Hey everyone!

Thankx for all that advice earlier about being able to self-teach oneself A Level Maths. But I've just come across Applied Maths (Edexcel are the only one's who do it I think...).

Anyway, what is it, is it respectable or just complete b*******? Is it easier or harder than normal Maths at A level? Is it a combo of all the maths: pure, mechanical and stats? is it more physic-sy?

Thankx for all your comments!!!

As far as I'm aware, Applied Maths isn't an actual A-level anymore. When the new A-level Maths came into force last September the only Maths course available at A-level are Maths, Pure Maths and Further Maths and some boards offer a separate course in Statistics. The only way to study Applied Maths in any real detail is to do Maths and Further Maths A-levels, as that would allow you to do 5 or 6 applied maths modules, but you'd also do 6 or 7 pure maths units

I think after January 2006, it won't be possible to cash in for Applied Maths, you'd have to check.
