# Division between AS and A Level?

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
1. Can someone please explain the difference between AS and A level for the following subjects; Edexcel Maths (Statistics Option) and Edexcel Further Maths

This is for the exam which I will be sitting on 2017, so there may be new specifications.

Maths (Statistics Option)
AS Level:
• Topics (E.g: C1?)
• Topics
• Topics
A Level:
• Topics
• Topics
• Topics
Further Maths
AS Level:
• Topics
• Topics
• Topics
A Level:
• Topics
• Topics
• Topics
Thanks!
2. Why don't you have a look at the specifications yourself instead of asking other people to do it for you

I find it confusing, I don't understand the divisions in Maths. And where I can find statistics and further maths.
I removed the other subjects.
4. There are not new specifications. For AS Maths you take C1, C2 and then an applied unit (S1 in your case). To complete A level Maths you take C3, C4 and a second applied unit, probably S2 in your case.

For Further Maths AS you have to take FP1, then any ofter 2 units you've not already done (e.g. M1, D1). To complete Further Maths you have to take at least 1 from FP2 and FP3 and enough other units to make 6 in total.

The applied units are automatically moved between subjects to maximise your grades according to some rules, so S1 and S2 may not land up in Maths.

Thank you so much!
