    Due to a whole mishap with this new edexcel specification one of my options is to do further maths in a year. Ive done C1 C2 and M1 already and for AS further maths im planning to do FP1 S1 and D1. For A2 im thinking FP2 S2 and D2. Is that doable?

    Hi I am also a further maths student who finished AS. I did exactly the same modules as you but via the AQA exam board. Tbh I think we should wait until results day. If you get over 80 UMS across your Further Maths I would suggest taking it to A2 as you will build on the same skills learnt in these modules. You would probably guaranteed a minimum of a B at A2 if you work harder than you did at A2.

    Sure it is, more so if you don't have other subjects to worry about. Though keep in mind that FM has a broader range of content so it's really up to you how well you do AS and A2 within a year.

    You have to be really really good at Maths and dedicate almost your whole academic year to studying.

    Definitely doable, if you are a high A grade in maths most of the time you should be fine. If you actually enjoy maths it won't seem like much work but if you find parts boring/difficult I'd recommend against it and instead focus on other subjects or perhaps only do the AS in further maths.
    If you're taking physics I'd advise taking mechanics modules (if you found M1 alright), there's a lot of overlap between the two and they make each other easier to do so it feels like less work.

    Whether it is allowed or not, I do not know (due to the reforms) but I would hope so.

    Your option choices look good but don't forget about your A2 maths applied module!
