Will the workload be too much if I pick Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics. I'm now thinking to change either Further M or Physics for ICT. Which depends on if my school offers Further M or not.

Can anyone that has done these subjects or not tell me their experince with workload, and if the workload will be extreme?

If you want put your subjects and your opinion on the workload.

I've noticed that people doing Further Maths have a smaller workload due to Maths and Further Maths being ridiculously related to each other.

dont listen to the person above, they obviously havent done further maths, you need to be very good at maths and are able to understand concepts easily. The workload is crazy you wont have a life and you'll find most people in the calss will drop it

Not necessarily. It depends on how your school does it.

Either they will list further maths as 'Maths/Further Maths'. This kinda implies you do ALL of A level maths equivalence in year 12 and ALL of A level Further equivalence in year 13. - Whilst this is the more sensible & rationale approach for most schools, its obviously very difficult since 6 maths exam in 1 sitting?!

Other schools will use 2 blocks for Maths. Therefore this is much easier, but its likely you will basically complete maths in year 12.

I suggest asking your school how they do their further maths classes ^^

I actually am teaching myself Further Maths haha, but I understand what you mean Jkizer, our school does it in 2 different blocks, so they have 9 hours of it instead of the 4.5 hour per week that one block has.

I know that my year's further maths class has done C1/C2/D1, at a fast pace

The lack of coursework in Further Maths makes it much less time consuming.
