    Twice i was sort of rejected to do further maths.
    When i went to the school and were choosing subjects, the only further maths teacher there was discouraging me in the sense that he said if i did not get at least a B for it, it would ruin my A-level grades overall. At that time, i wanted to do engineering so it was not so necessary for me to do further maths.

    Now, it's been almost a year, and i went to ask the same teacher again as to whether i could take further maths, he again denied me even though i said i wanted to do maths in university. He said that it would not be necessary for me even if i wanted to do maths in university.

    Even if i really really wanted to, i could do it the following year but i would have to repeat lower 6 if there even is a further maths course running for that batch.

    I would like to try to study further maths by myself. I would go to my teachers for help. If i find that i cannot cope, then i would not sit for the exam but if i could, why not give it a try right?

    Any help, advice and tips on this would be so much appreciated.
    I would also need help on finding notes as i do not think the teacher that teaches further maths would want to give me his notes.

    If you are in Y13 at he moment I will advice you NOT to attempt it.
    Finish your current A levels and after June if you still feel you want to do FM (and you are capable to stretch yourself further), invest another year to self teach Further maths pressure free.

    Good luck.
