# Arrangement of AQA further maths modules? watch

1. 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
2. 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
5. They prioritise maths marks over FM.

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