    1) Is it possible to sit exams for edexcel mathematics/further mathematics in November? I'm going to be doing 9 modules next year so i would love to get three out of the way quickly, especially as i will have done three modules by the time i get back.
    2) Did anyone think the UMS marks awarded for the M1 exam were a little low? I felt much more confident about M1 than S1/P1 yet M1 was my lowest mark, with an 87/100. It's still an A and i'm not going to appeal or anything but that's fewer marks i'm allowed to lose at A2...

    Thanks.

    1) Yes, but only some of the modules. If you look on the edexcel website in either the specification or the timetable it will tell you which modules are available. I think you can do any of them in january though.

    2) Don't know, I did M1 last year

    I just took a look on the website under 'exam timetables'. They have the approximate schedules for the exams we just sat and Jan 05 but they don't seem to have November 04 up yet.
    Perhaps they will be put up closer to the date, as very few people take them in November.

    I'm glad i don't have to think about chemistry anymore, i used to hate going to it. Now i just have Biology, Maths, Further maths and ICT(which is 2/3 coursework.)

    Also, a good question would be, what modules should i do next year for my further maths?

    I'm already doing/done the following as part of normal maths:
    P1,P2,S1,P3,M1,M2.

    Here's what i think i'll proabably end up doing for further maths:
    P4,P5,P6,M3,D1,D2. Good choices?

    I'm going to enjoy next year, just subjects i enjoy - namely biology, ICT, general studies and double maths. I hated chemistry towards the end.
