    What the title says. I'd like to take statistics and mechanics, but apparently I can only take one. Would I have to study one by myself?

    I'll be taking further maths and if I'm able to take more than one option that'd be great.

    Okay I found out in further maths, you only do statistics or mechanics towards the end of each year and you have to choose, so you have to pick only one

    I strongly suggest you don't, having done both with 4 A levels in AS and a2, you will literally die. A-levels are sooooooooooo much harder than you think. Not kidding you will find it an absolute shock once you start.
    btw my friend decided to do both in the same year and he got 74/75 on c1, nearly full marks on c2 and did both s1 and m1 and 3 other difficult A-levels and he got a U and an E respectively.

    There are lots of allowed combinations. Ask at your school / college what they offer as standard, there can be timetable and teacher availability issues that may limit their flexibility. You can self study additional units if you want to, many people do.

    Thanks for the information! I really like the utility of statistics, but Mechanics is the most important module for me to study. Statistics can get you essentially anywhere in finance but I'm taking maths in conjunction with physics and computer science (And I don't fancy Decision that much)

    Which applied Maths units you do depends on your college, but if you are taking Further Maths you are likely to do both statistics and mechanics units.

    That's really useful thanks. Good to know that I can do both and have them recognised as real qualifications.
