    So I'm committed to studying an A Level in Further Mathematics at home, after finishing my GCSE's in July with a 9 in maths. Looking around I can only find A Level maths, and not further, to study online. If anyone can recommend everything that I'd need to study it, ready to take in the 2019 summer, then please do!
    I'm looking for the following :
    - Study guides
    - Revision material
    - Past papers
    - 2017-2019 syllabus
    - Online tutor or mentor that can help me.

    If there is anything else i'd need, then feel free to suggest it!

    -
    - Study guides - get one specific to your chosen examiner, you'll find details of endorsed text books on their a level maths web pages
    - Revision material - It's a new specification, I haven't seen any yet
    - Past papers - It's a new specification, there are no past papers, the examiners are producing some practice papers that your maths dept should be able to give you.
    - 2017-2019 syllabus - you will find the specifications on the AQA, OCR and Pearson/Edexcel web sites. There are differences between examiners for the optional content of further maths.

    Can you give me some sort of idea on how the optional content works?

    In addition to what's already been mentioned, the TSR maths forum is very useful for getting free help whenever you like. Many students over the years (including myself) have used it when self-teaching further maths.

    Half of the further maths content is mandatory and is the same for all examiners. You can choose what to study for the other half from options specified by your examiner. What you choose will depend on what you want to do next. The specifications will tell you what your choices are.

    Okay awesome! Thanks. Is it a bit like GCSE Geography? Where you choose certain units from certain sections?

    Sorry, I don't know enough about gcse geography to compare them. You get to choose whether you want to study more pure maths, more mechanics, more statistics or some decision maths. Have a look at the specification for a detailed description of your options.
