but you must have known most of it already then! you couldnt have LEARNED the whole two years in two months!!!

I did know some of it before I began but from another board, so in actual fact I did do the modules in 2 months, but yes I did know some of it before I began...

Oh and yeah... due to some unfortunate circumstances last year... I had to cram FP2 and FP3 into 3 weeks of learning... so you can imagine that you CAN actually do normal maths in 2 months if you dedicate yourself to it...

i was in exactly the same position as you.

i just took AS Maths in yr13 and managed to get in anyway.

however, it's definitely possible to do the full A Level in a year if it fits in your timetable.

the only minor trouble is that the A2 builds on what you learnt in the AS, so learning them alongside each other would require a little bit more from you than doing it the usual way.

unless they do it the accelerated maths way (which my school didn't).

best of luck.

What do you wanna do in Cambridge?

Japanese Studies.

Absolutely nothing to do with Maths I know. I still need three As though and this looks to be the best option. I was planning on doing A/S maths this coming year anyway as it would help at other universities, where I was applying for joint degrees with Japanese and either Economics or Management.

Yep that's fair enough, but beware of the workload...

I'm sort of in the same boat as you, only I've just started year 12 a few weeks ago.

I've suddenly decided I'd quite like to do Physics at degree level, but haven't chosen Maths as one of my options and the 'deadline' for course changes has passed

Still, this thread has given me some hope , guess I'll just have to ask my Sixth Form soon as possible..

Question to xinolisss

How did you manage to complete a-level maths in two months, ive just completed a degree in business with financial strategy and am looking to do maths a-level because i never did it at college i studied the first year of a-level when i was 15 but did get chance to take the test because they changed the name from pure maths to core maths. would you be able to tell me where you did this? was it at home study?

It's very possible to do A-level maths in 1 year. Also dont listen to people saying if you aint got a minimum A in GCSE than do it.. Rubbish talk there.... If you work hard enough you can do it. I revised C4 3 hours 1 day before my exam and obtained a B so anything is possible mate.

Im also in the same predicament at the moment i've realised that i wish to study chemical engineering, i have applied for a foundation year engineering at oxford brookes which i have recieved an offer for however i dont wish to stay on at oxford brookes after the foundation year, but at the same time thinkin that most unis may frown upon the fact that you have studied a foundation year engineering. would the best option be for me to do the whole A level in maths over the course of a year ?? Thanks

I'll be returning for my second year of college in september and have suddenly decided that I"ll need A level maths to get into the university I want to. Is it possible to do this in one year and has anyone done it.

I realise i may have to ask my college but I don't go back for re-enrollment for a while, so any halp would be appreciated.

Some Adult education programmes do it in one year, two evenings a week.

Check you local one if your college is not supportive.

Hi All

Sort of related.....my son got a B in his GCSE - (just didn't grasp the impact of not studying although he did get an A in his mocks). His school only allowed him to do an AS level maths as a result. He wants to do engineering and needs a full A level maths. The school won't let him do the full A level (he would need to drop another subject) - what are his options for completing the full A level outside of school? Thanks

Assuming he's taking AS maths this year then he can complete A2 exams as a private candidate next year. There could be problems with coursework only if he studies the OCR-MEI specification. You will find private candidate guidance on examiner web sites. He will study the material in his own time and you would pay for him to take the exams, possibly at his own school or at a school/college nearby that accepts private candidates. It's up to you/him to find a centre. They are free to charge whatever price they want, typically around £50 per exam but can be much more in some centres. He would need to look at exam timetables for 2018 to ensure he didn't need to be in two places at once if there were any exam schedule clashes.

As for the learning the material, he could buy and work through text books, use web sites like www.examsolutions.net, optionally get a private tutor to help (£30-50/hour) or buy a distance learning package from a reputable supplier (e.g. NEC)

[FYI it's better to start a new discussion than dig up an old dead one.]
