    I really want to take additional further maths but none of the local colleges/ sixth forms offer it so i have decided to teach it to myself and am fairly confident in this decision (I taught myself most of FSMQ maths). However, to take this i would need to do it via the exam board edexcel yet my maths and further maths A levels, which i am being taught at the sixth form, will be examined via AQA. ( I have no control over which exam boards I do and AQA doesn't offer further additional maths)Will this mean i am ineligible to take additional further maths via edexcel? As from what I understand, it is all of the modules you haven't done in maths & further maths and this might not work out if I am using different exam boards.

    You can take maths with one examiner and further maths with a different one but you need approval of the specific units from the second examiner.
    I have no idea if you can take AFM with Edexcel if you are taking maths and FM with another examiner. I suggest you contact Edexcel either directly or through your school exams office to enquire.

    Additional Further Maths is a great way to learn more maths content before you go to do Maths at uni. I did the AS in my second year if sixth form (although I do wish I did the full A level, but time was short at the point of me deciding). When I did the AS I had to self teach all three modules, which isn't too difficult if you've got the determination to finish it. Self teaching a subject is, again, a good way to prep you for uni.

    Edexcel is a good exam board and I'm sure if you call them and explain your situation with AQA then they'll accommodate you. The only thing is that you've decided quite late to do this so there may be a late entry fee to pay. Speak to your head of maths and see if they'll enter you for the qualification.
