    I was just wondering, because my friend said that in Further Maths you do the whole standard maths course in one year (and then if you drop it at AS you have a Maths A level) but then in the second year you do even more stuff on top of that to get your Further Maths A level...

    But then everybody on here is talking about doing Maths and Further Maths as two seperate subjects :confused:

    Could somebody please tell me whether they're seperate or not?

    They're separate
    In maths, at our school, we do S1, C1, C2 this year

    With Further maths, they do something like D1 (Decision), FP1 (further pure 1), and FP2 as well I think
    basically, they do extra on top of the c1 and c2

    they are separate, but some of the modules are interchangable, as is some of the content
    some schools will do A2 maths in y12 and A2 FM in y13, some schools will do AS maths and FM in y12 and then A2 maths and FM in y13

    They're seperate, but they're taught in a slightly different order in different schools. In my case it's the same as you, we do most of the AS/A2 Maths in the first year, and the AS/A2 Further Maths in the second year.

    They are one subject in the sense of one discipline
    they are certificated separately; but applied modules are interchangeable, and they can be studied together or one after the other.
