    I am predicted to get a B in GCSE Maths.
    As i am wanting to do A level Physics, my sixth form says i have to do a 1 year course of maths

    ( keep in mind i wont be doing A2 Maths as i MUST drop it at the end of year 12)

    Would I Survive AS Maths with my low predicted grade and could anyone link to AS only past papers to look at

    well i cant say as it's subjective but you make the judgement. I got A* at maths gcse, after my exams i did the step up course, all was going really well, everything was A* gcse stuff, the only thing i got stuck on was differientation and the other new concept. with determination i looked up differientation on youtube and was taught it within 10 minutes.
    I heard C2 is harder as it has some newer concepts, but absolutely doable.
    C1 and C2 as well as the applied course is not hard if you do a lot of past papers and if you're ever in need of help, there's some really good mathematician on TSR
