with all the new (piss-easy) modules available like Decision it is so possible to do triple maths but hardly anyone does it. What a shame

dont be stupid

6 Pure
6 Mechanics
2 Statitics
2 Decision

Hence 6+6+2+2=16

To get three A Levels in maths, you need 18 modules.

YES someone ELSE is doing 16 but

I am doing:

Mech 1-6
Pure 1-6
Stats 1,2,3 and 5
and Numerical Methods and Decision and Discrete 1

If you add that up (if u can) it comes to 18 = 3 A levels in maths

god some people can be slow

Hey I am doing the guy who posted about the 16 modules. I forgot to tell that I was planning to sit P1 twice more to make up the 18 modules. Is this allowed? or will I have to sit another two more Stats modules?

you are even more stupid than the guy who can't count!!! Of course not. I am talking about another A level!! You can't get an A Level by resitting the same module over and over

Nor can you get 1 by sitting extra modules!

Christ well personally I'll be happy with a good grade in my SINGLE maths A level. Yup, just the 6 modules I'm afraid.

3 A Levels in Maths
could be either Maths/ Further Maths/ Further Maths (Additional)
OR A Levels in "pure maths"/"statistics"/"mechanics"
OR A Levels in "Pure maths"/Applied maths/further applied maths

I'm doing the first one. An you should get a qualification called AS Further maths (additional) if you are doing 15 modules (including P4)

Hi guys.

lol i actually caused a bit of controversy over my maths modules, basically my school is on OCR-A which only has 16 modules I think - hence you can only get 2 complete A-Levels in maths.

I decided to embark upon starting a further maths course during my AS year (which I'm now 2 weeks away from ending, my exams all done) and looked at the possibility of stemming to 3 complete A levels.

I wanted to go with Edexcel (cos the work is very similar to OCR, and the exams are ALL 1 hour 30) but they had coursework on S3 and S6 after I wrote a letter, so I decided to change to AQA-B last minute b4 the March deadline (they actually have 23 modules, one more and it'd be 4 A-Levels :P). Btw i know OCR-B (MEI) let you do 4 A levels, but i don't like doing coursework so I guess that option's out.....

I'm aiming to do:-

P1-P7
M1-2 and M4-6 (not M3 basically)
S1-S3, S5, S7, 8 (For a Statistics A-Level)

Just so you know, some of the OCR Further Maths student at my school are doing their P4, and my AQA-B P4 still has work from the OCR P2 on it, such as the Binomial Expansions and Growth&Decay

So I guess AQA-B spread their modules out a lot more, so you get an extra A-Level for the same amount of work effectively.....

I'm still completing it, so if any guys have any comments about it get back to me

You think this combination will work

M1 - M6
P1 - P6
D1 -2
S1 - 4

(well thats 18)

If it did, only on Edexcel or MEI I think.

I had a look at the syllabus, and basically OCR-A and Edexcel are pretty laid back about what modules you do, as long as you do "one of xxxx modules" etc.

AQA-B (which I'm on) has only fixed courses you can take, I've already outlined the ones I'm doing.

One of the problems with doing 18 modules is that most exam boards only let you do "Maths, Further Maths and Statistics" - ie. the stats modules have to be separate, but they might allow D1/D2 to be a part of that.

On MEI you can get "Maths, Further Maths, Further Maths (Additional)" which, needless to say, probably doesnt mean you need to do all 6 Stats modules. But you need to do coursework on MEI; also you can get a 4th A-level on MEI.

Also beware that Edexcel S3 has coursework, as do their S6.
