    3 units for core maths, plus 3 for further maths, so six exams per year. You have to do some particular units (C1, C2, FP1 in 1st year) but the other 3 are chosen by the teacher

    You've already got an A-Level in Maths unless I'm misreading it.
    You just need another 6 modules to get Further Maths.

    Probably not if you stick with the same exam board... As far as I know people who did further maths in my school did FP1, FP2, FP3, M3, S3 and one other exam (I think) over two years. I'm hoping to do further maths during my gap year so I do wanna watch this thread as I don't know the first thing about how it works either.

    You don't have to do FP3.

    I remember doing FP1, FP2, M2, M3, S2 and D1 for the further maths bit.

    Yup a total of 18 maths modules.

    Very few people do it - cousin of mine did though. Went on to study maths at Cambridge.

    Summary:
    Maths A-level: C1,C2,C3,C4, two more applied. You have to have ALL of these to have the A level
    Further Maths A-level: FP1, FP2 OR FP3, any four modules of your choice. Like if you want to do all the FP's, you definitely can.
    Additional Further Maths: Any six modules that you haven't done for the other A levels.

    To have a grade in FM you have to do 6 modules including FP1 and FP2. While you can choose the other 4 modules.. They could be any from: FP3,FP4,M1-M5, S1-S4, D1-D3 (excluding the ones you already did at A Level Maths)
