I'm not sure if any of you would know about this, but does anyone know what I need to do if I intend to go from my single maths A level (which I finished with the 2005 exams) to further maths next year, when I'm taking a gap year? The trouble is, the module system has changed since I took it - it's moved on to C1, C2, etc. while I have an A level covering P1, P2 etc.. Does anyone know what I should do if I want to do P4, P5 and maybe M3 next year? Would I have to change to the new system or something?

Yes you have to do the new syllabus I think, but the new system should not affect you as you already have your Maths A-Level. The only difference is that P5 is no longer compulsory, because it can be replaced by any other module.

P4 = FP1
P5 = FP2

There is absolutely no difference. As such I think you could just do P4 (or FP1 as it's now known), P5 (FP2) and 4 applied units not already taken.

The question is, does the exam board certificate such a Frankenstine course?
