    I want to swap to a different course at my university, and I've been asked to do Further Maths.
    I have a couple of questions that I want to ask before I do it though.
    a) I already did M1 and M2 for my standard maths, if I pick a different exam board can I still do those two modules?
    b) From what I understand I have to sit 6 modules, 3 for As and 3 for A-level. If I decide to say do Fp1 Fp2 Fp3 S1 S2 D1, can I say do Fp1 FP3 and S2 for my As (The harder modules) and Fp3 S1 and D1 for my A-level (the easier modules)
    c) Do I have to declare upfront which modules are my As-modules and which ones are my A-level modules? Basically I need an A*, therefore I need an average of 90% in the A-level modules and 80% overall. So if at the end I get above 90% in 3 modules, and below 90% in the other 3 can I just say that the ones I got above 90% in are the A-level modules?

    Thanks in advance
    (Yeah I know queestion 2 and 3 are almost the same, but still..)

    You don't decide which module goes where. There are automatic aggregration rules.

    You don't have to study FM with the same Awarding Body you studied your normal A Level with but I would stay with the same one if you can.

    You cannot do M1 and M2 again. You can do M3 if you wish.
