    Don't do AS maths unless you get an A* or A at GCSE, not worth it. You will never be able to do it and it will affect your other subjects. If you do get a good GCSE grade and are willing to put in a huge amount of effort then yes, give it a go.

    If you are going to drop it then make sure you think wisely about the 3 other A levels you are taking as you will have to stick with these

    AS Maths is not difficult. If you're willing to put the effort in by doing past papers/practice papers, then you will get the grade you deserve.

    Math? Which country are you in? If you have taken GCSE, what grade do you expect to achieve?

    You shouldn't need a tutor - Plenty of excellent, free online resources such as ExamSolutions.net which have worked solutions to every past paper up to 2016, and also video tutorials for the whole specification.
