Can you clarify? You have to do A level maths with A level Further Maths; you can't just do FM, they're two different subjects. You'll have to do both as the new spec now, as there is some changes in the content.

No. You can't be awarded an A level in old specification further maths without completing the old specification maths A level. You can't do old spec AS FM unless you complete at least old spec AS Maths.

You can do new spec maths and new spec AS further maths this year.

You could, as aceplayyti plans, do old spec maths this year and new spec further maths next year. In the new spec the qualifications are independent of each other. AQA, Edexcel and OCR have all confirmed this is ok (though there will be some gaps in knowledge due to spec differences that might need to be addressed)

Ok thank you. Can you take different exam boards for Maths and Further Maths?

Why would you want to?

You could do it with old spec but your exams office should confirm your unit choices are acceptable to your FM examiner and you won't be able to mix and match results to optimise your grades.

I haven't asked about new spec but since they are now entirely independent qualifications with no overlap of content I can't see there's any reason to prevent it.

Thanks. I was asking about the new spec.

I don't understand why you'd want to do any of what you are asking but yes, you could do different exam boards for new spec Maths and Further Maths.
