I'm very likely to get a B grade at maths in the 2016 exams.

My question is: Will this grade be good enough to do A2 maths?

AND

Will a B at GCSE be enough to achieve an A at A2 maths?

Yes it is good enough, whether it is standard or not is irrelevant also your GCSE grade doesn't effect your grades in collage so if you work hard enough you have a chance of getting a really good grade

I got a B in my GCSE which I practically self taught and am expecting a high A grade at AS-level. A-level maths is not hard, just a lot of practice.

i got a C first time at GCSE maths (year 9) and sat A-Level and got an A at AS (298/300). Nothing is 'not good enough' if you try hard enough.

Whether a B is good enough depends on the entry requirements of the college you want to do it at. Although your GCSE grade doesn't dictate what grade you will get at A Level, you are generally less likely to get an A at A Level if you get a B at GCSE, than if you got an A or A* for example.

You can defo get it. If you work proper hard at A level then you'll get an A. Maths is a subject where if you learn the method once you can apply to similar questions and with a lot of practice you can achieve an A easily. I know you've probably heard it already but if you do end up doing maths at a level make sure you are constantly doing revision and work for it. Just a word of warning, In a level maths If you get one question wrong then you could drop a whole grade. Bearing this in mind if you think you'll be able to achieve an A (with a lot of work) seeing as you could possibly have a B at GCSE, then go ahead

But if you're going to bother to worn extra hard then go for it. You'll need to put in a lot more effort to get an A than everyone else though.

There were about 6 people in my AS maths class last year who achieved B's at GCSE and only 2 of which managed to get above a D and therefore into A2 maths. Saying this, there have been some people in my school who got a B in A-level maths with a B at GCSE. It just depends how hard you're working now, and how hard you're prepared to work.

I'd speak to your teacher about this as they should know you and your capabilities in maths the most. Good luck with your GCSE's

No my maths teacher advised that only people with at least an A should do maths at A Level. Good advice I tried and failed at the first post. Whatever. However give it a go over summer holidays if you're really that dedicated!

Of course you can do it!! It's just whether you put the effort in at A-level... In my class one of my friends is ridiculously good at math but he just puts in no effort to papers and is predicted like a C even though he got an A* at GCSE

Try and aim for an A as much as you can though because you can do it!!!!!!

Well if you look at the C1 and C2 book ( which are the core modules) it says its assuming you got a C in GCSE. Well now i got a B app maths and A in meth maths. People that got A's in maths and even B's struggled. It totally depends. If you get a B your school should let you do it. What i Recommend is go over C1 in the summer and learn it all. This will make your life a lot easier. Honestly you can get an A in maths and even Ft maths at AS if you try hard enough .
