Got my AS Results, I wanna do a Maths degree but I don't have Further Maths Watch

    I waited until my AS results to fully decide whether I should go towards a degree in Physics or a degree in Maths. Once I did get them though I decided that I'd probably prefer doing Maths a lot more since I just enjoy it as a subject a lot more...

    But the only problem now is that I do Maths, Physics and Computing A levels, I don't do Further Maths, which seems to be either a requirement or a way to lower the overall grade requirement for many unis I've looked up.

    I didn't get to take a 4th subject because of my somewhat awful GCSE grades and my teachers told me at the start of the year to pick Computing over Further Maths because they thought the workload would be too much for me.

    I really really regret this because the best teacher in our IT department left the job and we get stuck with this substitute teacher for like 1/2 of the year who hasn't exactly been supporting us. We only managed to complete 1/3 of the units we were supposed to complete in year 12 and now we've had to spend the summer doing one of the year 13 units because the whole class is so far behind in everything.

    I'm really unsure what to do now, whether to continue with my plans of trying to get into a Maths degree without a Further Maths A level or to do something else entirely

    Please give me your advice guys...

    You could do an AS in fmaths in year 13If you really wanted to do it, you could also sit the second year fmaths modules as an external candidate (you might have to pay for the exams though) and study the second year modules yourself

    Is AS Fmaths just FP1, FP2/3/4 and another applied module?

    FP1 plus any other 2 units that you aren't taking in Maths. Most people do 2 applied units as they are easier than the FPs.
