Exponentials and logarithms. A sound understanding of this is imperative.

And nothing else is really necessary that isn't covered in gcse

Fair enough. Two topics from the a level maths spec is not bad.I will start practicing them now. All the gcse is very easy. I'm guessing the rest is just pure physics content.

Yeah, and they're very interrelated topics too (inverse operations). You'll need the full topic in detail though, right up to log-log graphs and such.

But yeah all the other maths isn't anything you couldn't do with a good gcse maths level. It's mainly physics content
