I am a university student studying medicine. I took Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology at college and achieved A* A A A. I was offered to take Further maths at college as my GCSE results were outstanding as well. I am retaking a year at medical school due to illness which prevented me from attending over half the year in my second year which was last year. I know I am going to pass this upcoming year of medical school with flying colours and want to do some other things to challenge myself. My brother is taking AS further maths and I am going to be tutoring him the A level maths parts of the course as I did very well myself. He is going to be tutoring me the FP modules, and extra modules I didn't take at college, to help him learn. (teaching is the best form of learning right?)
So my long winded questions is...
Can I get credit for an AS / A level in Further Mathematics by using the grades from my A level Maths modules, and sit the modules I haven't yet taken such as the FP, and stats, to end up with an extra A - level in further maths?
Any responses are appreciated. Am I too old? (I'm 20, 21 this academic year) Would I have to re-sit the core modules in order to get the further maths qualification? How do I arrange to sit the exams? Would I be the equivalent of a home schooled student? Would I have to be attached to a college even though I wouldn't be attending as I am at medical school?
Can I take AS Further Maths without attending college? Watch

You can do this as a private candidate provided there is no coursework. I don't think you'll need to resit anything. My question is why do you want to do this? How will it affect anything you'll ever do henceforth? If I were you and had some spare time I'd spend it working or doing research that's relevant to what you want to do in the future.
