    I think the best thing for you to do if go and speak to a maths teacher (one you get on well with) and talk to them about it, see if they're willing to support you with other modules or maybe let you have lesson time to do them instead of the stats or whatever
    I tried this, but the school is strictly no options.

    What about additional further maths?

    oh really? thats quite annoying. Does you school have a lot of people do further maths?

    What's additional further maths? Is that just doing extra modules?

    Additional further is all eighteen modules, which I'm not sure I want.
    I'll try speaking to the head of maths tomorrow.

    Well generally you should be given choices... but if your school doesn't offer the modules how can you sit for the exams???
    If you are planning on self teaching, talk to your school first, ask them whether they will allow you to sit for the modules...

    a school doesn't have to offer a subject to allow people to sit the exam there

    all 18 modules would be quite hard going with all your other a level subjects as well i think.
    yeah definitely go see what the head of department has to say. I dunno what else to suggest though cos it's hard if your school does literally not allow any choice.

    it's a well-known fact that nobody likes decision maths
    But am I right in thinking people who want to do computer science at university would like decision maths? After all, they are the only applied modules which are related to their course.

    (maybe not D1 since its considered 'too easy', but what about D2?)

    My college makes single maths people do S1 and D1 :hmmm:
    Because I'm doing AS further I get to do M1 too though, which is better. And DE, which is good, because calculus kicks the applied modules' collective ass.

    ramble over. Yes you're right to want to do all mech modules, but thank your lucky stars you don't have to do fecking decision.

    we have to do C1, C2 & D1 at AS Single Maths. C3, C4 & S1 at A2 (though you can take M1 if you take physics as an a-level already).
    further maths take FP1, FP2, M1 & 3 others.

    (Decision is heaven - not really maths (you just pretend to be a computer XD))
