I am doing AS - level maths (Edexcel) at the moment and I also got to choose further maths the other day. Is further maths just an extension of what we learn in ordinary maths or is it completely separate? Does Edexcel also have a new spec? I am doing mechanics in maths as well if that helps.

It's a separate A level (or AS level).

I was taught it along side normal maths as double maths. It was all a bit mixed up, but it came out OK in the end!

So it'd be like a separate qualification?

Could you give me more details of what topics etc. your maths course was made up of please? :smile:

I got 2 A levels at the end (Maths and Further Maths), as well as an extra module.

We obviously did pure maths (C1,2,3 & 4, not sure if these are still called this though...) as well as further pure maths (FP1,2,3 & 4). Then I did statistics (S1 & 2), and mechanics (M1 & 2). I also did decision maths, which was a bit of a waste of time, as it didnt count towards an A level!

So I did 13 modules, and used 6 for each A level, one left over.

We didn't study anything in order; It was 'this week we're doing some statistics' then it would change when we'd finished a topic. I swear we finished FP2 and FP3 before we started most of C3!

But then I studied 'double maths' at college, rather than having separate lessons...

It's only really worth it if you are wanting to do Maths or Economics at top Unis.

If you can handle it, go for it!!
