    and the reason why i want to drop maths (if i have to) is because i want to keep all the other subjects (accounting and physics)

    What board you on?

    Edexcel, AQA, etc etc.

    Anyway, AS you do C1, C2, and one of M1, S1 or D1. If you are doing further then you do FP1.

    A2 you do C3, C4, and one of M2, S2 or D2. If you are doing further you do FP2 and FP3.

    But to do M2 for instance you need to have done M1.

    Look on your boards website and it will show you. Or ask your school.
    Actually your third module in A2 does not need to be M2, S2 or D2. It could actually be an AS subject. In Lower sixth we did C1, C2 and M1. In upper sixth, our college did C3, C4 and D1.


    Sorry for my complete ignorance here, but I would arguably keep Maths instead of accounting. ;') Maths and Physics go hand in hand, Maths and Accounting go hand in hand (I think), but maths is probably more versatile.

    If you are remotely interested in maths/physics, do further maths.

    Single maths is 4 core modules and 2 applied. Further maths is 2 core modules and 4 applied.

    You don't need accounts at A-Level to do accounts at university. You don't even need Accounts at either to do accounting as a job.
    You need 3 A-Levels and currently you're only taking 3 AS Levels, you don't have the option to drop it. Maths and Further Maths are two VERY separate A-Levels. The only thing that keeps them together is the interchangeability of applied modules. Had you done Further Maths it would have been blatantly obvious as you would have sat at least one module that had "FP" as it's starting code rather than "MPC".
    Had you done both i still would have advised you to drop accounts as it is an "inferior" A-Level to maths and FM. Add onto that Maths, Physics and Further Maths are linked far more than Accounting to any of the three. Also if you choose to (and you should already sort of know if you do or not) maths/physics/ engineering at university Maths/Further Maths/Physics is far more of a punch than accounting in place of either one of those. Even for accounting i'd still do that combination in place of accounts.
