    So i got my results and im pretty happy with them lol but there was one problem... it seems that OCR added my maths and f. maths overall module marks incorrectly or something (this doesnt change the grades though).

    I should have 495/600 instead of 486/600 for Maths and 232/300 instead 233/300 for f maths AS. There arent any combinations that make the numbers they wrote on my results sheet lol...but should i bother telling anyone about it or should i leave it since the grades dont change? all my friends just said to pretend it never happenned lol but i dont want something to happen later because OCR noticed its wrong...

    I think that you should tell them. Atleast they worked it out for you (although wrong) I had to work mine out myself.

    If it were me I would probably tell them, even though as you said it doesn't make much difference since the grade remains ths same.

    I'd tell your teachers and then write to or phone OCR to explain. They'll check it straight away as youve just finished A2s

    Did you take any earlier, lke in January? Because if they're higher then they will add them on instead of the ones you took in June that may have been lower.

    Oh, that is weird. One of my friend's A-Level maths UMS scores were added-up incorrectly as well! She got 481/600 but, for some reason, it didn't say that on her slip and she had a score corresponding to a C grade. She needed AAA (which she actually got) but her slip said AAC and so he first choice just thought she had missed the offer and rejected her. She had to ring around on Thursday: OCR and the university, both of which were very unhelpful. OCR said it was too busy to add them up properly and the university said it had given her place away.

    All is well now, but the university (Durham) has said se might have to sleep at a different college - bizarre!

    OCR added mine incorrectly as well, not influencing my grade but giving me 263 in maths instead of 277/300. The thing is I've tried every possible module combination of results, and still don't know where 263 came from!
