    This year I sat AS Level maths and further maths and I got:
    Maths- A (252/300)
    Further Maths- A (246/300)

    However when I looked at the unit results, I got:
    C1- a (82/100)
    C2- a (88/100)
    S1- a (100/1000
    Further Maths
    D1- a (82/100)
    FP1- c (69/100)
    S2- b (77/100)

    I then realised that I should have got 270/300 for maths, and 228/300 for further maths. And also, if I was to swap my D1 and S1 results, this would give me 252/300 and 246/300.
    Have my results been added up incorrectly? Or is this normal?

    The probably swapped them so you get and A in maths and fm it's normal

    They swap units to maximise Maths grade as highest priority, then Further Maths grade, then Maths UMS, followed by Further Maths UMS.
