    Why don't you have a look at the specifications yourself instead of asking other people to do it for you

    I find it confusing, I don't understand the divisions in Maths. And where I can find statistics and further maths.
    I removed the other subjects.

    There are not new specifications. For AS Maths you take C1, C2 and then an applied unit (S1 in your case). To complete A level Maths you take C3, C4 and a second applied unit, probably S2 in your case.

    For Further Maths AS you have to take FP1, then any ofter 2 units you've not already done (e.g. M1, D1). To complete Further Maths you have to take at least 1 from FP2 and FP3 and enough other units to make 6 in total.

    The applied units are automatically moved between subjects to maximise your grades according to some rules, so S1 and S2 may not land up in Maths.
