Guys I wanted to ask if I could just take the FP1,2 and 3 exam only? Also I wanted to ask if I took AS level maths and did fp1,m1 and m2, could I take fp1 and m1 in the first year and then take M2 in the second year? I don't want to take the whole further maths because our school doesnt offer it and I live in hk so we dont have any help and im gonna have to self study and I dont want to do that coz im already taking too many subs (math,physics,chemistry and business) also AS further maths (FP1,2&3 or FP1,M1,M2)

You can't take FP modules into normal maths. Also you can't do FP2 and FP3 as part of AS FM as they are A2 modules. You can do FP1, M1 and S1/D1 if you wish.

You can't. Further Pure modules STAY in Further Maths, they do not mix with Core 1-4. FP2/FP3 are A2 modules so you cannot have them for AS FM. Simple as that. What exam board are you?

Pure maths just means Pure Core modules, ie C1-4.

Just go with C1-4, D1, S1 (MATHS) and FP1, M1, M2 (FM) because you can forget about FP2/FP3 if you're not taking A2 FM.

I believe there actually is a qualification with Edexcel called pure mathematics, AS it requires C1, C2, C3 and A2 it requires C4, FP1 and one of FP2/FP3. Has the cash in code 9373 and is on the Edexcel specification on page 8.

You can do FP1, FP2 and FP3 for AS further maths along with maths, it's the hardest combination though, as FP2 and FP3 are A2 modules. If you take the AS modules over 2 years, you will still get the AS qualification. If you want to do pure maths, don't sit any application modules.

Really? Well I always found Edexcel awkward when it comes to maths so that doesn't surprise me. Soon they'll probably have one just for applied modules at this rate.

Yeah. I mean, I don't know how well it is actually recognised, I assume not very well compared to maths/further maths.

How can he take 2 strict A2 modules and make them count for an AS qualification??? That makes no sense as 66% of the modules in that combination would be counted for A2. Unless Edexcel is just being extremely awkward with this.

I agree that they are being weird with this, on the spec it says for AS FM:
Compulsory Units: FP1
Optional: Any (excluding cores)

Please don't give out incorrect information.

Pure Maths A level consists of C1 - 4, FP1 and either FP2 or FP3.
AS FM can be FP1 - 3.

These are true for OCR as well as Edexcel (I haven't checked AQA.
