    I have just finished GCSEs and I will be doing A-levels in September. I have chosen Maths, Further Maths, Computer Science and Physics.
    I am wondering due to the structure of maths and further maths, would it be better for me to do the whole maths A-level in 1 year instead of spreading it across the two.
    If it helps I will be picking mechanics as my module.

    It's what your school will 'allow' you to do. To be honest if you're doing maths and further maths it doesn't really matter what order you do them in does it (obvious exceptions).

    Well, nothing stopping you, it's up to how you handle the workload. I did it and it wasn't awful just exhausting at first but got gradually better.

    I'd do them at the same time. Further maths has been hard enough for me spread over two years, can't imagine having to do it all in one, even with no core maths in the second year. In the second year, there's a lot more overlap in further maths and maths (integration and differentiation mainly), so you get a lot of practice in further maths that really helps in core as well.

    It depends on your maths ability in my opinion... it's far from impossible done alone or with one other as level subject, but if the option to do it in one year is available,you will need to consider the workload carefully as to whether you can cope with the intensity/whether its worth it or not.. get yourself the a level text books you require, have a look through them and talk about it with your school/college, they will probably be able to give you tailor made advise for you personally
