do triple science so I can't quite say how much harder it gets.
You could try asking teachers at your school for advice maybe? Perhaps they could show you a textbook you'd be using, so you can see some examples of how difficult the maths gets - this would give you a much better idea than just my opinion, which may be biased since I'm doing Physics at university.
