    Hello. Is it possible to do the M2, M3 and P3 papers to gain the A-Level if you studied P1, P2, & M1 for AS-Level?

    Also is it ever the case that you cannot go on to do the A-Level papers if you have been awarded the AS-Level?

    I believe this January is the last set of P papers (last chance for retakes on the old system).

    I don't wish to retake any Px just sit P3 for the first time. I may also want to improve my M1 82/100 paper. So is it possible to sit P3 in the future with M2, and M3 to gain an A-Level?

    I said

    the last chance for Ps is this January. It is intended for resits but you could sit it in Jan for the first time, just know that it's your ONLY chance.

    Do you know why this is and/or what is happening to Mx papers? Also, will old-skool Px based AS papers be compatible with the new A-Level Px replacements?

    P is changing to C and instead of 3 pure modules there are now 4. So I doubt P and C are compatible.

    I honestly do not know if Mechanics is changing, you now only have to do two applied modules, not three.

    The problem is they've now changed the syllabus to Core instead of Pure. And as other's said this means you can't sit any Pure exams after January.

    Mechanics modules are not changing (except for M6 which has been withdrawn). None of the other applied modules are changing either, but again they are withdrawing ones like S4(?), S5 and S6.
