Math degree w/o further math a-levelWatch
What I heard is that the first 1.5 years of degree math covers the same topics as A-level math but ofcourse goes into more depth. Is this true? Also i heard if one did further math at A2, that would be your full degree content at uni but questions are much tougher than A-level. Can current math uni students please comment on this. Thanks.
Do you think one would be able to cope with a math degree at uni without having done the furhter math to AS or A2 level?
I'm not at university yet but have researched it.
I'm in my first year of uni and I have an A level in Maths and an uncertificated AS in further Maths. I learnt the AS in further Maths by myself. The maths at uni basically covers further maths (the pure modules), we are doing some modules which even the very good mathematicians are finding hard. One module we are doing is basically half s1/s2 and half d1/d2 which is comforting.
Good luck in the future. If you get an A in Mathematics at A level, you can easily cope with Maths at uni.
Hope this has been of some help.
