Edexcel have given me the combination C1-4 + M1/2 for A level maths and FP1-3 and S1/2 and D1 for further maths.
However if they swapped D1 and M2 I would have 272 across my best three A2 units (M2,S2,FP2) , and therefore be eligible for an a*?
Neither combination would affect my grade in maths
Thanks

Talk to your exams officer and check that they re-cashed in your AS Maths, A level Maths and/or AS FM (whichever you took last year). Ask them to contact the board.

I emailed them but they didn't reply I also emailed Edexcel but they said they take a while to reply during busy periods.
However, unless FP3 needs to be in the top three Im fairly sure they've made a mistake...

Did AS maths and f maths last year and got two A's with C1/2 and M1 and FP1/D1/S1 used as further modules. Not really sure how the 'cash-ins' work!

My guess is that your FM AS wasn't re-cashed in. That would mean that S1 and D1 are locked into your FM at the moment, so the only applied module that could go in with A level Maths was the M2. This can be remedied by your exams officer.

Further to tinyhobbit's post, it doesn't cost anything to re-certificate. Your exams officer can do it tomorrow if they are working.

(Sorry, I know it's picky but) Actually it's about £3.40 at this stage for Edexcel - but as it sounds as though they failed to cash the OP in correctly I expect the school will pay.

The examinations officer from my sixth form?
So I can definitely get an A* with these module results:
FP1 83
FP2 95
FP3 83
D1 68
S1 90
S2 95

*Oops 82 M2, using D1 in single maths

Nope, you're 3 best A2 units add up to 263/300, so you're 7 UMS off an A*.

Just looked it up - £3.50 with Edexcel. My school is with OCR and they don't charge for this.

If I do this next Thursday (when exams officer will probably be working) will I definitely be able to rearrange these modules and get an a* then? I don't mind paying a small fee if it's not too late

It wouldn't be; I'd be using C1-4 and M1/D1 in a level maths. I looked on the 'further maths website' and there was an example that didn't use FP2 in the top three and was given an a* so I've no reason to see why FP3 needs to be? I'm no expert though
