Pretty sure it depends on your school whether you do further maths GCSE or not.

I am doing the higher maths course, taking the exam in yr 10 and then further maths taking the exam in year 11 and I was wondering if I need to take the higher maths exam in order to be able to take the further maths exam

You HAVE to take Maths GCSE - that is required by universites and sixth froms.

Level 2 [it's not a GCSE] Further Maths is an additional qualification which some schools offer - it's not advisable to tke it - you need to aim for 9s in GCSE MAths and your other GCSEs.

YES you MUST take GCSE Maths - Further Maths level 2 is not needed at all.

Thank you very much,

why is it not advisable to take further maths as I will have completed higher maths by the end of year 10

I don't think there are - I teach Maths and we focus on getting as many 9s as possible and enrich the curriculum in other ways. Universities like to see ALL GCEs taken together and taking level 2 FMaths takes time away from your other GCSEs which are far more important.
