    I'm having a little confusion and would like some confirmation that my plan for a level maths would be acceptable

    AS maths - c1 c2 m1
    AS further maths - fp1 d1 s1
    A2 maths - c3 c4 m2
    A2 further maths - fp2 d2 s1

    Would i also be correct in assuming every module is a different exam, and that i would have to pay the price for each module since i am sitting these as an external student?

    Thanks!

    They're fine though I think m2 will have to count as part of your f.maths. Swap m2 for either d1, m1 or s1 and you'll be fine

    It won't make much difference, as the combination of all the applied module will be swapped to ensure you'll get the highest grade in Maths than FM.

    I assume the duplicate S1 is a typo.

    The Pure Modules are fine - you have no choice. If you take all 12 with the same exam board they will allocate the applied modules in the best way to give you good grades, within their rules.

    C1, C2, M1, S1, D1, FP1 are AS modules. The rest are A2 modules
    For AS maths you need to do C1, C2, and one of M1, S1 or D1
    For AS Further, you need to do FP1, and two applied

    OCR maths specification has a good table of modules explaining this: page 6 http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/67746-specification.pdf

    the order of the applied modules doesn't really matter until you get your results. it might be that you'll need to switch them around to get a better grade distribution when you get your results.
