    I got an A* at IGCSE, and am currently doing FSMQ and I understand that it (FSMQ) bridges the gap between (I)GCSE and a level maths as we do some of C1 and C2(?).

    I don't necessarily enjoy maths, and nowadays i take a while to grasp onto new concepts, but of course it would be good and/or useful to have -- should I take it as an A level?

    I'll probably be taking biology, chemistry and psychology or french as my other 3 options.

    Its a really good classic a level, and im assuming you know its hard but if you got a star at igcse and you work hard at a level, you can definatly do good and it is valued very well. If you really dont enjoy though and not have the motivation to do well then its not worth it
