    Hello everyone,

    I'll start my A levels on this September and when I was choosing my subjects I ended up with math, physics and chemistry because the head of sixth form told me I shouldn't take to many subjects but I still have a desire to take German and Further math. He told me that the Further math class happens on the same hour as some group( I can't remember what it was) and as a foreigner student it would be interesting for me to do so.. Further math or this social thing that I can't remember ?
    I'm pursuing a Physics degree.
    The reason I need some help is because I don't know about how this system is organized

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    I wouldnt recommend taking too many A-Levels as it gets really though, if you want to do physics, fmaths could help, but fmaths is really really really next level diffilculty, if you're not planning to give most of you're time, leave it, it is not compulsory for your degree but only complementary, and I did: Maths, Fmaths, German, Econ, and Dutch, absolutely hated Fmaths but loved German, try looking at your gcse results if it helps x

    if you're good at maths (a* gcse level ideally) i'd do further maths as it will really help you in a physics degree

    Yes definitely take further maths if you enjoy maths- I believe that further maths would actually be just as if not more beneficial than physics a level to a physics degree (the physics a level I took required effectively no more than waffling and no precise understanding maths would likely give to you). In the long run the maths would be more useful anyway for problem solving solving side of things (even if fm alevel still pretty basic technique practise). If you enjoy it enough it should be little extra work anyway, and will make any maths used in other subjects pretty trivial
