It depends - we did it in one hour a week for two years and we found it very hard.

Others I know were forced to sit their GCSE exams a year early and then if they got an A*, they progressed onto this during their normal 4/5 hours teaching time every week and they found it as easy (or as hard) as GCSE maths.

It also depends on what you're wanting to get out of it, talking to people who are doing A-Level Maths it seems that the course does really gear you up for it, so you've got that edge when you go to Sixth Form or University. If you're hoping for a grade, you should really be doing the latter (above), but if you're thinking of taking A-Level maths, it's a really good thing to have.

I'm expecting to get a C, if that, and if I'll just say 'I studied the course'. Sixth Forms were very impressed by it too though.

Good Luck!

For most Colleges and Sixth forms a grade B is expected in Additional Science as well as core science. (I.e. grade BB). Also, you are often required to have achieved at least a B in GCSE maths and are frequently expected to take AS maths in conjunction with Physics because the courses are so related.

it is not difficult for me but if you find it difficult, try to understand the concept of the topic you are learning in maths. try reading the examples again and again to understand how does the equation work and how to get the solution.
