    I have a worry!
    Basically, I need an A in Maths and just a pass in Further Maths..
    The modules are interchangable, but who gets to choose!
    Obviously I need all the best scores to go into normal Maths, but could college average them both out so I get like two B's?
    If they did, I will definately fail my offer.

    your college won't do it, the exam board does it automatically. They'll make sure you get the highest possible score in the Maths A Level and then the other modules will be put into your Further Maths A Level

    Generally, the exam board prioritises Maths over Further Maths, so actually AC is more common than BB.

    I think I'm cutting it fine as it is, I'm expecting A in maths and E in further maths. Do you think they will keep it that way then?

    Yes. Assuming that you did Edexcel they'll count C1-C4 and then the two highest of your applied module grades
