# Ocr mei maths module as further maths arrangement helppppp watch

1. This is my situation guys,
I've got an A in A-level maths with C1 C2 C3 C4 S1 M1

I want to do AS Further Maths MEI now I wanted it to do it with FP1 S2 M2
But im hearing due to combination rearrangements some modules might get swapped with my a-level maths ones.

Now AS further maths is not really a priority so whatever happens I want my A-level maths to remain at A regardless of whatever I get in the S2 M2.

Does the rearranging malarkey happen if I do AS fm? Would some modules get swapped with my A level maths modules?

They will always arrange them so that you get the highest grade available to you from your module marks, but they're less concerned about UMS.

The combination will either be (S1, M1), (S1,S2) or (M1,M2). Other combinations wouldn't be allowed in A-level Maths, so they wouldnt use them just because you're also doing further.

If there's more than one way for you to get an A grade, they will use the combination with the lowest UMS, so if one combination gives you 500/600 and another gives you 480/600, they'll take the 480.

This would then leave you with some decent modules to use in your Further Maths.

So if I get lets say something low for M2 and S2 say D and E respectively, my maths A level grade A would still stay intact?
6. Is your A level cashed in? If it is, the grade won't change.

Otherwise as the poster has said they will maximise your grade in A level subject to the restrictions outlined on applied units. You can ask for a re-shuffle if you want to maximise your UMS in maths as long as the maths includes the above combinations.

Sometimes we've had students wanting a change in distribution to meet specific offers (which exam board won't know); just ring up on results day.

If, for example, you did really well in your other 5 modules, such that you could still get over a total 480/600 using one of your 'bad' modules, they'd take that. The system is more bothered about maximising the grade you get rather than UMS score for the overall qualification.

That way, they could try and give you a decent grade in Further as well, using the other 'bad' applied module, with a good one.

e.g. if you could get an A in Maths overall using your D grade in M2, they could do your maths grade from C1-C4, M1 and M2, even if you did well in S1.

That way, they could FP1, S1 and S2 to grade your further maths.

Who do I go to ask for a reshuffle ie. centre which I am taking it in or the exam board?

A level can be: C1 - 4 plus one of (M1, S1), (M1, M2) or (S1, S2).

You can't put, for example, S2 in A level without S1.
