    I want the highest grade with minimum marks for my Maths. e.g. if I get my A* in C4, then I only need to submit my lower 2 applied modules, leaving the other two higher scores to give me a higher chance of getting an A in FM, which I will complete next year in upper sixth.

    If, hypothetically, I had 100 in C1-4, and then 60, 70, 80, 90 in applied modules and 100 in FP1, I'd want 100, 100, 100, 100, 60, 70 for my Maths A-level (the lowest combination that will still get me an A*), and 80, 90, 100 in FM (highest number of marks towards FM without reducing the Maths grade.

    Didn't you suggest they would try to max out my Maths score beyond my grade as normally you might need high UMS marks to argue your case should you miss the grade. In my case, however, there will be no negotiations with uni's as I don't apply until next year.
    If you cash in your FM AS this year, the exam board will sort your modules to get you the highest possible pair of grades this year, but with the highest possible score on your Maths A level. With your example that would mean just putting the 60 and 80 with the 100 for FP1 in FM AS to get 240 for your A.

    Next year, you must make sure that your school recash in your A level Maths and FM AS as well as cashing in the FM A level as this "unlocks" the modules so that they can again get the best possible grades for you.

    I see. Still not what I'm after though, because universities will look at my UMS average for FM so I want it as high as possible now. I think I'll talk to my exams officer - maybe they can contact the exam board to specify exactly which modules will be cashed. Or could I just not cash anything and say on my UCAS "uncashed Maths A-level"?

    Would someone care to explain the criteria to get an A* please?!
    Do you need 90+ for C3 and C4 separately, or is it as an average of over 90 between the two?
    I do statistics, so what grade would i need in the S2 or does this not matter?
    Thanks in advance!

    f(x) = e^x + 2
    so y = e^x + 2

    For f^-1(x) you change the x to y resulting in

    x = e^y + 2

    Then you rearrange this for y = ln(x-2)

    So f^-1(x) = ln(x-2)
