When does the jump of A-level Maths kick in?Watch
i've just started a level maths+further maths and i feel that the 9-1 gcses bridged the gap between gcse and a level maths making it a much smoother transition, my teachers have said how they feel we have much more experience with the early a level topics so the first half term will mainly be recap and just slightly harder than what we've done so far
The jump tends to be over exaggerated. Of course the content gets harder over time, but it’s not like you’ll get something and then switch to something you completely don’t get. As long as you understand what’s being taught in lessons, then you’ll be fine.
The jump starts when you start A2 stats and mechanics. Pure gets slightly harder with trigonometry for some people and further integration so I guess if you want to do that stuff, you will have to wait for a while since that stuff is old spec C3/C4
I've started some C3 Trig like sec, cosec, cot etc and trig equations with them and I thought they were alright. But stats looks so wordy and difficult ;/
Yes I agree stats is wordy but it isn't hard if you understand what is happening. Obviously I didn't try and understand it so I messed up my stats exam but if you can learn the theory then you should be fine. Besides, it's just picking the information from the information they give you and you will be told how to do it by your teacher so don't worry about it.
