I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense, but as an international student coming into England to study some A-levels, I would really appreciate some clarification.

I have already completed the equivalent qualifications to A-levels in Australia, however I am moving to the UK next month, where I hope to self-study some A-level, starting 2018 and entering University in 2020.

I desperately want to study maths, and want to do the A-levels Mathematics, Further Mathematics, and Additional Further Mathematics.

Problem is, I know nothing about how the units work, and how I would get started in studying them. The work load is not a problem as I know I have done most of it before in Australia.

I would really appreciate: If someone could list the units that I would have to study to get these A-levels, which ones I would have to be examined on, and which units would be studied with each A-level.

Thank you!

You don't do modules for maths. You will do the new syllabus. If you do the old one you will fail because grade boundaries will be insanely high due to only being done by people resitting. Also the modules question is useless since you do literally all the modules with additional further maths included.

There is an explanation of the reforms to maths A level in the Maths forum of the web site.
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5036076

The final opportunity to take exams for the first time with the old specification is in summer 2018. It is highly unlikely that, even with a background of prior study, you could prepare yourself for the 18 unit exams required or find an exam centre that would enter you for them. This means you would need to prepare for the new specification examinations for which only maths and further maths will be available.

There will be 3 examiners offering the new A level maths. Their specifications can be found on their web sites. They are no longer modular unitised qualifications but are linear qualifications examined in full at the end of the course. For all examiners, the Maths A level has 100% mandatory content. For further maths, 50% is mandatory and the rest can be chosen from options described in the specifications. You will need to find an exam centre that will accept your entry as a private candidate, you will find advice on the examiners web sites.
