    Hello, I sit AS maths and further maths

    AS Maths
    C1
    C2
    S1

    AS Fmaths
    FP1
    M1
    M2

    So I have done as I expected for C1C2M1FP1, I finish this week with S1 and M2.

    S1 and M2 are my weakest modules. So I was just wondering if the grades cash in differently. For example if I have scored 100UMS like I think I have in M1, will that swap with S1 to get me the maximum possible UMS in AS maths? I am worried because if I end up with 2 70's in S1 and M2, I may miss out on the A grade in Fmath. Some clarification would be appreciated

    They will attempt to maximise your Mathematics grade first, then your Further Mathematics grade. See page 4 of

    Omg!! I have the same problem as you but my weaker subjects are s1 and d1, but I think they'll try to get you 2 As rather than an A and a B because what's the point of making your Maths ums really high when you can't get an a* at as
