    No doubt that you will find it more challenging - as it is more difficult than GCSE'S, after all it is A level Maths, But, that does not mean that you won't do well, it's really all about how much effort you are willing to put in to help yuorself understand the subjects more...

    Yes, but everything is more difficult at A level, that goes without saying.

    I got an A at GCSE (A* in my mock :/) with no effort whatsoever, which lets be honest most people manage to do, so I assumed I'd be able to coast through AS Maths and I was totally wrong. Found it way too hard and got a U and dropped it. If you're naturally good at maths then you'll already have a slight advantage, but you need to genuinely enjoy the subject and put in the hours because you'll end up doing bad if you try and coast on your natural ability.
