Maths is definitely hard, because you'll be introduced to new concepts you've never even heard of (especially in further maths). You always have to practice the questions because its not like you'll learn it in class and remember it, you always have to go over it. Though, its really fun (especially for me as i have a really small class). However it will get insanely hard if you're not always on top of it and practicing, you don't even need to read ahead, just practice what you're doing.
Since you're considering doing both maths and fm then I'm guessing you're a bit of a maths nerd (like me :P ) so you'll definitely work hard for both of the a levels. Keep in mind though that not all universities need further maths for a degree and for most its just highly recommended or the same as having a physics/chemistry a level. don't forget to look around at universities and see what they want. Although if you're just doing it because you love maths that's fine (even better than just doing it so you can look smart to other people)
I'd say go ahead, work hard now for maths so you can do both the a levels later on. If youv'e got any more questions just ask me (or make another thread)

Further Mahs is quite abstract. It's not necessarily harder but there's more content and it introduces concepts you won't have seen before (complex numbers, matrices etc). With both subjects, practice is essential. You have to really be on top of it, and the basic processes (such as polynomial differentiation/integration) need to become second-nature.
