    I already have an A at GCSE maths, which I only got by a few marks, and am being forced to complete a Further Maths GCSE with absolutely no idea what is going on. Do i need further maths as nothing I want to do has anything to do with maths?
    Even if I fail, which is definitely going to happen, will failing further maths make me look like a terrible student to potential sixth forms, where I only want to do English and RE based subjects like philosophy and sociology?
    Can I just leave it off of anything that asks about gcse grades?

    They won't care, don't bother, especially if you don't think you can get a good grade in it, focus on getting A*s in your other subjects.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
