    No, but success in engineering would be proportional to a solid basic background of maths, and Add maths helps big time

    Without addmaths A level maths would be Extremely difficult for you. So O level addmaths is highly recommended if you want to study Engineering.

    I disagree....

    I did A'level maths without doing addmaths in o'level.Granted,you need to put more hard work compared to students who have done o'level addmath but it is not impossible. There are many students who get great grades in A'level math without doing o'level addmath.

    I did nt say its impossible but its way more difficult. For o level admaths students, p1 is a piece of cake! Non admaths student have to do it from scrap which is difficult. So its beter if this guy takes admaths or else he might regret it when he goes to A level.

    One thing is for sure, without admaths one will have to achieve a miracle to do well in A level further maths! Engineering students should have o level addmaths, and take both maths and further maths in A levels to make a very competitive application in top universities. Don't discourage this guy. I am sure he will really regret it in the future if he does nt take admaths.

    i am not discouraging. in fact i would also recommend him to take add maths. Yes if u plan to take further maths in A lvl, then add math is kinda must. BUT add maths and further maths are never compulsory in ny course in any university, but still they put some impression when u apply. do further maths in a lvl only if u are exceptional at maths
