    You can do...*cough*
    Pure 1
    Pure 2
    Pure 3
    Pure 4
    Pure 5
    Pure 6

    Mechs 1
    Mechs 2
    Mechs 3
    Mechs 4 (Differential Equations)
    Mechs 5
    Mechs 6

    Stats 1
    Stats 2
    Stats 3
    Stats 4
    Stats 5
    Stats 6

    I'm pretty sure there was a Modelling in Mechanics module (that may have been abolished though)

    However from next year, MEI, (like all the other exam boards) is restructing its A level syllabus and many of these modules are also being abolished, I don't think they are even offering Further Mathematics Additional (18 mods)infact.

    Why some universities say they count Maths and Further Maths as one A-level ? :confused:
    And a school I applied last year asked me to choose one more A-level when I have already chosen four (Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry) ! :eek:

    yea u can still do further additional maths in the new syllabus- for edexcel they have highlighted AS additional further maths more so than in the old syllabus. however as edexcel only doin 17 units, u cant do a2 additional further maths (only on old syllabus)

    yep, you're quite right, there shall be 21 mods in maths on MEI next year, so you could still do 3.5 alevels I guess.
