Hey!

I'm just wondering how much of a step up a level maths is as some of my friends say it's really easy. (One of them did a paper and was a mark of an A without knowing the whole Syllabus!!)

Easier then GCSE imo

Its an easy high grade and you will be able to focus more on other subjects for revisin, provided you are some what decent at maths

If you are an A/A* student you will find it easy. If you get a B at gcse there is less of a chance, every one who got a GCSE B got an E or U last hear, except for one person so were forced to drop it

Okay thank you, I'm getting about 90 - 99% on the papers so sounds like everything will be good

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOL fam u must be joking. Don't listen to this idiot. It is one of the hardest A-levels and definitely isn't an easy high grade. It is much harder than GCSE but with work put in a good grade will be achieved. I know loads of people who got A* at GCSE and now getting U's at A level. Like I said before, I hope you were joking

Oh c'mon, it obviously depends on the ability of the candidate - OP claims to be getting > 90% at GCSE so i have strong doubts they'll find it too taxing. Harder than GCSE? I don't think so. The difficulty in A level maths stems from the way the questions are designed - not the content itself, content is actually very straightforward to understand if you pay attention. And knowing "loads of people" that went from A*s to Us is very interesting; I know of no person who got an A* at GCSE who is failing A level maths.

Was not joking but we all have opiniona. All I am saying is that if you find GCSE maths easy, you are likely to not find A level maths easy. The content is also easy to understand and as I said IMO it doesnt require much work, the questions are virtually the same each year so if you get the concept it is an easy grade A*/ 100%. It also helps if you take aditional maths at GCSE. Granted if you are not good at GCSE maths then no doubt you will find a level maths difficult.
But I reckon that the OP will not find it too hard, especially as they are getting over 90% at GCSE now.

Yeah I am taking OCR FMSQ Additional Maths and getting about 80% - I taught myself during the summer. Thank you for all your help!

C1 is basically just high level GCSE. C2 is harder but still not that difficult. Overall, I think Maths is pretty easy. (I do further maths too which is really difficult). I got an A for maths at GCSE btw.

fsmq helps a lot with a level - you'll know pretty much all of C1 and a decent amount of C2, so the AS should be pretty easy for you
