    I understand in maths you need an average of 80% overall and 90% in C3 and C4 but how does this work for additional further maths?

    For Further Maths and Additional Further Maths, it's the usual 90% overall at A2 with 80% overall A level

    So

    S2 - 80 S3 - 80 S4 - 80 (AS)
    M3- 90 M4 - 90 M5 - 90 (A2)

    Qualifies for an A*?

    That would do, yeah. Actually you could average 90 in any 3 modules and 80 overall in all 6, because they would just swap all those modules around to give you an A*

    6 A2 modules with a 90 average is an easier way to put it.

    480 overall and at least 270/300 from your best 3 A2 units. Rules are here: http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/e...ce-for-centres
