I've just been to enrol and I intended to take A-Level Chemistry. The head of sixth form urged me not to take Chemistry without taking atleast AS Maths because apparently I'll massively struggle at A2.
This is the first time I've ever been told that Maths is crucial for A-Level Chemistry.
I'm quite competent with maths (A* at GCSE) however I really don't enjoy it and I really don't want to take it at A-Level at all.
So how important is A-Level maths for Chemistry? And will I completely crumble if I don't take it; like the head of sixth form said?

Maths is not necessary for chemistry. The only maths you'll need to do is rearranging equations and substituting numbers in, working out ratios and doing percentages. Nothing you wouldn't be fine with if you have an A* at GCSE. Definitely don't do maths just for chemistry if you don't like it.

Your teacher's an idiot. If your fine with just rearranging simple equations, then you most certainly don't need to take A-level maths especially if you don't enjoy it
