1. Hi guys question in title really, do you think someone who scraped an A* ie it wasn't a comfortable A* would be able to manage the D1/S3 course?

Replies much appreciated

You could do D1 successfully with a B in GCSE maths. S3 is a bit more difficult.
3. Depends on a number of factors really. I only just got an A* at GCSE but ended up getting 100 in S3 and 80 something in D1. D1 is easy but you need to practice the algorithms in order to secure top marks I never really found it engaging though.

I would say most likely you are capable of it.

FP2 is harder than S3 in my opinion and you would need to do that to get the a-level in FM but it is also more interesting.

If you have an interest in maths and are thinking about maths or similar at uni then I'd say go for it.
4. Can someone explain how the modules work?? I don't really get it and what's the easiest module combination for A level FM

You take 6 modules for maths and 6 modules for FM. They are equally weighted.

Maths has to contain C1, C2, C3, C4 and two others (only certain combinations are permissible).

FM has to contain FP1 and at least one of FP2 / FP3 plus four others.

Easiest combination is probably C1-4, FP1-2, D1-2, S1-2, M1-2. The applied and further pure modules get harder 3 onwards.
