    I'm presuming they want to avoid FP2

    Is FP2 that bad?

    If you want to do maths at Uni, you probably shouldn't be trying to avoid FP2.

    Exactly. But you can do AS FM without A2 Maths so I assume it's possible.

    Im taking a gap year, and looking to continue my maths studies, as im looking to study maths/economics at Uni.

    so far ive done C1-C4 S1 M1 in my U6 year of college. [EDEXCEL]

    Im going to be doing AS further maths next year as a minimum ( FP1, S2, M2)

    I want to do more application modules instead of some pure ones. So does anyone know if it is possible to do AS additional further maths without doing A2 further maths??????

    Is it possible for me to do, FP1, S2, M2 AS FM, then M3, M4, D1 AS ADD. FM ???

    Any help or suggestions is really welcomed...........
    Sorry to cast doubt on your plan but...... am pretty certain that you need to complete 15 units before you can be awarded AS GCE Further Mathematics (Additional). So no, you need to complete the second A2 which must include FP2 or FP3 before you can be awarded a third AS.
    see page 10 of
    http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...athematics.pdf

    even that's with an assumption that your existing A level results under the old 2004 spec can be merged with new units under the new 2008 spec - I'm not sure about that.

    The only way to get AS AFM is 15 units. I don't know why you don't just do FP2 for A2 FM, I'm not sure about Edexcel but on MEI you need FP2 for M4 anyway
