    Does any one know anything about IB further maths? I emailed Cambridge to see if they preferred A levels or IB to study maths. They said if i did the IB i should do further maths standard level. I can't find out much about it on the internet. If any one does it or knows about it I would really appreciate it?

    IB Further Maths is basically IB HL Maths but with all four Paper 3 options instead of just one of them.

    Most schools don't teach it...
    I don't think Cambridge care if you can't take it because your school doesn't teach it.
    You could read up on topics that don't appear in HL though and talk about that in your SAQ when you apply.

    IB SL Further maths is the rest of the HL Maths options, and also a geometry paper I believe.

    Or you could just do A Levels and have some kind of a social life during 6th form.
