    Ok so the further maths A* thing is confusing but I think I have this right.
    My UMS over the 2 years are:

    C1 - 93
    C2 - 100
    C3 - 97
    C4 - 97
    M1 - 100
    M2 - 93
    S1 - 95
    S2 - 76
    D1 - 100
    D2 - 98
    FP1 - 94
    FP2 - 71

    If I remarked M2 and got 2 more marks bring me up to 96 UMS, could I get an A* if I put S2, M2 and D2 in for FM?? Or does it have to include FP2?

    Also I know getting 2 more marks is unlikely, but just hypothetically?

    Is that definite? Cos all I can find online is that it must be 3 A2 modules which the 3 I mentioned are.

    For maths I’d have c1, c2, c3, c4, s1 and m1 which is 582 UMS and an average of 97 over my A2 modules

    For further maths I’d have FP1, FP2, D1, D2, M2, S2 which is a total of 532 UMS and currently an average of 89 UMS over my best 3 A2 modules (D2,M2,S2) but if u got 3 more UMS on any of these the average would be 90 and hence an A*.

    do you need that A* to get into uni or is it for the sake of boosting your ego? I'd understand both situations.
    Priority remark if you genuinely need the A*.

    Is it edexcel? Your school can request free online access to scripts - you can only get a remark on papers you sat this session.

    pretty much boosting my ego haha. I'm not that bothered I just think if I'm that close (I know it's 3 UMS but that's only 2 marks) I'd rather just know. My parents are cool paying for the remark even if there's just a small chance, I just wanted to make sure there was actually a chance at all.
    I wouldn't get priority remark bc I'm taking a gap year.
    Thanks

    so just to clarify, it is possible? even if it's not very likely? I'll probably get m2 remarked and then if that goes up by 1 i'll get d2 remarked. if it doesn't go up I'll leave it.
    i can't just do d2 bc I can only get 2 more ums on that lol
