1. Hello,

Which modules are necessary to get the A level of maths and the A level of further maths?

2. For Maths A Level you need C1, C2, C3 and C4, then any of the following combinations of applied units: S1 and S2; M1 and M2; D1 and D2; M1 and S1; D1 and S1; M1 and D1.
For Further Maths you need FP1 and FP2, then any other four from the remaining applied units and FP3

Which board is that? Edexcel?

For A Level Maths you need C1, C2, C3 and C4 plus 2 more optional units which can be taken from Mechanics (M1, M2), Statistics (S1, S2) or Decision (D1, D2).

For A Level Further Maths you do FP1. Then you can FP2 and FP3 and also 3 other optional modules. The full range of optional modules are

Mechanics: M1, M2, M3, M4
Statistics: S1, S2, S3 ,S4
Decision: D1, D2

You can't overlap modules, so overall you would need to take 5 optional modules. This could mean that you take M1, M2, M3 and S1 and S2. The exam board would then decide which modules go into which A Level, since they make sure that you can get the highest possible marks for A Level Maths before putting the modules into Further Maths.

There are other possible combinations for Further Maths. For instance you can take FP1 and either FP2 or FP3 before taking 4 optional modules. I have heard that some schools do this

^ This, and you can also choose from M3, M4, M5, S3, and S4. You need to do 12 different units in total to get an A level in Maths and Further Maths.

8. I think, on most exam boards, the compulsory modules are FP1 and at least one out of FP2 and FP3 (or FP4 if you're doing AQA), so you could do FP1 and FP3 without having done FP2, for example. But this doesn't matter, of course, because you'll do all the FP modules you can (because they're mega awesome )
