# How is A* in Further Maths (OCR MEI) awarded? Watch

1. Hi there, I'm really confused about how the A* in FM for MEI is awarded.

I am in Year 13 and have achieved this:

C1 - 98
C2 - 98
C3 - X
C4 - X
FP1 - 94
FP2 - X
S1 - X
S2 - X
S3 - X
D1 - 74
M1 - 74
NM - 78

I enjoy Stats and Pure maths but don't know whether I can still get A* in FM. Do I need to average over 90 across FP2, S2 and S3 and get over 480 overall?

correct
3. That's how its awarded in OCR (none MEI) so i assume it would be the same for MEI

So it's still very doable for me then?

In theory yes !!!
In practice I do not know as I do not know your ability and the quality of your study/preparation
