    I dislike being grouped with people who imo are average. If I apply to cambridge, and they have some folks flicking through applications with boredom: "4 a levels, 4 a levels, 4 a levels...yawn...oh a 5 a level guy...4 a levels...4 a levels...OH SNAP 6? With 2 already completed? with A* in both? gogogogo get this guy
    I thought you already had an unconditional offer from ICL. :rofl: Isn't that what you made up in another thread? :rolleyes:

    You are stupid. Go check the admissions for Cambridge. Having so many A-Levels does not give you an advantage unless you have like 23 like that Pakistani guy. Cambridge also looks at UMS so if you have say 85% average in 6 and another person has 90+ % in 3-5 A-Levels then they will be picked over you. Take 5 max in my opinion.

    You're saying that to someone who supposedly got an unconditional offer to read Mathematics at Imperial College London at the age of fifteen. Just thought I'd say.

    TSR generally has a smarter population than average. Well that's what the grades people are expecting show. Overall, not many people take it however the number of students are increasing. You are doing the same combination as me Hi-5!

    Have you considered psychology as a subject choice at A level?

    Oh well, he didn't deserve to go if he thinks that more than 4 A-Levels will give him any sort of 'advantage'. I personally am doing 5 but not because I want Oxbridge to go 'OMG' that guy is awesome. I'm doing Maths, FMaths, Physics, Chemistry and Economics so I have an option to go into Finance or Physics. This guy just seems to be boasting. I advise him not to because a robot and study 6 A-Levels; it will leave you no time for work placements, extra curriculars and more that will help build your character. Oxbridge does not want working robots; we are working on artificial intelligence for a reason.

    But I'll probably cut down to 4 for A2 and do the EPQ as well

    Don't be jealous. Although I suppose haters gonna hate.
    No one is jealous Mr. Arrogant. Why don't you provide us with some evidence? Scan the acceptance letter or something and post it here. Word of mouth doesn't help really.
