    Further maths would really be an advantage in fact by taking further maths some universities will reduce the entry requirement by one grade but yes you can e.g. Leeds and Southampton

    It's an option but I would say take it up to at least AS (preferably do the whole A-level) if you're aiming for top unis. Also have a look at some introductory uni stuff after you've finished Year 12 just to make sure that it's for you. The stuff studied in a maths degree like algebra, analysis etc isn't everyone's cup of tea and can be quite boring at times.
