Because some naturally grasp math, there must be a syllabus to better fit their ability.
Natural ability in other subjects are not [as] restricted; for example, an English question is open to all degrees of intelligence.

Because there is a huge jump from A level maths to degree level maths.
While further maths is taught (much more quickly) at degree level, it is so much better to bridge that gap with further maths.
If the specifications of other subjects (most notably sciences) keep shrinking, then there may eventually be 'further sciences' too.

I've been wondering this! I think you should be able to do 'extra' subjects or 'duoble' subjects where you can do more topics within the subject. Like Geog the teachers choose to do certain topics so if you did 'extra geog' you would be able to do double the amount.
