    Hi Everyone, i have just started my a levels in september but i am really worried about maths. I just feel like i cant keep up with what is going on in lessons and everyone else seems to be able to understand apart from me. I dont know whether it is worth me carrying on or if i should just do a different subject if its not too late to change?! The only problem is i dont know what i would do instead! I got an 8 in gcse but i feel that A level maths is a massive step up and im not sure if i can keep up! Not sure if anyone will be able to help me but thank you for reading anyway! 😊

    Just work twice as hard. Go to your teachers after school to get extra help. Watch online videos. Don't give up on yourself.

    An 8 in GCSE shows you are capable, seems like your just down on confidence. Don’t worry about everyone else in the class, if you need help ask your teacher for clarification, or even a classmate who seems to know their stuff (this helps both you and them). Maybe read up on what you will do before the lesson so that going in you’re slightly familiar with the content, and good luck 😊😊

    Thankyou to both of you! I will keep going and i agree that asking for help is definately something i need to do 😊 also reading up on the content prior to the lesson and watching videos are great ideas! I will definately do that too!
