Yes. I did a google search and found this as evidence: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/mathe...370/why-choose

'Teachers like that GCSE Maths, like other core subjects, can be rewarded with two qualifications'

It's an interesting specification I never heard of

Yes, the two methods papers give you a GCSE in Methods in Mathematics and two application papers give you a GCSE in Applications of Mathematics. 2 separate GCSEs and this was a pilot scheme so they are not common.

This is a very uncommon spec but has been accredited and is worth 2 GCSEs. It was ran at my school for the top tier students but tbh i would much rather take a standard GCSE maths course which is more recognisable. think only edexcel and AQA offer it. used to be a pilot course under AQA, but now is fully fledged.
