    What Maths do you need for A-Level Physics if you do not do A-Level Maths.
    I'm currently taking Physics, Biology and Computer Science but no maths A-Level.

    People tell me that I'll need to work harder for the maths gap between the A-level and GCSE maths topics so can someone tell me what I need to learn on the maths side for AS and A2 Physics.
    I'm studying the new AQA syllabus by the way.

    Physics and Computer Science but no Maths? That's very unusual. What do you want to do at university?
