    I've been choosing 3 A-levels : Biology/Chemistry/Maths and I want to know if I can take Further Maths as a fourth subject. I really love maths but I don't know if this is possible as I know this subject is usually available in 2nd of As or does this depends on my school/college?

    It depends on your school/college; you need to ask them. Many places offer AS further maths in year 12 and A2 further maths in year 13. If you really love maths, why do you not want to take physics?

    Id ask your school if they do it first before thinking about paying for anything.
    I know at my old 6th form, the people who wanted to do maths and further maths where put in an accelerated class where they did all of a-level maths in year 12 and all of a-level further maths in year 13.

    I'm not sure yet because I didn't ask any teacher. In case they won't take for 1st year, does anyone know what the reason would be like? I know most of the school give you the oppurtunity to take further maths in the 1st year.

    The majority of sixth forms recommend you take four AS levels in your first year, and three A2 levels in your second year. This way, you can take further maths to AS and then chemistry, biology and maths to A2
