    Oh ok that's good. You know if you do further maths AS, can't you carry it on as a whole A-Level?
    yes you can but i had to self teach it so i figured it was too risky as i didn't want my uni place relying on me successfully self teaching the A2 content as well, so i just did AS.. if you really like maths then further maths is a good idea !

    pretty much all schools will just do the full A-level and not bother with AS, so you just sit the exams in year 13 and get a whole A-level
    This year over half of schools still opted to enter candidates for reformed AS levels.

    Does this mean that exam boards have already created new revision guides for the new full A-level or you still need to buy AS+A2 revision guides?
    Yep
    And more are to come
