    So i am currently in year 11 and finding maths super easy.
    I am easily getting level 8s in papers without revising and i think , since only 239/300 is required for 9, i can easily get a 9.
    However i am also doing further maths which i got a B in in the mocks, but i am finding it really hard.
    I want to know if a level maths os as hard as gcse further maths , or if i can easily get a* in a level maths

    And is a level maths good enough to go into an actuarial profession (with degreeofc) or is further maths preferred

    I got an a* at GCSE (I did find it easy), but I would say that a level is a big jump. the 2nd year in particular is hard.
    it's not easy to get an a* at a level as you need to get 90% on c3 and c4, and c4 is a lot harder than GCSE (imo) I can't comment in further maths as I didn't do it

    A level maths is enough but specific courses need specific things like a special maths exam so do your research
