    This year in year 12 I'm doing:

    AS

    Mathematics: C1, C2, S1
    Further Mathematics: FP1, D1, S2


    Next year hopefully:

    A2

    Mathematics: C3, C4, M1
    Further Mathematics: FP2, FP3, D2


    I read the specification and I'm note sure whether my combinations are viable for certification.

    They are fine
    I see you are not a mechanics craze

    Hmm well I'm not sure whether I would - basically the maths department don't tend to like Mechanics it seems; I'm doing Physics which does have mechanics in it, obviously not to the difficulty that the mechanics modules in further maths go into

    Im on OCR exam board and at out school we do Maths in first year then further maths in second has its disadvantages and advantages

    Maths: C1, C2, C3, C4, D1, S1
    Further Maths: FP1, FP3, M1, M2, D2, S2

    Switched to S2 instead of Fp2 cos by far easier and better for my degree at uni

    btw what exam board are you on?

    They had the option of appointing a teacher who is very good at Mechanics last year, but they didn't offer him the job.

    I'd suggest you do C3 and C4 in year 12 and leave the fp's for year 13

    I agree with you but I don't suppose he has the choice. I'm assuming that half of his lessons each year are with the single maths group.

    for AS im doing the same as you, except not S2 (im doing m1)

    I might not be doing A2 f.maths though! very difficult, I heard it's the initial of degree level maths, just like GCSE additional maths is the initial of A level maths

    That sucks bro You'll get through OK, i just found it quite good doing the maths a level in year 12 and f.maths in year 13. Makes the first half of year 13 a little easier and allows you to go out a bit more
