I was wondering wether anyone else was taking the Further Maths A-level. I'm going to be doing C1 to 3 and M1 in January and I wanted to see if anyone else is being as rushed.

I wish I had. Standard maths sucks, we've done about two hours worth of learning so far this year. In total. Also, you're lucky you have M1. In my college they gave us D1, 'Decision Maths' to make maths easier for the average student. End result; lesson after lesson of Join the Dots.

So feel happy that you're rushed Razz

We're just doing D1 now as we've finished M2 (not doing the exam til June though). I see what you mean about D1. It is far too easy. The graph theory is laughable and the algorithms are too simple. The only useful and non-obvious thing so far has been quicksort but I'd already learnt that elsewhere. On the other hand, though, D2 could be interesting and it would be damn right better than S1
Where abouts in the pure side of things are you at the moment bulley?

I don't get how different schools/colleges can put different modules in for either one, how can the national scores be compared when they study different stuff?
I did a standard Maths A-Level and we did C1-4, S1 and M1. The people that did Further Maths had all of those along with a few D's (decision maths) and a few more of the mechanics.

On your UCAS application, you state what modules you are doing for your A-level I believe, (at least for further maths that's true, I think) so that is what it really goes on. Unis look a lot better on those who got a B with high-powered modules than someone who got an A on just doing the ones and twos

Bloody hell! We're only doing C1 and C2 in January!

Although, I do have them both and a Physics exam on the same day...;_;

I've got C1 2 and a chemistry in one day but fortunately, the maths ones are easy so its just the chemistry I have to worry about

I did further math for A level last year(AQA) and am doing math at uni now. Further maths is a great subject and will help loads if your doing anything maths related for uni.

Definitely. If you're doing anything Physics or Maths related for uni, and your school offered Further Maths as a choice, the uni's might very well ask why you DIDN'T do Further Maths.
