    Hi,

    Does anyone know if I can do S1 and use it to cash-in for Edexcel Further Maths?

    I am will be doing FP1, FP2, FP3, M3, M4, S1 in June 2006

    Is this combination (for Further Maths WITH S1) allowed? or should I do M5 instead?

    Thanks..

    you cannot any "1" (ie: S1 M1 or D1) for further maths, you will have to do M5! Sorry!

    Presumably you did M2 in normal Maths if you're doing M3 in Further, why not just do S1 and put that in normal Maths whilst taking your M2 mark into Further Maths?

    Total _rubbish_ !!

    P1,2,3 are fixed in normal maths
    You have to have 1 of the level 1 applied also. (either M1, S1 or D1)
    The other 2 are optional.

    P4 and P5 are fixed in further maths

    As far as i can remember there only stipulations.
    So you could have

    A2 M - P1,P2,P3,M1,M2,M3
    A2 FM - P4,P5,P6,S1,D1,M4 as an example.

    S1 would deff be the easier choice. M5 got some nasty moments of inertia i think.

    Edit: I know this because im doing D1 in my further mats

    thanks for all your replies.

    if I wanted to do what SunGod87 suggested "why not just do S1 and put that in normal Maths whilst taking your M2 mark into Further Maths?", how would I tell Edexcel this.

    How can I get them to treat S1 as a normal maths application unit, and M2 as a further maths application unit. I'd presumably have to wait till I do S1 to cash in for normal maths, instead of cashing-in now (when I do M2)?

    kitsune: are you sure the same is true for edexcel?

    I'm also using D1 in my Further Maths.

    There's a lot of detail of what you can/can't do on the website. You don't have to do all 3 of P4,P5,P6, either. [There was a previous thread about this a couple of weeks ago.]

    Maths: P1, P2, P3 and three application units, including at least one A2 unit.

    Further Maths: P4, P5 and four units, including at least three application units and at least three A2 units.

    Quoted from the NEW mathematics specification:


    9372 Advanced GCE Further Mathematics:
    Further Pure Mathematics units FP1, FP2, FP3 and a further three Applications units (excluding
    C1—C4) to make a total of six units; or FP1, either FP2 or FP3 and a further four Applications
    units (excluding C1—C4) to make a total of six units. Candidates who are awarded certificates
    in both Advanced GCE Mathematics and Advanced GCE Further Mathematics must use unit
    results from 12 different teaching modules.

    I think the question of whether it was really feasible to do P4 and P6 rather than P4 and P5 was discussed in an earlier thread. It does assume that none of the P5 content is a prerequisite for P6. The spec. supports the latter idea, but some TSR members expressed doubts.

    i was told three pure and three applied in both maths and further maths...this is what my school makes us do, but i've talked to a number of people who are doing 4 applied and two FM pure for their further maths...its really messed up, and i think edexcel will give you qualification for further maths so long as you have done 2/ 3 of the FMaths mods, be it P4-P5 or P5 P6 or P4 P6...but it'd be logical to do P5 and P4 as P5 edexcel is piss easy so to is P4, whereas P6 has a lot of new **** and you need to think more deeply about some of the questions! man its weird
