    Hi!
    I want to take Maths, Further Maths, History and Economics, however I don't know if the addition of Further Maths will make it difficult. I wanna do PPE at Oxford, and right now I'm doing very well in my GCSEs (will probably get four grade 9s). I'm already doing Further Maths GCSE. I feel as if the mathematic crossover of Maths and Further Maths should ease the difficult, making it more like 3 and a half A Levels, am I right?

    if you are capable enough to take further maths then maths shouldn't require masses of work, also maths isn't essay heavy, you just learn/memorize concepts so revision shouldn't be time consuming. this means you will have enough time to work at your other two subjects.

    I’ve done everything that you wish to do, except I’m Cambridge for economics. Trust me, if you put the work in, it’s more than doable. If you don’t put the work in, get cocky and complacent, you can kiss your spot at Oxford goodbye

    Just out of interest, what A Level results did you get to manage to get into Cambridge Economics? Cambridge is the most competitive university in the country, you must have done amazingly. Thanks in advance
