A level further maths for me?Watch
I am in year 11 and have just done the OCR FSMQ Additional maths qualification. I am also predicted a 9 in normal maths. My worry is that I have found the additional maths qualification challenging, I believe that I will be able to scrape an A (highest grade) but i don't understand the concepts too well. Bear in mind that I have had only 1 lesson every 2 weeks but still I am worried because i am looking to do further maths a level. Does this mean that I am not good enough for an A* in further maths a level and that people who get those would have found the FSMQ easy? So should i take further maths a level or not?
I would suggest working for a bit this summer solidifying your knowledge of certain topics and learning new topics - that way you will be ahead in class.
Most people in my school didn't do further maths GCSE because they weren't good enough but they still do well in further maths a level.
What other subjects have you chosen? And do you have any idea of what course you want to apply for?
I got a C in Edexcel Further Pure Maths IGCSE. I think I improved a lot during the summer because I've been doing very well for all of year 12. We've finished the whole of A-level maths and we're doing Further next year.
