I feel I just scraped an A at GCSE and was originally going for stats at a level . I got a C in further maths and the majority of my marks came from the first half of the paper. Could I get an A in A-Level maths?

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.
You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here.

A-level maths is unlike GCSE, yes its much more difficult, but remember unlike GCSE where you had 10, 11 or whatever number of subjects... A levels subjects are reduced to 3 or 4.. therefore the subject contents are much more in depth and explore many new concepts.

Hard. Very, very hard. But with frequent practice of solving questions as and when you can will definitely allow you to excel in the subject.

I don't think there's any hiding the difficulty for A Level maths but I got a D in a mock paper in November and I came out with an A for the full A Level this year. So, it's not impossible. Just prepare yourself for the fact that it will be a lot more difficult and you just need to be ready for the workload. Make sure you practice as many questions as you can, do past papers and if you don't understand something just try and find a different method.
