Perhaps S1, S2, S3 and FP2 (or FP3) ? Probably the easiest combination (avoid mechanics)

It doesn't quite work like that - only pure modules are 'tied' to maths/further maths. Applied modules could go in either-

For Maths you have to take C3 and C4 and need 2 applied modules to get six altogether.

For F Maths you need FP1 and FP2 or FP3 plus others to make six modules.

Hi Sean I required your help however I can't send you messages you privately because you have received too many. I will post it here please can you help me? I did not want to take OP's thread

Hello,I am planning on taking a gap year and it will involve a lot of maths. I was wondering if you could answer some of my queries. I got an A (1 mark off A* in Edexcel GCSE) and B in AQA further maths. In my OCR MEI AS i got a C in C1, B in S2 and D in C2. This year has been terrible for me and I hardly touched maths however I am considered gifted & talented by my teachers. I have got the same grades this year however I easily feel I can get 90 UMS+ in those AS units. I am currently considering resitting at Home, going college or going back to my school. I have always learnt stuff myself independently. The problem however lies with C3, C4 and M1. I sat in these classes this year and found it really hard. I found the jump from GCSE to AS less than AS to A2. While I feel I can understand concepts and learn them quickly I find it hard applying stuff like C2 logarithms to C3. I was thinking about switching from OCR MEI to Edexcel as the papers seem easier. I was planning on sitting C1,C2,C3,C4,S1 and S2. I enjoyed S1 and didn't even work for it and got a High B. I was thinking what do you think about this combination? How linked is S1 &S2? Would you recommend me sitting both? What exam board did you sit? Do you think all 6 of these units can be learnt by the new year?Sorry for all the questions just feeling really frustated and low at the moment. If you have time which I doubt could you also look at this thread?http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...8#post67049868

OCR MEI is a very difficult exam board for Maths. I do not know about Non MEI.

Your combination and for Edexcel sounds good.

S1 and S2 are not really linked apart from one topic, they are both easy (with enough practicr ) in different ways as they do not follow on from eachother that much.

I do not know if you mean new year as in January, but if so it may be possible. You have 4 months and if you are not studying anything else it should be fine, if you finish a module every 2 weeks or so. Its all about practice as well so make sure you do enough.

Good luck!

How on earth did you get a good grade in FP1 but a B in M1?!

I guess you're left with little choice but to rack up the stats modules!

Imo mechanics is stupid. I would recommend S1,S2 ,D1, DE1 as all better modules than M1
