Should I take A Level Further Maths? Watch
I think if you want to understand the foundations of maths more and feel like pushing yourself (especially from your A in fsmq), you should definitely take further maths. Also, if it turns out you don’t like the workload, you can always drop it In the beginning of y12.
I got a grade 9 in gcse maths and B in A level further maths, it is certainly a huge amount of work and in my opinion only worth it if you’re planning on doing a maths degree at a top university or trying to get into a stem degree at Oxbridge.
Though I might burn out so I definitely see your points. Thank you for the help I really appreciate it xx
That's very true, maybe I'll try it out for a couple weeks and ask the teachers how they think I'm doing by the end of it. Thank you for the advice xx Ooh sorry one last question, how different would you say the curriculums of Further and normal maths are? Are there things that you can clearly apply from one another (like does Further just go deeper into things we've already learned) or are they focusing on quite different branches of maths? Hope that makes sense
