    Is Maths at University hard?
    That's a very subjective question!

    Do you enjoy maths at the moment?

    I'd say it also depends on which university you apply to, though the courses across all universities often cover similar content, the pacing of the content is different.
    An A in Maths and Further Maths is pretty good, and will stand you in good stead.

    A note of caution, maths at University is quite different from A-level, with more careful reasoning, and can require more effort to understand.

    I don't know a lot about Leeds, but a quick google search suggests nothing out of the ordinary except maybe the option to take non-related courses which is kind of cool.

    Joostan is correct in all of the above. Actually some people flourish more at university due to the freedom of their courses so you may do even better than you did at A-Level, I certainly did. Leeds maths course is pretty good and flexible and allows for you to transition into related fields if you decide to go onto postgraduate study, field such as fluid dynamics, planetary sciences, nano-systems, biological and more ..
