Hi...

I'm at IGCSE level.
So I wanted to know that which Mathematics to take, the Mathematics (9-1) [0980] or Mathematics International [0607] ?

And next thing is, should I take Additional Mathematics [0606] as well? Is it necessary and why should a Student take it? What are the benefits and non-benefits for not taking it?

As I see at A Level there is very types of Maths to learn so if not taken Add Maths a problem? And universities do start from basic, and is it a problem to start any Engineering/degree class without add maths here? Possible not coping up with class or fail to have job?

Please explain me all in great details.

Thanks...

Add math is just an additional qualification. It does count as an IGCSE however most people take it just for the knowledge and don't achieve high marks. It's not needed. However, it will help with some parts of A level maths. However, it is more beneficial for IB. And at A level they will offer u "Further Maths" which will help you a lot in university. I researched this a lot myself because I was worried I would be behind if I didn't take add math. You'll be okay with normal math and if you want to do Further Maths at A levels then you should cover some extra content during the summer to have a head start. But Add math will help you a lot, especially the understanding but for me, the extra stress wasn't worth it.

Well I have learned and covered the Edexcel Pure Mathematics, I learend it from a teacher at my Home. So I have the idea of the topics and can do sums. So the main thing is that its very hard and not enough luck to achieve for me good grade it that so why waste time on that, so I am now at CAIE thus didn't take Add/Pure Maths. I think its a fine choice. And at A levels I will get prepared with Maths as I already know the Pure/Add maths topics no problem if i didn't give exam right?
So yeah A level will prepare me for best in for universities I believe.
