    I am meant to be sitting S3 but it clashes with one of my other exams. Would this module combination still get me the A2 in further mathematics.

    No - you can't do S4 without having done S3. If two exams clash you can sit one after the other - speak to the exam officer at your assessment centre.

    But I'll have to know the content for S3 anyway I just can't sit that exam...

    and why can't you do it afterwards? I've had clashes before, you just do two exams in a row. It's annoying, but possible

    An a level in further mathematics requires 6 modules, you are planning to do 2 more than needed, either drop two or take on an extra and get the add. Further maths AS too.

    That doesn't matter - you have to move up the rung in order. So in order to do M2 you must have done M1 and equally to do S4 you must have done S3.

    Whilst modules generally build on each other making it difficult to study one unless you've done the ones before, you can cash in a Further Maths A level with the combination of units that you plan to take.

    My C1 and FP1 clash as well, so I'm going to have to sit them both one after another. Same with M1 and M2.

    Thank you! Basically I know S3 already it's just I'm at university and the date of S3 clashes with one of my university exams so I had to change it.
