    Hi,

    I'm hoping to self teach both of these A-levels this year. Which units do i need? I heard from people that i only need a total of 15 units however on the website it says 18 i think?. Anyone know?

    If it's 18 then there are only a total possible 18 units that Edexcel do right? so i would have to do all of them i guess?

    Also what is the difference between Advanced Extension Award Mathematics and Additional Further Math. Are they two separate A-levels or something?

    Any help or experience is appreciated thank

    You would need to do all 18 modules, which are; C1-C4, FP1-FP3, S1- S4, M1- M5 and D1 and D2

    You will receive grades for maths, further maths and further maths (Additional)

    The AEA in maths is the advanced extension award, it's another exam which is based on the A level maths syllabus aimed at the top 10% of candidates.

    So it's just an award and doesn't count for an A-level? Is it based on c1-c4 then?

    Would not suggest doing anything extra unless you need to and have the time. This goes for AFM as well as AEA.
