For starters, I plan to study AS Further Maths in my A2 year. I'm currently studying Maths w/ Stats, Economics, Computing and Government & Politics. I regret not taking Further Maths, but I guess I can't go back on that. Currently blazing through Economics, easily getting high marks without any real continuous effort. It's a great subject and I enjoy Maths, that's why I want to do it. The top5 Uni links to wanting to become a banker.(Original post by Sub Zero)
you don't do further maths and want to do economics at UCL (a top 5 university for economics)? pretty much everyone i met at the open day for economics last week that i met had further maths as one of 4 a-levels, and with a 5th AS as well. not to say there aren't people without further maths, but the A* requirement in maths is a must regardless of which course and you must do atleast two other respected subjects, preferably one of which is economics.
econ & stats is easier to get into but you will need extremely high module marks to get in if you don't do further maths and only have 1a* at gcse.
what are your subjects? have you considered self-teaching further maths to AS-level?
How are you celebrating?
