at GCSE level further maths is kind of like a taster for A level maths so I guess A level further is like the bridge between A level and university maths, and yes as far as I know you need to do maths to study A level maths also

I don’t think you can take Further maths without taking Maths aswell. The difference is mainly that you do some different topics such as matrices and build on the topics that you learn for A level. I’m currently in Year 12 and studying them and the most important advice I’d give is that if you want to take Further maths, you have to both love maths and be able to pick things up quickly since it will take up half of your timetable for college/sixth form and in most places, I think they try to get you through the most of A level maths with some further maths on the side in the first year so that you can spend your second year working on Further maths at a slower pace.

well in O levels the maths is just normal and the pure math is like the math in A Levels so I think that the pure maths in A Levels is just what you will do at university and this reduces work I think at university and if you are going to take pure maths at A Levels then it would have been better you started with pure maths at O levels since when you reach to form 5 you will just pass through C1234 and this allows you to concentrate on pure maths more.....I'm planning to tale pure maths too at my A Levels
