Hi, I've just gotten my GCSE results back. I'd preferably like to do A-Level Maths & Physics, however, i'm unsure as to whether i'll cope or not. I am undecided as of yet, on a third option.

I got a B in maths, a B in Core science (B in P1-3 on OCR 21st C) and an A in additional (A* in P4-6) Until october of year 11 (October 2015) I was going to do the foundation paper, i'd gotten a D in the year 11 mock, but I tried to learn all of the topics as quickly as I could and managed to get a B. I'm only really good at algebra and trig, I sucked at the rest if i'm honest.

Any advice would be nice, thanks

Maths is a really finickity thing. I got a B when I did my GCSE's and I went on to do the full A level, with the first year achieving a lovely solid E but bumping it up to a C this year. Trig is a really big part of the A level, and so is algebra obviously but there's still a really large jump from GCSE trig to A level trig. If you really enjoy Maths and are allowed to do it, by all means go for it.
