Why are you considering it if you are not good at Maths? Most schools require a grade 8/9 at GCSE to take FM.

We ask for a grade 7 - how strong is your algebra? How do you know your GCSE grade already?

There is nothing inherently difficult about A-Level further maths, or A-Level maths for that matter. What matters is your motivations. If you like maths, it will be a cruise because you will enjoy learning the content and understanding all the proofs and how everything is derived - after all, that is the beauty of maths. I believe the syllabus can be learnt in 2 months if you put in at least 30 minutes of uninterrupted smart study every day. But this is a big ask for someone who doesn't like maths, say only wants to do it because it "looks good". I would say try learning from a text book for a week, 30 mins a day, doing the practice questions thoroughly, and that should help you make your mind up.

I have been homeschooled since secondary. Sat 2 exams on my own as a private candidate and then went to college to sit maths and English. That was last year and this year I sat my biology.

I found gcse maths really hard I had to resit it. I sat it as a private candidate and got a grade 4 then got a grade 6 in college and I didn't even sit the exam because of covid so I got a predicted grade

I think you might struggle with A level Maths and I would not advise FMaths.

Yes - it's about 40% of A level content.

I think you need to look at other subjects as you'd need to enjoy working on problems to do well.

40% wow I didn't know. I might consider doing that but my college and sixth forms around me don't do as level. Do you think I could do it my self at home and sit it as a private candidate?
