Hi there, I was thinking of applying to Cambridge for maths this year, but I wanted to ask about further maths.

Would it be possible to complete the whole a level in one year, because my school didn’t offer further maths when I applied in year 12, and they weren’t very helpful with doing the extra a level. However I asked this year, and they are allowing me to do it and willing to pay, I just wanted to ask for any advice.

possibly yes, but you'd have to put alot of work in

we do 9 hours of further maths lessons plus 5 hours (roughly) of homework and revision every 2 weeks over 2 years to cover the course

so by that reckoning if you learnt at the same pace as my class (you could maybe manage to go a bit quicker if it's just you learning it independently) it would be about 14 hours of work a week to do it

it also gets very hard in the year 2 pure stuff

Yes, it would be possible. Many schools already run Further Maths so that it's completed in one year, and from personal experience you could probably pull it off in only a few months if you worked really hard.
