That will only get you Alevel Maths + AS further Maths, an example is what I'm taking

P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6
M1, M2, M3, S1, S2, D1

You need to do 12 modules to get 2 Alevels.

So perhaps you might do P1 -6, M1-4, and S1-2.

well basically, to have passed A level maths, you must have had M1, S1, P1, P2, and P3. P4,5,6 are technically further maths modules, with 4 and 5 compulsory, so these will DEFINITELY go into your further maths. you thus take any of the remainding S2,3,4,5,6 or M2,3,4,5,6 and they will be shuffled around, with the computer that calculates your final grades putting the lowest total possible total that gives you and A in Single maths, and bundling everything else into Further.
