    It would be difficult to get in contact with the exam board and enter just one student, it's all probably just too much hassle for them.
    Once they have identified exactly which course it is (AQA Level 2 certificate in Further Mathematics 8360) then it is only a couple of minutes work to find the base data and enter someone. They then might have to provide invigilation just for the OP - it takes place when the GCSEs are pretty much over so if the school doesn't have a 6th form he could be on his own - but the difficulty of making the entry is not a consideration.

    Is there a particular reason you don't rate it?
    Yes - it is a strange mixture of topics which aren''t really linked in any way.

    If you really want to take Maths/F Maths A levels then go for the 9 - the number awarded is going to be capped and far fewer than A*s.

    You are better off reading widely rather than take this qualification. [I teach maths and prepare students for top unis every year]

    Do your teachers have access to the AQA teachers site as they are some additional resources for it if you are determined.

    [By the way it's not a GCSE it's technically a level 2]
