    Hi, I am an AS student about to sit for my Edexcel IAL in five subjects this January, and I was wondering about the differences between Further Maths (FP1, FP2, FP3 and so forth) and Pure Maths (where you generally repeat C34), and if universities prefer FM over PM, and if so, how exactly? Would FM really give me a big heads up over PM? Thank you.

    Thank you Jessica!
    You can't do maths or further maths and pure maths together and you can never repeat C3 and C4 to use them again if you do pure maths. Pure maths is C1-4, FP1 and FP2. If you do pure maths you can't take maths or further maths with it, it has to be taken on its own because you can't repeat modules and use them in a different qualification. Universities will prefer you to have maths and further maths because that will be 2 A-levels instead of 1 and you'll be doing applied maths modules as well. You can only use one result for each module, repeating them will just count as a resit so they will not count twice.
