    Im in year 12 so I havent done much yet (about a quarter way but I do further maths too)

    I'd say it's definitely a big step up from GCSE overall, they expect you to pick up concepts quicker and if you dont understand you're going to be behind very quickly. If you're achieving A* or even A at GCSE, good grades in A level is perfectly achievable if you put in more effort.

    My friend got an A in Maths GCSE and got a U in A level maths so I would say pretty difficult but if maths comes naturally to you and you enjoy it I would do it because it is so much fun - I got an A* in GCSE maths and I am predicted to get an A/A* in A level maths and it is really fun.

    yeah same here.

    @op, just make sure you're comfortable with everything, I thought I was but the exam(s) completely **ed me right over - it's a shame the worst exam sat for me in maths was the one that counted as all the past papers I done I was doing fine but ay life.
