By the end of year 10 maths, I was on track to be doing Methods 1/2. I swapped that for Further 1/2 - which my teachers found to be very weird as I seemed capable enough to do Methods.

Thanks for the response!

I also completed Yr 10 Maths with a consistent high score and had lots of encouragement (mixed with expectations) from teachers that I would do Methods, so I did.

At that stage, I was slightly more motivated in my studies as it was before I ran into some hurdles with subject changes (despite all the backing I got from my teachers, I was denied a spot in Advanced Yr 10 Math due to being undecided on my future career choice).

Because of said hurdles, I had to do the coursework from Advanced Math on the side, along with my existing subjects which included a 1/2.

I think along the way I burnt out because of the sudden increase in workload, hence why Methods is just something I don't care about.

I do feel a lot more encouraged to pick Further Maths after reading your post though. Thanks again!
