    hi, doing maths A2 + further maths AS. you are able to swap the modules around on results day . What do you think is better A in maths and A in further or A* in maths and B in further?

    The modules are automatically swapped by your exam board to maximise the grades in both subjects, however the maths grade is given a priority I think.

    The grades have to be coherent, hence Maths must have C1 , C2, C3, C4 but it must have either of M1, D1 or S1. Hence if you got a high mark in S1, but also did S2, then S1 and S2 would be in math. However You will never have M2 and then D1 in maths. They must be coherent hence it all depends on the AS module grades.

    I would ask an exam officer just to be sure, this is how it is in my exam board however 9/10, It may not apply to you.
