    I don't think you're allowed to include M3 as parts of your ordinary Maths A Level (I was reading the OCR specification the other day, and the only acceptable combinations for Maths are combinations of M1, S1 and D1, and then either D1 and D2 or S1 and S2 or M1 and M2)

    Your results should automatically be organised by the awarding body to give you the best possible outcome within the rules of the specification (e.g. A Level Maths could not include M3)
    an explanation for OCR-MEI here (they all do same process):

    They are organised so that you get the highest grade with the lowest possible score for A level maths, so they try and get your best modules in to further maths (thats only so that you get the two highest grades possible)
    However your results must follow a logical order, so you can't actually put a 3 in maths and a 2 in further maths. The possible combinations for maths are D1 D2, S1 S2, M1 M2, D1 M1, D1 S1, M1 S1.
    I know these as facts because one of my maths teachers was one of the OCR (actually MEI) maths head examiners so she helped to organise these things.

    As has been said above, your scores are automatically assigned to give the lowest possible A in maths, and the highest grade possible in further maths.

    Again, as has been said above, there are some restrictions. In mathematics, you can't have any modules that aren't the first or second of that form. Also, you can't have modules that you don't already have the former module in.
