    1. whether I could drop out of uni, stay in my Uni city and teach myself Further Maths while having a part time job, then reapply? 2. How easy is it to take A-level exams as an external candidate? 3. What do you think unis would think of this? 4. Am I being completely crazy?!?
    1. This is perfectly possible.

    2. Fairly easy. There are lists of external exam centres on exam board websites but in my experience you would be better off just phoning local schools and asking them directly if they could enter you as a private candidate.

    3. I doubt they'd have any opinion on it. They certainly wouldn't think badly of you.

    4. No, not if you don't enjoy the non-language part of your degree (which as you say takes up a great deal of time). There are student finance implications to dropping out, you would have used up 2 years of your loan entitlement which means you will have to fund the first year of any future degree yourself. Is that going to be possible? If not, would you consider doing an Open University degree? You could transfer your existing Spanish course modules to the OU and do a combined Maths and Spanish degree (OU language modules are just language learning, no culture or literature).
