    Would it be possible to get accepted into Oxbridge for a maths undergrad degree with only an AS in Further Maths (grade a) alongside;
    Maths A*
    Physics A
    Economics A

    Just wondering if it's worth applying, thanks in advance...

    Thanks, had a look at cambridge's because that's where I want to go and they ask for A* A A. Further Maths highly desirable and looking at the stalking page everyone else has further maths. I think I'll be disadvantaged but I might take on some extra-cirriculum to improve my UCAS form.

    Ensure that it's relevant to maths or it won't improve your application :nah:

    Thanks, anybody know of any maths challenges coming up this summer or before Oxbridge application deadline? I'm doing a week at an accountancy firm as well.

    Why aren't you continuing to A2 with Further Maths? Might that not look rather odd? Oxbridge won't be interested in extra-curricular stuff. If you look at some recent threads on the subject, everyone who was interviewed for maths said they were asked about nothing but maths problems.

    Im taking AS Further Maths in my A2 year. I was ilinformed when I chose my subjects and it's backfired a little bit.
