Possible A* in Maths and Further Maths? Watch

    Here are my UMS scores from my modules. I am doing the OCR MEI course.

    C1 - 77
    C2 - 93
    C3 - 97
    C4 - June

    FP1 - 87
    M1 - 80
    D1 - 72
    S1 - 78
    S2 - June
    S3 - June
    M2 - June
    FP2 - June

    At the moment I am sitting at A's in both maths and further maths. I think the unit for my maths AS are C1, C2, D1 and for further maths they are combined as: FP1, M1, S1.

    Is it possible for me to achieve A* in both? Or only in 1?

    I heard I need an average of 90% in C3 and C4 for the maths A*, but I am unsure about further maths.

    Thanks,

    you need an A overall for your AS and then above 90 for three a2/as modules. you can swap around your modules A2 and AS to give you the best possible final a-level grade.

    Yes, you are still OK.

    The rules are:
    For Maths at least 480/600 overall and 180 from C3 and C4.
    For Further Maths at least 480/600 and at least 270/300 from your best A2 units (in your case the best 3 from S2, S3, M2 and FP2).
    The system will automatically shift your applied units around to get you the best possible grades.
