    Hey go for it! I took AS Maths without admaths and my score was in the 290s (admitedly I had to work hard for it) and this year I only need a high D in A2 Maths in order to get an A overall.

    Also because of how easily I coped I am sitting AS Further Maths this year.

    Go for it - give it your best shot. Anyway if it doesnt come naturally to you, maths is the kind of subject you canjust work hard at and turn out a result

    Having done AS Maths... (haven't done IGCSE though, but looking at some the content it looks as difficult as a "normal" gcse) I'd say 7.

    this does sound bad, its not meant to be, but I didnt take admaths and I ended up with 100%on all 3 AS modules, so you really dont need it.

    In my experience most people who do A-level Maths haven't done additional maths GCSE. With 88% you should be fine, as long as you're prepared to put the work in.
