1. im confused as to whether you need further maths or pure maths for m3/m4/m5 because i would like to do these modules
2. What about M2 though ?
No you don't need Further pure modules to do m3 or m4 however you don't get an as level because you would have to do one further pure module in order to get an AS for further maths.

3. I think it spends what exam board you're with. I know that for OCR there are specific combinations you have to take but it might be different if you're with a different exam board. Here are the combinations for OCR.

So FP1 + M3 + M4 is a whole A-level?

You can study them if you want, you can take the exams if you want but to complete a qualification you would need to also take FP1 that would combine with your 2 best results to make a further maths AS.

For edexcel M3; mainly c1-c4 + m1 and m2 will be built upon. you will integrate and differentiate for quite a few chapters.
for M4: Fp2 is required as you will be doing 2nd order differential equations plus c1-c4 and m1-m3
idk abt m5
