    Yes, one module per month would be plenty of time, requires some commitment though (this is on top of 3 other subjects).

    I did kind of the equivalent by self studying Further Maths in Year 13 alongside A2 Maths, Physics and Chemistry, where I did the AS modules from Sept to Dec and A2 from Jan to April.

    Which exam board would you recommend ? Edexcel or AQA? Thanks for your response.

    I'm afraid I don't know enough about other exam boards, sorry! Perhaps Mr M or notnek or Muttley79 can answer that for you.

    Yup. It's plenty of time for AS Maths. You need to be dedicated and regular though throughout the course as you're going to be taking four subjects. I did Edexcel Maths and for C1, it took me about 2 weeks as most of C1 is mostly GCSE stuff so, didn't find it hard to adjust with. C2 took me time, about a month. In AS, I took C1,C2 and M1 so, M1 also took me around 2.5-3 weeks. If S1, it took me around 2 weeks because the last few topics took me time to adjust else it hardly takes time once you get the hang of it!

    I recommend Edexcel for someone self-studying. It's the most popular so you'll find more resources that relate to Edexcel. For example, the brilliant Examsolutions website has a lot more questions from Edexcel papers.

    Absolutely.

    I did the entire mathematics A level (6 modules) within year 12. At this time in the year we hadn't even started C3&4 + other applied module yet, you have plenty of time to complete the much easier modules.

    I agree about Edxcel - there are far more good resources.

    What GCSE grade did you get? How confident are you that you can get good grades in your other three?
