    Suppose a candidate sat 3 applied modules (M1, M2 and S1) instead of the required 2 applied modules, alongside C1-C4, how would cashing in for the standard A Level Maths course work? Is it the best two marks from the applied modules that count? Or does it necessarily have to be M1 and M2/M1 and S1?

    Thanks.

    i think you can find each of the allowed combinations on the exam boards website

    but as far as im aware as long as you have C1-C4 then the other two units dont matter what they are and the units with the highest marks are cashed in i think

    It'd be the best two, although (if I recall correctly from the specification I was reading) M2 and S1 wouldn't be an acceptable combination, so I think you're right in thinking that it has to be either M1 and M2 or M1 and S1

    Cool.

    Thanks
    oh yeah and as the other poster replied i think you cant take the '2' or '3' of a topic area without taking the '1' if you get what i mean.

    eg s2 cant be cashed in without s1
    m2 cant be cashed in without m1
    etc...

    Brilliant. :yy:

    S1 will almost definitely be my lowest applied module score. I did better in M1 and M2 so its good to know they would use that (M1 and M2) over M1 and S1.

    C1, C2, C3 and C4, together with either two from M1, S1,
    D1 or M1, M2 or S1, S2 or D1, D2
    Yep, you're only allowed M1 and S1, or M1 and M2

    Of course; the exam board always calculate it to give you the highest grade using the allowable combinations
