Just a thread so I can come to for motivation for those ups and downs and know that I'm not going to fight a pointless battle.

Some parts of A level maths are actually quite interesting. The challenging aspect of problem solving also made it enjoyable for me. I think the most important benefit is that you will have many more doors open for yourself when you apply to Uni as many courses need A level maths. A lot of my friends wanted to apply for certain courses but weren't able to due to them not having A level maths. Despite the papers this year being quite tough, studying A level maths will never be something I regret. (This is coming from someone who is planning on doing a humanities degree where A level maths is not required)

you start learning the basics behind calculus, otherwise known as the most powerful tool known to man.

That sounds nice, I'm interested in mostly algebra which fortunately is most of the pure section. I've always wanted to know/understand how to do logarithms and differentiation so I guess I have an excuse to learn it now.

If you enjoy Maths I would definitely encourage you to take it as one of your options. If you know that your uni course doesn’t need it but does need certain subjects, I would advise you to prioritise the subjects you definitely need, but if you have options left over, maths is a great choice.

There is a lot of differentiation and integration (the reverse of differentiation) and you also use logarithms in the statistics section at points. The mechanics also has applied differentiation and integration so I think you’ll enjoy these sections too.

Good luck!
