    I have collected my A2 results and have an A in maths (492) and a C in further maths (405). My AS results were A in maths (261) and A in further maths (241).

    I am interested in a course, not at uni, that requires B's in both maths and further maths and also know that modules can sometimes be manipulated to change overall grades. My AS modules were C1, C2, S1, S2, M1, FP1.

    My maths results this year are:
    C3 -98 a
    C4 -63 c
    FP2-37 u
    M2 -71 b
    D1 -75 b
    D2 -90 a

    Adding my AS scores to my A2 modules does not equal my A2 score, where as doing the same thing with my Physics AS and A2 modules with the A2 score does add up to the same amount. I don't understand why they don't add up if Physics does, and i would also like to know if there is some way to manipulate my A2 modules to give me both B's in maths and further. Maths are all Edexcel and Physics is AQA. Can anyone make sense of my questions, thanks.

    The aggregration rules can sometimes by overridden to meet a university offer but I don't think Edexcel will do it for a different reason. Just get your school to write a letter explaining it is AC is effectively the same as BB (without seeing your AS UMS marks we can't even tell whether BB is possible).
