    As the title says.
    Note that I'm not familiar with the school system in Britain, nor do I live there, but I've spoken to a university and they've said that they want a top grade in A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics.

    (We've got a Maths curriculum that's translated for the French BAC: Maths and Sciences system, and I found it easy to study so if anyone knows the average amount of time I do need to finish the textbooks required for an A-level exam in Mathematics and Further Mathematics, it'll be of real benefit for me.)

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends which examiner and which specification you choose to be examined with.
    If you are not in the uk then you could study international A level from either CIE or Edexcel and take exams in your own country.
    If you plan to take the exams in England then you would probably choose from AQA, OCR or Edexcel.
    Although there is great similarity between them, there is difference is exam question style and each has their own recommended text books.

    A level are usually studied over a period of 2 years, knowing nothing about your aptitude or work ethic it's difficult to guess how long it might take you to learn them if you are studying independently
