C1, C2, C3 A2 Level: They also have the 'further pure' FP Each one of these usually rests on the one before it, as do all the pure core units. But the relationships between these areas can be different, and especially over the further pure units: Note that it has FP4 as well as FP In terms of its material, it is quite different from the other A-levels: There is some unique material e.
Simpson's rule for integration as well as the trapezium and mid-ordinate rules. And significantly, AQA has a coursework-and-exam option for M1 and S1 and beforeM2 and S2 as well as well as an all-exam option where most boards do not.
It lacks coverage of certain statistical tests and the binomial and Poisson distributions.
OCR A has the bare core of modules: There is no M5. It is a FP1-as-AS specification. C3 has a compulsory coursework component to do with numerical methods such as the Newton-Raphson method, making MEI the only board with compulsory coursework in Maths or Further Maths.
C4 has two papers, one of which is a comprehension with an article as an example of mathematical modelling. The extra modules are as follows: Cashing-In When you cash-in for one of the above awards, your individual modules marks from the required units as shown above will be combined and you will be given a mark out of for AS Level and for A2 Level.
In combining units for an awards, they will be selected in such a way where possibleso that you are awarded the highest grades possible using the most UMS marks for example: Before Januarygrades were awarded for getting the highest grade with the lowest amount of UMS marks in Maths.
This enabled units in which you got higher UMS marks to be used for a future qualification eg: However, if a U results in Further Maths and can be re-arranged, a request can be made to lower the Maths grade to bring up the Further Maths grade: Edexcel's post specification Edexcel is modifying its specification slightly for the reform, and it will be available to students taking the A-level from January and summer onwards.
FP2 and FP3 have had major changes amongst themselves too. As for the Decision units, some D1 material has moved to D2 for balance - specifically flows in networks and the Simplex algorithm for linear programming.
This means that these changes not only hit the year group for all other new A-level subjects who started the new AS in Septemberand take Further Maths either all in the academic year or over the two academic years but they may also affect the year group above those who started AS in September and take Further Maths in the year With decision maths, D1 and D2 will completely switch over from January Thus there is no change in unit code for D1 and D2.
See here for further information on the Edexcel changes.

The "Improving Learning in Mathematics" (or Standards Units) resources are, in my opinion, some of the finest ever produced. Why Study Maths? There are many reasons why people choose to study A Level Mathematics.
It might be a requirement for what you want to study at university (physics, psychology, economics, computing, and business studies prefer students to have A Level maths if possible). The PiXL Club.
