## Edexcel International AS Mathematics

Edexcel international A-level mathematics is a modular programme leading to six possible qualifications.

- IAS - Mathematics
- IAS - Further mathematics
- IAS - Pure mathematics
- A-level - Mathematics
- A-level - Further mathematics
- A-level - Pure mathematics

There are 14 units to choice from (12 for AS) but note that a unit can only be used once to claim a qualification.

We offer courses in each of the units individually so you have maximum flexibility.

An AS qualification requires 3 units (see below for options)

An A-level qualification requires 6 units

Qualification | Compulsory Units | Optional Units |
---|---|---|

AS Mathematics | P1, P2, | M1, S1, D1 |

AS Further Mathematics | FP1 | FP2, FP3, M1, M2, M3, S1, S2, S3, D1 |

AS Pure Mathematics | P1, P2, FP1 |
