# Why are you studing Further/Additional Maths?!

I just wondered which people are actually studying Further Maths/Further Additional Maths with the intention of studying it at Uni.

I'm studying Double Maths, for my passion - but I don't want to study it further (not on its own anyway!), after A-Level that's it!!! I'm off to study something else!

I hope to do a Mathematics and Philosophy course at either Oxford, Warwick or Bristol. U kinda need further maths to get in those universities...

Though that's not technically true. I do it because I can (just), and because it's a very very good subject to have.

Well, I'm not doing F.Maths, but wish I was! I think most people do it because either they need it for their chosen degree or otherwise they're just passionate about the subject.

I'm studying it because it's going to be really useful for Computer Science at university. Plus I enjoy the subject and Single Maths is too easy.

I'd suggest that when you spend less time doing maths (as us single maths people do), it is considerably harder to do well in maths than if you are taught twice as much and spend twice the time doing one subject. I know you do twice the modules but you should be advanced enough in your maths ability to handle that if you do spend twice as long on it surely.

Some people are naturally going to find Maths easy even if they only do single maths, whereas someone who's doing further maths may still find maths v.difficult! It depends where your strengths lie.

Mik1a isn't currently studying F.Maths at the moment, so I think he is in the position to talk. He will be taking F.Maths next year in his 2nd year of 6th form and therefore has experienced just doing single maths.

People often hesitate to take f maths as a full a level because at the start of sixth form they are unsure how hard maths will be.

Does irritate me that some people do F.Maths as an extra A-level and get an A based on combining 6 easy modules and then they decline the F.Maths grade because they got an E or something. It leaves a nasty taste in my mouth to think that I have worked my ass off (this year anyway) and still might not get an A when they are getting it simply because they have done a larger number of modules.

This is why I didn't do F.Maths (now I wish I had). I still don't like the comments I get from F.Maths students when I mention that I only do single maths, I think they feel superior because they do more of it or something. Still, when we compare results on tests / modules etc... I usually get my revenge.

Out of interest would you say most of your f maths people will get an A at normal maths a-level?

I have a mate who wouldn't agree with that.

I have 5 really good friends in one of the F.Maths classes and our of those...1 will get AA, 1 will get AB and the others will get something like BC, CC and AD. In my college they will let you do F.Maths based on you simply asking to do it so many people who want to look clever do it and end up getting poor grades.
