    Core 1 contains a lot of GCSE topics, I don't think Core 2 contains any apart from a little bit in sequences but the notation is different and Statistics 1 there's one chapter that has GCSE stuff which is just histograms and box plots ect. So most of C2 and S1 will be completely new. I didn't find it much of a jump by then again I did the Further Maths GCSE.

    If you are an A* student at gcse maths, then unless you literally do nothing the entire year, you will most likely get a good grade in AS maths. AS maths is fairly straightforward once you get the hang of it, just practice a bit on it every week and do a bunch of past papers towards exam period. A2 maths is where it gets rather tricky though.

    If you're an A or high B grade student at GCSE maths, then you will need to put in quite a bit more work, but it should all come together nicely by the time your first AS maths exams starts.

    Best of luck in your GCSEs pal!

    Personally I don't think it's that much harder, if your good at Maths and really enjoy it you should be fine
