    Edexcel says this:

    "Further Pure Mathematics units FP1, FP2, FP3 and a further three Applications units (excluding
    C1—C4) to make a total of six units; or FP1, either FP2 or FP3 and a further four Applications
    units (excluding C1—C4) to make a total of six units. Candidates who are awarded certificates
    in both Advanced GCE Mathematics and Advanced GCE Further Mathematics must use unit
    results from 12 different teaching modules."
    Yes, in addition to this:

    "9371 Advanced GCE Mathematics
    Core Mathematics units C1, C2, C3 and C4 plus two Applications units from the following six combinations: M1, M2; S1, S2; D1, D2; M1, S1; S1, D1; M1, D1."


    So as long as you have one of those combinations in A2 Maths, you can put your remaining applied modules in Further Maths (with your Further Pure modules).

    basically,

    for a level maths you have c1-c4
    and f maths fp1 + (either fp2 or fp3)

    now, regards the 2 application units for normal maths. they must either

    both end in 1 (i.e m1 and s1)

    or

    you can only include a module ending in 2, provided that you also enter the first unit of the applied topic (i.e m1 and m2, or s1 and s2)

    i've made it sound complicated, but it really isn't

    im hoping to enter d1 and m1 to my normal maths, because i actually found m2 and s2 alot easier

    If you have done more than one stats unit then they must be kept together (except in the rare case that you do S1-S4).

    Basically you're module aggregation is pretty much locked. If you tell me your exact mods, I can tell you how.

    I myself am locked thusly:

    Maths: C1, C2, C3, C4, S1, D1

    Further Maths: FP1, FP2, FP3, M1, M2, M3

    Which is evil seeing as M3 was a whore this year!

    Same mods except S2, instead of D1.

    Nope, because the Mechanics modules have to all be locked into one qualification.

    Edexcel normally choose the arrangement for you, anyway. You can ask for it to be changed, too, if the arrangement will affect your grades.

    They'll arrange them so that firstly you get an A in Maths... so I've heard it happen that someone gets an A in Maths and a C in Further Maths with the Edexcel arrangement, and then asked for it to be arranged such that they got a B in both.

    Where did you see that?
    If you did AS Further Maths with M1 to M3 then that wouldn't be possible.

    I'm talking about a full A2.

    (Original post by Edexcel Maths Specification)
    9371 Advanced GCE Mathematics
    Core Mathematics units C1, C2, C3 and C4 plus two Applications units from the following six
    combinations: M1, M2; S1, S2; D1, D2; M1, S1; S1, D1; M1, D1.

    9372 Advanced GCE Further Mathematics
    Further Pure Mathematics units FP1, FP2, FP3 and a further three Applications units (excluding
    C1—C4) to make a total of six units; or FP1, either FP2 or FP3 and a further four Applications
    units (excluding C1—C4) to make a total of six units. Candidates who are awarded certificates
    in both Advanced GCE Mathematics and Advanced GCE Further Mathematics must use unit
    results from 12 different teaching modules.
    Since you are locked to one of the combinations that they have stated for Maths (in my case S1, D1), then the other 3 must be locked to Further Maths.

    The question is why are those 2 locked for normal Maths?

    Because of the modules I have chosen. M1 - 3 have to be put together, so my other two must be put where this is "space" for only two mods. i.e. regular maths.

    Do you mean that you have already cashed in A2 Maths with S1 and D1?
    Because at our school we don't cash anything in until the end of year 13.

    No, nothing has been cashed in, but because I have taken M3, I have to keep M3 with M1 and M2, which means I can only put my mechanics modules in an A level where there are 3 spaces left...that is, further maths.

    I can't see anything where it says that you have to keep M3 with M1 and M2.
    Also, it would simply be impossible if your applied modules were M1-M3 and S1-S3.

    I don't know why, but when we were sorting module aggregation at school we had an Edexcel document explicitly stating those combinations which are allowed and which are not.

    Which incidentally a friend of mine has, because he isn't doing FP2.
    I don't think you have to keep M3 with M1 and M2, if you put it in FMaths. I think the only regulations are for normal maths where the 1 and 2 have to be the same type of applied maths.

    Ah well, I guess we'll find out in August.
