    I am studying maths chemistry and physics predicted A*A*A respectively. I initially wanted to do chemical engineering, however I feel that a maths degree looks more interesting. if I take Further maths in a gap year, what unis could I apply for. Because its not all in one sitting?

    If you have an idea of what kind of universities you will apply to after gap year ask them to see if they're ok with it.

    You don't need FM to do maths at most universities. You would already be on target to meet the requirements for Bristol, for example.

    but wouldn't that mean you're missing out on a lot :? If It wasn't for the reformed A-levels, I would have picked up AS and A2

    Missing out on what? You'll cover FM topics, and more, in your first year in any university Maths course.

    any uni you want to , could even give you an advantage over other applicants as you'll already have 3 high a level results hopefully.

    As a first year myself after having done FM, the first year is MOSTLY just the A-Level FM with extra bits and bobs, alongside one or two modules where it's nothing that you've ever done before. Point being, you can indeed take a gap year and cover as much FM as possible, and this will make your transition much smoother - hence being recommended by unis for a maths course. Otherwise, if you think you can absorb FM content pretty well and pretty quickly, then don't do a gap year just for FM and go to uni straight away.
