    would it be 2 years wasted?
    i've considered maths, geography and history.
    my only concern is maths, i'm great at gcse maths but mainly because exams were really repeated and you just throw up what you read. from my understanding, A-level maths require you to understand and stuff -_- and i'm so nervous about picking it because what if i fail??? would you say everyone will get there and understand it if they study it enough? self study? private tutoring? anyone do maths a-level ? tell me how you go through it!

    If you're good at maths now then you'll be good at maths in the future, it's just more content and concepts to get your head around.

    AS Maths doesn't require too much understanding, if you just learn the content and go through past papers anyone can still get an A/B but you need to actually put the work in. A2 you do need some level of understanding, but that's only for the A* maybe A grades. The same technique can be applied to A2 but you'd need to do even more past papers/questions etc especially due to the topics being more in depth and bringing more concepts together.

    Then you don't go to University. If University is your goal, then yes, you have failed.
