    I understand you need 480 UMS in A level with 270/300 UMS out of A2 modules for an A*
    So I am studying

    AS FM
    FP1 M1 D1

    AS MATHS
    C1 C2 S1

    So whatever modules i do in A2 further maths i will need 90% to achieve an A*
    regardless of which modules they are?

    For A* in A-Level FM, you need an average of 90% (i.e. a total of at least 270/300) in your best 3 A2 modules (as you could do more than three A2 modules), regardless of which modules precisely those are.

    Wait you are allowed to take more than 3 Modules and then the best 3 are selected
    So for example
    M2 FP2 S2 and D2?

    You need an average of 90% In C3 and C4 only to get an A*
    You need to have gotten an A at AS (240+ UMS)
    To qualify for an A* you need 480+ UMS total, with 180 UMS coming from C3 and C4
    The applied modules don't have s specific thing you need to get over

    This bit isn't true. You don't need an A at AS, you can get a B at AS and still end up with Just 480 and 90% in C3 and C4 (for maths).

    The OP is talking about FM though (I think), which is a different ballgame.
