# Combinations of Maths Units watch

1. Hi i have recently finished my a-levels in maths and further maths. The units that i have studied are as followed, P1,P2,P3,P4,P5,P6,S1,S2,S3,S4,M1 ,M2. However i want to do additional further maths and i was just wondering what modules i could do to give me an additional a-level in maths. At the moment i am thinking of doing D1,D2,M3,M4,M5,S5. By doing these modules how would i combine them with my current modules to give me 3 whole a-levels.thanks

I think you can do all the applied modules and put them in an A-level, therefore having an A-level in applied mathematics.

I think that s5 no longer exists. Therefore it is no longer possible to get 18 modules from

D1 D2
C1 C2 C3 C4 FP1 FP2 FP3
M1 M2 M3 M4 M5
S1 S2 S3

This should be checked with an exams officer or by e-mail to the exam board.

you can't do the olde a level for maths and further and mix it with new maths for another a level. and the olde syllabus has offically ended. so i think your stuck with 2 maths a levels, though i am happy to be corected...

But S4 does exist (I think).

So it's possible to get 18 modules...if you do all the modules that Edexcel offer.
6. You are right (Gav). There is just enough for the 3 maths A levels.
7. But since you did the old 'Pure' system:
P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, M1, M2, S1, S2, S3, S4 (two full A Levels)

Now you'd have only: M3, M4, M5, D1, D2 [S5 no longer offered] - and thats only 5...
You could however cash in for AS Further Maths (Additional) having done just three of the units above (eg: D1, D2, M3)

I looked on the back cover of my S2 Heinemann text to get the module list which I posted above. For some reason, on the back of this latest S2 text, there is no S4 text listed! But S4 does indeed appear in the Edexcel spec.

If you can forgive a mole from getting confused, GAHHHHHHHHHHH, does it exist or not, one edexcel report said they got rid of it, and now this! Lordy me
10. what i've found out so far is that all the modules from the old syllabus will be available but only for the coming January 2006 exam term. After this examination period modules such as S4,S5,S6,M6 will no longer be offered.
11. Just received an e-mail from Edexcel, they advised me to contact my centre of education....I mean that is just bloody stupid!
