i'm not naturally quick with maths but i found it manageable as long as you put the effort in. difficulty is relative though.

What grade was your GCSE? Are you confident with algebra?

Nobody can quantify how hard is it which’s ironic given the context and subject
But like somebody above said, ‘hard is relative’ and depends on the individual.

i got a grade 8 .
i enjoy maths bc i love the logical steps you have to go through and majority of the time your answer is either wrong or right .
however, it also takes me quite a while to grasp how to do something

Are you prepared to put in the time to understand as you go along?

i mean, ig i'd like to think so. my dilemma is that i currently take four a levels and i need to drop one because otherwise my workload is too much; however, I'm not entirely sure which to drop.

Which 4 are they? Do you see one of them as an outlier/different to the rest? Do you have a specific pathway in mind for the future? Judging from what you’ve had so far, which seems to be the hardest to you?

this is the problem i have - i don't know what i want to do in the future with my career. i either want to go into finance/econ/business or law or tv presenting ... extremely different i know haha. if i want to do econ (esp at a russel group uni) you need maths.
the subjects i have taken are maths, econ, literature and theatre. maths and econ are there for the business side of things (and i def don't want to drop econ bc i took it for gcse and i love it sm). literature is there for law and theatre was there for both tv presenting and law.

i'm trying so hard to think what's best to drop. i love them all and have a passion for them, (that's why i took them originally), but i know i'm going to struggle in the long run and i'd rather get an AAA than an AABB for example. also, uni's don't require you to take four so i don't see why i should do the extra work if i'm going to struggle w it - esp the time management.

people say 'do what you love' but the thing is i'm so interested in all four of the subjects i've taken.
any help or advice you have would be extremely useful
