Is Further Maths A-Level considered as one subject?Watch
Further Maths and Maths in this day and age are considered separate subjects by almost all unis and all courses. The only instance where this doesn't always hold true is a select amount of Medical Schools, however even this is being phased out gradually.
Yeah it is 2 subjects. 2 subjects worth of workload and 2 A-level qualifications at the end, one in maths, one in further maths. If you take all those subjects (5) you will either want to die, somehow cope but with no social life or just be a perfect, flawless, super organised genius 100% of the time.
Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, Further Maths would be 5 subjects in terms of workload and qualifications.
Be aware some sixth forms do make Further Maths people take 5 subjects in the first year but that’s because those places are very prestigious and also evil.
You can't do Further Maths without Maths, it doesn't make sense. How can you learn the further material when you aren't learning the more 'basic' material? It's like trying to build a house without a foundation.
I thought if you got high GCSE grades then you could just take further maths as one subject ;-;
In Sixth Form I would like to take Chemistry, Biology, Further Maths and Psychology but I heard online that Further Maths is considered 2 subjects so therefore I could only choose three subjects e.g. Chem, Bio, Further Maths ..
