# What module combinations can I have?

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Hi,
So I'm slightly confused after my teachers have told me something different to what I thought previously about module combinations.

So I will have finished by the end of this year:
C1-4
FP1-3
M1-2
S1-2
D1

I thought that C1-4 was normal maths and then you could have any combination for the other 2 from:
S1 D1
M1 D1
M1 S1
M1 M2
S1 S2

Then the remaining ones would be in further maths, however my teachers have said that I can only have:
M1-2
Or S1-2
In normal maths

Which is correct?
I understand they put in the modules which would be best for your grades but there are some rules and I want to know which one is true?
Thank you for any help
I'm OCR non mei by the way

If you do both normal maths and further maths, then just do 12 modules. The exam board will shuffle them around so as to maximise your maths grade and then your further maths grade. It doesn't make sense to say "this goes in maths" until after you've received your results. But in general, it is correct that you can do any one out of "S1 M1, D1 D2, S1 S2, M1 M2, M1 D1, etc..." as you've said.

Okay, thank you very much for helping me clarify
