    I am starting to consider taking 1/2 GCSE Qualifications online;
    I'm currently in Year 12 (N.I)(Year 11 in England etc.) and will have 11 GCSEs in August.
    However, I want to study a-level Further Maths and the Post-16 College I would like to go to requires an A in GCSE Further Maths - a qualification which wasn't available to me.
    If anyone has completed GCSEs online, how was your experience of learning and then taking the exams? What online website did you use? What qualification did you gain? Finally, is anyone aware of where I could obtain a GCSE in Further Maths online?

    No matter how you study the work (in class, online, by teaching yourself from a textbook) you still have to take the exam at a normal exam centre (=any secondary school or college).

    If you want to take Further maths at college are you aiming to try and take GCSE Further maths this summer? If so you need to be aware that the entry deadline is 21 February.

    Not necessarily this summer due to my other subjects but most likely next summer along with my 4AS-Levels. From what I can see, there is no way for me take them in college so if I just have them enter me for the exam and can teach myself the material. I think I would like to take Further Maths and History; do you know any websites which offer both?
    Thanks

    You'd be better off concentrating on your AS exams. I'm surpirsed the college requires Furtehr Maths GCSE, have you asked if an A* at GCSE would be sufficient?

    I don't. You don't say which exam board and specification you are intedning to follow, be careful for the history as (if yu really want to do it) you will have to find an option (e.g. Edexcel's IGCSE) that has no controlled assessment.

    It says on their post-16 application form that anyone wishing to study further maths must have A* in GCSE Maths and Grade A in Further Maths GCSE
    I think I might be better to make an enquiry seeing as Further Maths was unavailable to me... They study Maths AS and A2 in one year and the Further Maths AS and A2 in the final year. If they ask about not having they gcse I might ask if I obtained it during my first year before studying further maths would I then meet the criteria.
    Thanks for the help!
    and I'll be sure to check coursework assessments for history

    Do you happen to know any sites that do Further Maths alone?
    also, what would be my best choice at this time? Do it now? January exams? Etc
    thanks
