    Sounds like ******** to me. I took Applied A and then further but I dont' see why pure then further shouldn't work. He if definitely wrong if you don't certificate pure maths this year, then the module combinations don't matter.

    Firstly Just to be clear I assume that your Pure maths A-level is P1-P6.
    If so then you have a couple of options.
    (i) dont cash in and take 6 more modules next year (say m123,d1,s12) and the exam board will award you Maths and further maths A-levels.
    (ii) Cash in your Pure maths Now, And believe it or not your bank is cleared, and You can now sit the P456 again and Use them for a second A-level (FM). The only thing that needs checking is as to whether you can include 2 AS ( M1 and S1) in a FM qualification, I dont think that you can but need to see the edexcel spec again.

    thanks
    it says ... fp1 , fp2 , fp3 and three applications units .... i think even AS Modules from statistics and mechanics apply then ...
