Question
Hello, do i need to take maths A level to become a Commercial Airline pilot or just in GCSE and what grades would you reccomend. Thanks

Answer
"A" levels, I think, refers to U.K. schooling (that I did not attend).
I don't know to what GCSE refers--probably some general educational test. I recommend you know as much math as you can tolerate, for flying is essentially the end all in balance of math computations.  The more you know about how the machinery works, the better you'll be able to cope with malfunctions--that are bound to happen.
