I'm expecting a grade 8 (A*) in my gcse maths and i dont know which maths to study at a level. My favourite topics are algebra, graphs, geometry and trigonometry to some extent but that's it really. I dont like doing things like ratio, proportion, rates of change and things on probability.

I dont know what the topics are like in both maths and further maths so i hope that some of you could help me out.

I'd say when you do end up getting a grade 8, take up both of them and see if you actually like FM. If you don't then you can drop it and pick up another subject.

Yeah that's my plan at the minute. Do you know what gcse topics the a level maths and further maths really focus on? Like algebra or probability or something like that?

I think it's more Algebra and Geometry.

Is that for normal maths or further maths?

1st year further maths probably varies between colleges, but at my college we had to take Further Pure 1 (more pure maths and harder than C1 and C2), Statistics 1 (I don't particularly like statistics but it is lots of maths still and fairly easy) and Decision 1 (not much maths, basically using basic algorithms to find optimal solutions to problems).

2nd year, you'll probably be able to choose what modules you'll like so you can stick with mechanics and pure maths if you want which is the stuff you like

I'd look at the college/s that you're going/applying to and see what modules you take in maths and further maths and what decisions you can make about it. Anything 'Core' or 'Further Pure' is the stuff that you said you liked and you'll probably like Mechanics. Stats and Decision aren't enjoyable but they're fairly easy.

Do you mean?...

Maths

or

Maths and Further Maths

You'll either be allowed to do Maths on its own, or you take both.
