    So I'm thinking at studying at ICL - it basically says that I have to take further maths if I want to study computer science there. Me doing further maths is fine but I heard that the workload is incredibly difficult with just 4 AS and 3 A2. Because my school can't fund for teaching for further maths, further maths will be taught during study periods and they don't count as one of my 4 subjects so effectively I will be doing 5AS - Maths, Further maths, Computing, Physics and French. Will this be too hard? Unfortunately I can't drop French because Further maths is considered as the extra subject and I'd have to drop that.

    I know someone who did Maths, FM, Chemistry, Physics and Biology for AS and did very well, so it's definitely possible, but they had to work very hard however, if you explain the situation to your school, they might let you take one less subject if they knew you needed FM
