    I'm thinking about taking both maths and further maths for my A levels. I've heard further maths is very difficult. Has anyone taken or is thinking about taking it? Is it a lot more difficult than maths? Also, do you think it'd suit me if I'm planning to do PPE at university?

    Thanks

    yeah I take further Maths and I completed my full A level maths in my AS and I can tell you this YES it is a lot more difficult than A level Maths. Actually A level maths seems like a piece of cake now infront of this
    but its not impossible if you keep at it and keep practicing you can do it

    It is harder than normal maths but I don't think it'd be particularly relevant if you're thinking of doing PPE. Although, it will probably be useful when you're doing economics.

    It is SO much harder than normal maths. If you can get an 90%+ in maths in your sleep, then you can get an A at further maths, but if you're an A not A* student in normal maths, I don't think you much chance of getting an A at further maths... so yes, it is hard.

    I just noticed your sig and that is crazy. All those A*s and As and you didn't get an offer. You obviously have the ability to do medicine and I'm sure you have the passion if you wanna do it so much. Good luck this year I hope you get offers coz yeah life sucks!

    It's very commendable to have Further Maths for PPE, but not necessary. If you think you can handle it, by all means do it. It'll be a hard slog though, I'm finding straight Maths hard enough as it is.
