    You could look into sitting it privately when the time comes. You'll probably need to teach yourself the content though (or get a tutor or something).

    Just as a side note, you don't need the Further Maths qualification to do A-Level Maths. While it could certainly help a little, it's also perfectly possible to do well in A-Level Maths without it.

    It's up to you - if you want to do it because it sounds exciting/you like Maths, then that isn't a bad reason to do it all. You'll just need to make sure that it doesn't end up putting too much of a toll on you with the other subjects you'll want to be revising for.

    what year are u in ?
    I'm at uni now but I did Maths/Further Maths at A-Level.

    Further Maths is undoubtedly the hardest GCSE and A-Level. I'm in Year 11 atm, my teacher is ok and I taught myself most of it at home.
