    I am aware of the basic system of switching the modules around to maximise grades but I am an unusual case and I am not sure where I fit in. Last year I just did AS maths, this year I was planning to do A2 maths and AS further maths but the January exams went so well I have decided to self teach a load of modules and do all of further maths. I have done C1, C2, C3, FP1, M1 and M2 and am entered for C4, D1, D2, S1, S2, FP3 in the summer. The problem is that my uni offer is an A* in maths and an A is AS further maths. I know to get an A* in maths I must average 90 in core 3 and 4 which should be ok. My core maths module scores are really high so my lowest applied modules will probably end up being used for maths. I scored 100 and 96 in M1 and M2 and 88 in FP1 so as long as I don’t fail two other applied modules I should get the require A in Further maths AS. But I am worried that my scores will something like C4-90 D1-65 D2-65 S1-65 S2-65 FP3-65. Is there any system to ensure a maximum AS Further maths score in my situation? If the above happened using 2 of the 65s for maths I think I would have enough to get an A* and an A in further maths AS. I would get a C or something in further maths overall so I am scared about how the modules are arranged between AS further maths and A2 further maths. Hopefully they do their moving around of the modules and then stick all of the top scoring fm modules into AS and the lowest into A2. None of my teachers know if this is how it works. Hopefully it won’t be an issue as I do much better than this but I don’t want to put my place at risk in any way because it is much more important than getting the whole A level in further maths.

    A2 Further Maths is not a qualification in itself. The 6 modules that are not used in your A level Maths are all put together into A level Further Maths.

    As far as AS Further Maths goes, it has to include FP1 and any two other modules that are not used in A level Maths.

    The exam board will move the applied modules around to maximise your grades.
