    I have an offer of A*AA so need to get an A* in maths and an A in further maths.
    My AS units were:

    Core1 = 85 UMS = A
    Core 2 = 93 UMS = A
    M1 = 94 UMS = A
    FP1 = 86 UMS = A
    S1 = 85 UMS = A
    D1 = 76 UMS = B

    I've been told that they maximise your maths grade leaving a valid combination for further maths. I think they attributed C1, C2 and M1 to maths giving me a UMS of 91 which was an A and then put the others as further maths which gave me a UMS of 82 which is just about an A.

    In class we have now finished learning C3, C4, M2 and FP4. We have just started FP3 and FP2 but I am behind on my work and have no idea how hard they will be so I was wondering how low I could get in those modules and still secure my A* and A.
    As a worst case scenario, I'm predicting:

    Core 3 = 90 UMS = A*
    Core 4 = 90 UMS = A*
    M2 = 80 UMS = A
    FP4 = 80 UMS = A
    FP2 = 60 UMS = C
    FP3 = 60 UMS = C

    Now I was wondering if it was possible to arrange my modules like this:

    Maths: C1, C2, D1, C3, C4, FP3
    Further maths: M1, FP1, S1, M2, FP4, FP2

    That would be an A* in maths as it would be an A overall (82 UMS) and core 3 and core 4 are 90 UMS.
    And that would be an A in further maths as it would be an average of 81 UMS.

    Sorry that this post is really long and confusing. I don't know if the modules can be arranged this way but it would take a lot of pressure off if I knew I could get C's in FP2 and FP3 (even though I'm aiming for A's).

    Thanks

    You can't have FP3 in core maths, however, focus on getting 180 UMS in core 3/4 and doing as best as you can in the third to secure an A* in maths, swap FP3 for stats, and that's what modules They'll probably assign for core

    Would this be a valid combination if I were to get 65 UMS in Fp2 and 70 ums in fp3?:

    Maths: C1, c2, d1, c3, c4, m2
    Fm: fp1, fp2, fp3, fp4, m1, s1

    They prioritise maths marks over FM.

    i dont believe so, having s1 instead of m2 would, however
