My college doesn't offer Further Maths as a course due to insufficient numbers of potential takers (I think I was the only one in the entire year 12, despite it being in the centre of a large city). As I want to study maths at a university with a highly-regarded maths department, I chose to buy the Further Maths books for a full A2 course with FP1 and FP2 as my options (therefore I have books CP1, CP2, FP1, and FP2) and then enter myself as an external student in my own college to take the actual exam (I checked and this is totally fine).
Has anyone here ever done this before ? As I progress through the textbooks I realise that it's more challenging than I had initially thought (although I don't have any significant issues with anything at the moment; coming to the end of CP1), and was wondering if anyone could share their final grades and any tips they have to someone self-studying such a course with a minimum target of an A at the end of A2.
Well, i'm taking 3 A levels through a distant learning college maths, chemistry and biology without any of the GCSE foundation on them and am managing, just.
