I take Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. I plan to study Natural Sciences at Cambridge but a lot of their options for the first year want 2 science subjects, not just one. Can further maths compensate for the other? I plan to take Physics, Materials and Earth Sciences

You should be fine with those subject options, provided you are willing to brush up on a little basic Chemistry (e.g. balancing reactions, mole calculations, electrochemistry) for Materials Science. Many Colleges will require an A* in Further Maths if you don't have 2 sciences.

I see, I'm planning of doing Earth Sciences, Materials and Physics. I'm probably going to focus on Physics in the years after that.

Also, if you don't mind me asking, the Cambridge website says the entry requirements for Earth Sciences is 2 science A levels while the NatSci website says you need 2 science/math subjects. Which one do I listen to? I also got a 9 in GCSE geology, would that help me? Considering they say the course is designed for beginners.

That's fine - you can manage Earth Sciences without Chemistry A level.

Maths and FM are usually considered science subjects.
