    I think the ordering is as follows:

    1) Obtain highest Maths grade
    2) Rearrange/add to obtain highest FM grade without decreasing Maths
    3) Rearrange/add to obtain highest AFM grade without decreasing Maths/FM

    Thus in this case if there is an ordering which obtains A*A*B and one which obtains A*AA they would take the former but it is worth asking to manually cash in grades in order to obtain the latter and meet your offer, with your school and your uni.
    I need 480 ums for A/A*. I would have roughly 1420 in total which is not enough for 3 A/A*'s.

    You would need 1440 which isn't far off. In any case I did not know specifics for UMS and thought it best you knew all the options available to you as if there is a chance you could get into your original choice you should take it.
