Should I take 3U Functions this year in grade 10???

So in grade 9 math last year (1st semester) I got a 95 in academic math, and this year in grade 10 academic math I got a 96. I'm wondering if I should take 3U functions this year so I can take 4U functions next year in grade 11 and then only calc in grade 12 or I take 3U and 4U functions next year in grade 11 and only calc in grade 12 or I could go at a normal pace and take 4U functions and calc in the same year of grade 12? However, I heard that the jump from grade 10 to 11 math is large, so I don't know if I should take it this year because I might get a lower mark.

It all depends. As long as you have taken grade 10 math first semester then grade 11 functions second semester, you should be fine. Disclaimer though that grade 11 is a big switch from grade ten as in where grade 9 and 10 math are closely related and then all of a sudden it is a new switch when you are introduced to functions. But to get to the point, it is a large jump as in new material but I found functions to be extremely easy. If you managed to get those marks for 9 and 10, it is safe to bet that you'll be just fine in functions.
