Hello,

Does anyone know if the following unit combination is possible for the purposes of balancing out UMS (or marks)?

Maths: C1 C2 M3 - C3 C4 S1
Further Maths: F1 M1 M2 - F2 F3 S2

I am studying the CCEA specification but I am sure it would be the same for other exam boards also.

Many thanks,
Conor

I think so. As far as I know, the only requirements are C1-4 for Maths and FP1 + FP2 or FP3 for Further Maths.

CCEA might be different but this would be a "no" for Edexcel or AQA

i have checked CCEA (because some people were saying yes) and the answer is NO

They are the same as Edexcel and AQA your A level needs to have M1S1 OR M1M2 OR S1S4

I think you'd have to do C1 C2 S1 - C3 C4 M3 for Maths and your Further maths is fine

You know I was going to say "but the OP is asking about A Level"

Then I realised that his title does indeed say AS - so he is confused somehow



Anyway my point is - those 6 cannot be used as A Level maths no matter what order you put them in

I'm pretty sure CCEA is the same as Edexcel in which modules can be put where.

Your Maths A2 has to include either one of these three combinations C1-4, S1, M1 / C1-4, S1-2 / C1-4, M1-2 (there's also the Decision Maths combinations in Edexcel but I don't think CCEA have those modules).

That's very odd, they say this:

NOTE: The Assessment Unit for Module S2 is designated S4
They even name the past papers 'A2 S4, Statistics 2'.

Thanks everyone for all the help. I am not that optimistic that it is possible but I have emailed CCEA and will have a definite answer after the 10th of September. Going for a remark in the meantime as I was just 1 UMS off an A in AS Further Maths!
(Just to clarify I have just completed ASs so the 'A2 year' choices where just to give a full picture.)
Many thanks,
Conor

So Unit S4 is to assess Module S2. Makes sense.
