FP2 is an A2 module.

for the first year what would be an acceptable combination ?

for the AS qualification what would be an acceptable combination ?

For AS you can do FP1, plus any two Applied modules that are "1" or the "2" version of your Maths modules (i.e. you can do D2 in FM as you have done D1 already, and it'll just be recertificated to give you D1 in FM AS and D2 in Maths A2)

If you're doing MEI, Numerical Methods is also an AS module.

D1 and D1? do you mean D1 and S1/M1...

also no FP2 can't be AS... AS is FP1 + 2 applied AS/A2 modules OR FP1 + FP4 + 1 applied AS/A2module. the applied modules can be any you havent done in regular maths with 1 or 2 in the name. then A2 further can be FP2 + 2 applied A2 modules; FP3 + 2 applied A2 modules; FP2 + FP3 + 1 applied A2 module.

an A2 applied module is a module with 2 or higher in the name, eg S2, M3.

I don't think you've read the rules for this. Any 3 units not used in maths will do as long as one of them is a FP unit. The general rules ( http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/e...ce-for-centres ) say:
A candidate may certificate AS Further Mathematics with any combination of three units which does not include C1–C4 but does include at least one Further Pure unit (FP1, FP2, etc).
although there s a footnote to check if individual exam boards have any qualifiers to that.

Additionally, if you read the rules for Maths, you can only put D2 in maths is D1 is also in Maths so your suggestion about swapping them is not allowed. The regs say:
A candidate may certificate A level Mathematics with one of the following combinations of the above units:1
C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, M2
C1, C2, C3, C4, S1, S2
C1, C2, C3, C4, D1, D2
C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, S1
C1, C2, C3, C4, S1, D1
C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, D1

i.e.
D2 can only be in Maths A level if D1 also is.

Yes, the rules are here: http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/e...ce-for-centres
though you also need to check the correct exam board for any additional bits.

Okay, I was misinformed then, sorry.

so wait FP1 FP2 M1 as one AS is a legitimate combination?

It should be, but you need to double check the exam board regs. Which board is it?
