How hard is it to study AS Further Maths at home, alongside AS Maths at school? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I applied to study double maths at my sixth form, however because I'm not planning on studying maths at uni (computer science for me) they put me on a waiting list - if anyone drops out of F.Maths I might be able to take their place. However I am absolutely determined to do further maths any way I can. I've definitely got the aptitude and results for it (GCSE A* in both Maths and Level 2 Further Maths, 98.5% in mock Maths GCSE).

    How difficult would it be to study AS further maths on the side, and take the exam at the end of the year? Has anyone done this before, and if so how did you cope? Thanks.

    You've clearly got the aptitude so it shouldn't be a problem for you.

    I'd advise you to do FP1, S2, M2 since these modules have fewer prerequisites than the other modules. You could switch between the Applied modules to take in D1 (drop M2) since you're doing CS. Actually I'd definitely recommend you going for the Decision modules.

    In answer to your question, it is definitely doable.
