    From my understanding there are 21 modules in the OCR MEI syllabus but you only appear to gain certification from taking 18 of them. If one was to take all 21 would they get an extra AS?

    There is no cash-in / certification code in the OCR MEI specification for an extra AS. There are only two codes for Further Maths AS [3896/3897] and another two for Further Maths A-level [7896/7897], with the latter code of each being referred to as the code for an "Additional Qualification in Advanced / Advanced Subsidiary GCE Further Mathematics". So you wouldn't be able to get 3 A-levels and 1 AS in Maths.

    A boy in my school did A-level Maths, Further Maths and Additional Further Maths (18 modules). I'm not sure if there is an 'additional additional further maths' AS level, for those who are truly crazy. That said I wonder if you could certificate a few statistics modules to get an AS level in statistics, and then do the rest of the modules for the other Maths A levels.

    yeah, i was also wondering that. After looking at Z1-3 it seems to be that its not meant to be taken alongside A level maths. Correct me if i'm wrong?

    You can get 3 A-levels and 1 AS in maths subjects by doing OCR MEI A-level Maths, A-level Further Maths, AS Further Maths Additional, and AQA A-level Statistics. The OCR MEI A-levels and AS should not have any statistics units, which would overlap with the AQA A-level (so for OCR MEI you could do C1 C2 C3 C4 M1 D1 | FP1 FP2 FP3 NM M2 DE | D2 M3 M4).

    OCR MEI AS Statistics can be taken alongside OCR MEI A-level Maths if statistics is not taken as part of Maths. With the above combination I believe you would be able to get two A-levels and two AS's, one with Z1 Z2 Z3.

    Theoretically it could be possible to get four Maths A-levels if you did AQA A-level Maths, Further Maths and Statistics and then OCR MEI A-level Further Maths Additional, but that last change of board wouldn't be allowed, I fear.

    It used to be possible (before 2004) to get four maths A-levels with OCR MEI alone (when they had S1-6 or CIS to make a full Statistics A-level, as well as M1-6 and NA too).

    ah right ok, thanks for the very detailed answer . Understandably the way this could be done seems very awkward with the constant switching of exam boards.
