personally, I found further maths far easier than normal gcse maths. Thats because further maths was just pure maths. If you like maths and do lots of past paper questions, you'll find the content really easy.

IMO how difficult it is can vary massively.

If you put hours in early on in A-levels spend more time really understanding conceptually whats happening in calculus, vectors, complex field etc. then it really doesn't have to be difficult. It really is a question of building a deep understanding of the logic and problem solving.

The problems people face with further maths, is they learn how to answer A-level maths calculus without a deep routed understanding of what and why things are happening and when to employ what strategy, this then leaves students more exposed in further maths as the complexity ramps up.
