    What's your opinion on the IB?
    I have no opinion on the IB since I have never taught it - sorry

    Because since being in year 7, I've wanted to do 5 plus I don't want to let any of the subjects go, I'm too attached to them.
    Unless your school prescribes otherwise, it would make more sense to drop General Studies and concentrate on your "real" subjects

    Yeah, I've tried to convince my head of sixthform and head of house to let me drop a subject that doesn't count for anything Perhaps they'll let me if I propose doing full A level maths instead!

    It's possible but it will be intense.

    I think it is possible but a lot of C3 and C4 depends on C2 and you tend to do C2 in the latter times.
    Whatever applied unit isn't depended really. If you're doing FM I guess it should help but most of it doesn't relate to the core modules of normal math A level.
    Personally I wouldn't do maths a level within a year since A level depends a lot on As so unless you get your head about AS then I guess it's alright.

    C1-4 s1 m1 is very doable in 1 year. I wouldn't do FM in the same year tho. You need bits from C1-4

    Hi there, I want to inow if it's possible to do A level maths fully in one year? This is in conjunction with Further Maths, chemistry, physics, german and general studies!

    Thanks!
    Depends how good you are at maths but should be possible. Depends on what your optional modules are, a little. The core modules aren't overly difficult, neither are the optional ones normally. Just put the work in and discuss it with your teachers as they have to submit you for exams and you need to work out your schedule; whether to do two or three maths exams in January.

    There aren't any January exams any more, are there?

    Why on earth does any school make pupils do General Studies? Every time I have seen it mentioned in a prospectus or on a university website it is preceded by the word "Excluding". It seems to count for nothing in almost all cases, certainly for someone taking science A levels. Maybe some course somewhere values it, but it will be rare. I certainly wouldn't devote any time or thought to it. Throw a few uni websites at them as evidence and ask to drop it.

    A boy at my son's school this year got A* in maths, further maths, additional further maths, either chemistry or some other maths A level I think they made up for him, and physics. He's clearly unusual (to put it mildly, I think the guy dreams in equations to be honest), but it can be done. But he did all of them over two years, not one and then the other.
