    Guys, I want to know whether Maths degrees at university will change (get harder) at universities because of the new 9-1 specification. So will it be different for students going to uni in 2019?

      No. The 9-1 spec GCSE content is very similar to the old GCSE anyway besides the odd topic which crept down from the old AS spec. Universities are always altering their modules year by year to offer the most up to date content, and this shall not change because of the new GCSE's (and A Levels for that matter)

      Do you mean if the entry requirement will be affected, not the actual difficulty of the course itself? If so, then possibly. It's entirely up to each university to choose a suitable entry requirement.

      If you mean the actual difficulty of the course then of course not.

      No, but the new A-level specification for maths may influence changes in the MAT/STEP.
