    I started the new maths syllabus in Sept (C1, c2 and m1) and have just taken my AS level exams in that. If I continue maths to A2, could I take 3 more modules and make up AS further maths? For A2 maths I would take c3, c4 and m2.

    Could I make up the AS Further maths with m3, m4 and s1? Or are there more pure modules I would have to take?

    Hope someone can help!

    You must take FP1 (old P4) as the pure module in your AS further maths.

    Mind you, most peopel do AS and A2 further maths in year 13 - i did normal maths A-level in year 12, so it works out fine

    You can defintely do Further Maths AS Level with only Maths AS Level behind you.

    FP1 only requires C1 and C2.

    so a AS in further maths would be like:
    FP1, M3 and M4

    He could consider FP1, S1, D1. It will expand his knowledge of mathematics, rather than concentrating solely on pure and mechanics.

    Plus, they are classified as '1' modules, which are far easier than '3' and '4' modules.

    FP1 assumes knowledge of C4

    Haha! I wish! You definitely need C1-C4 to realistically do FP1.

    i dont think so - cos i did FP1 this year and havent done C3 or C4. ull need C1 and C2 but not the other 2.

    Don't you need to know more adanced methods of integration (e.g. WIth trig functions), as well as integrating seperable variables? And implicit differentiation? I'm sure you need it, because I sat P4 in january and did need P3.

    i think the new syllabus is differnet to the old one. cos ive never done advanced methods of integration etc but i sat FP1 in june.

    Can't anyone back me up? The syllabusses are the same, because it says both FP1 and P4 on current papers (i.e. Either can sit them). I distinctly remember having to use P3 time and time again! This is going to do my nut in now :-).

    This is the very paper I sat: http://math.mdsalih.com/Data/Edexcel...20Jan%2005.pdf

    How would you go about doing questions 3, 4(a) and 6(a)? You need to be able to integrate and differentiate a trig function and differentiate implicitly to do them.

    Yes you are correct. We do need the advanced differentiation and integration methods from C3 and C4 for differential equations, and in some cases polar coordinates.
