    Hi,

    Could someone explain what module results I need to get in order to achieve an A in further maths? I currently do FP2, FP3, FP4, S2, M1 and M2. Last year I did C1, C2, C3, C4, FP1 and S1.

    Is it similar to A level normal maths where you have to average 90% in two exams such as core 3 and 4?

    For an A in either maths or further maths you need 480 total ums

    For an A* in maths you need 480 ums that includes 180 ums from C3+C4

    For A * in further maths you need 480 ums that includes 270 ums from your best 3 A2 units i.e. Any except D1, M1, S1 or FP1 ( and of course C1-4 that have to be in maths)

    If your entries have been done correctly the examiners will automatically combine your results within the rules of the specification to optimise your grades.
