All of the questions in A-level maths (and FM) require no thought to solve. It's literally a memorisation test, except it's not because the solutions are so obvious you don't even need to remember how to do them.

What is the point in such an easy test? There should be harder questions to test the best candidates.

You may have a natural ability to do Mathematics. Others do not. I don’t take A-Level Mathematics, but I do take Physics. I agree with the fact that a lot of the questions repeat but have different wordings.

I’m assuming you want to go for a Maths degree?

Its a personal opinion - a lot of people struggle with a level maths and that is fine. I personally don't find a-level maths too bad but I do find a level further maths more challenging.

Did you think GCSEs were easy? Because almost half the country can't get 5Cs inc' English and Maths for those!

A-level maths does have a very rate of good grades compared to other A-levels though that us true.

GCSE's are easy if you do a decent amount of work, the exams in themselves aren't actually hard

This isn't bait i'm serious

like if you do some practice it isn't hard

if you're already okay at maths then you don't even need to practice

I found AS level content easy, however, the A2 Level content was quite a bit harder.

Which specification are you talking about? Which option did you take for Further Maths?

I'm in year 12 now but the integration stuff in A2 (which i'm guessing is what you found harder) is also easy because they only ask you to do easy integrals.
They should ask stuff like this one:
\int_0^1{\sqrt{1+x^2}dx}

If you are clever enough to find maths this easy then you should also be clever enough to realise that the vast majority of people find maths much much harder than you.

If you haven't actually done Year 13 yet, I don't think you can really comment about the difficulty of the entire maths A-Level.

I'm not clever I just studied harder than others.

That's a further maths integral. If they were to include these kind of integrals in A Level maths then they would have to remove something else because there is a limit to the number of topics that can be included.
