    I've got all of my offers now and none of them specify further maths. It's my 4th subject anyways and so it would be a lot easier to gain my needed A*A*A. However, I have basically already completed the course (Only Vectors FP3 and Matrices ) and it would be really helpful to know the information for my engineering uni course! People keep on telling me different things, please help!

    It depends how good you are at it and the other 3 subjects. If you think you can handle all 4 subjects and get the grades you may as well as it will help in your uni course and as you've basically completed the course. But if you're in a lot of doubt about getting the grades, there isn't much point as you may end up disappointed if you knew you could gain the grades if you dropped further maths.

    Sorry this wasn't really helpful.

    Aha, these are my thoughts exactly, I just have no idea how i'm really doing in my other three right now as they are all concept based and usually I get the ideas later on and do fine! Though this year might be different...

    I just know that I'll kick myself if I don't get in because I was too stubborn to drop! But I really want to get something out of all of the work I did over the past 2 years..

    It would be a shame to drop something you are so close to completing. However, if it detracts from the subjects that form your offer(s), such that you may miss the requirements, then maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to drop it. Hopefully it won't come to that though, and that you will be able to complete all of your A-levels - you've done most of the work for FM anyway.

    I don't feel that it does actually detract from my other subjects and actually helps with my normal maths! Though of course, i'm not really taking into account general tiredness etc I suppose as I definitely have to work the most for FM. But thanks, I will keep it on!
