    Hiya! I'm currently doing my IBs with HL subjects Lang/Lit, Business and film, where I think I will get 776 or if I'm very lucky 777. I am applying for 2017 entry to UK Philosophy courses, including Cambridge. I am currently doing SL Maths, but I'm thinking of changing to Studies for my second year. I am not bad in Maths, but have lost about three years of education which means there is A LOT for me to catch up on. I think having to study for maths that much would take a toll on my other grades and bring my total points down. What are your experiences with applying for Oxbridge with maths studies?

    Oxbridge won't care if you do maths studies if you're applying for philosophy. If doing maths studies will improve your chances of getting 7s then I think it would be a good idea to switch.
