    So an offer that specifies A*A*A in maths, FM and Physics with the A* required in FM and Physics is effectively a A*A*A* offer
    No, I've known several people get A in Maths and A* in FM as they failed to nail 180 UMS in C3 and C4 but managed the 270 UMS required in the best 3 A2 FM units.

    They will give you 2 A* and maximise your Maths UMS. You do not have a choice.
    That seems a bit rigid doesn't it? What if your conditional offer only depended on further maths and not normal maths, so you would want to optimise your further maths grade first, surely you can request this?

    You can request it but it won't make any difference. The rules are all here: http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/e...ce-for-centres and have been the same for the last 8 years, Universities making offers will know the system when they make offers and they apply to everyone. The only point when you get any choice is that you can choose to drop a grade in Maths in order to pass FM.

    Ah okay thanks. So in my case i got C1 (98), C2 (100), C3 (100), C4 (93), M1 (100), M2 (94).

    So in the case I even get something like S1 (60) this year for further maths and don't have an average of 90% across three modules needed for an A* in f maths, but would have the required average if M2 is put with further maths, they'll still switch S1 for M2 bc further maths grading has preference over maths ums?

    ***all provided I request re-certification before September***

    Went to go and see him today, he actually hadn't done it!

    What he did was recash my maths a level. Just to make sure, this unlocks all twelve modules right?

    He needs to have cashed the AS Maths in as well.

    For the edexcel further maths A2 what is required for an A*. I am doing M2, M3, M4, S2, FP1, FP2, FP3. Do you have to get an average of over 90% in your best 3 A2 modules and must this include either FP2 or FP3 or could it just be M2 M3 and M4 for example??

    It is your best 3 A2 units, so any of them.

    Is it only possible to re-cash in the maths a level on results day? I'm in the same position as I finished my A level maths last year (certified already) and I'm currently doing my A level further maths.

    You can do it before. Cashing-in before 21 February was free. Now it costs around £4 per cash-in and you can do it any time up to 20 September. Any centre that teaches FM ought to know to re-cash in everything again anyway so you should find it has already been done.
