I want to do an engineering degree at RG unis so that I can become an engineer or a chartered accountant and for a level options i chose maths, further maths and physics. Is this a good idea?
Also if i get an 7/8/9 in maths GCSE how hard will would further maths be?

Maths itself is very difficult at Alevel, so Further Maths must be way more...

I mean, it'll definitely be hard, but if you get grades of like 8/9 you can likely deal with the difficulty. One of my pals who wanted to be an engineer did a similar set of A levels, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and I think Further Maths.

Does anyone know if further maths is good for engineering because on the webites of RG unis, they dont specify further maths but will it be good and helpful?
I dont want to do further maths if it is too hard!

Further maths is good for this, however it isn't neccessary, maths in general is very hard and many schools around my area do ask for an 8 at gcses to do it. If you think you can do it go for it, however if you feel like taking maths and another subject would be easier it would be better. Nothing at alevel is easy! Good Luck in your GCSEs!

There is no requirmnet for Further Maths, but you must have maths and depending on the area of engineering, you may need physics or chemistry.

If you want to do engineering at uni, do further maths.

It is the best A-level option, engineering is essentially applied maths.

Is it difficult? well every person is different many people find maths is more logical and easier then other A-levels. I would say if you want to do further math, GCSE maths should seem fairly easy.
