    Well 90+ in AS maths is quite hard to get now because of ****ty M1. Other than that I would have easily got 95+.
    Didn't you get 74/75 in C1 and C2? So that should help

    Allow me to give you a sense of perspective.
    Say you got 70UMS (not saying that you did, just hypothetically.)
    Lets say that you averaged. 98 on all your other modules.
    This would give you 560/600 or 93.3333 per module.
    A bit less than 95, but still well above 90.

    I don't understand why don't they have a course just for Physics, Chemistry, Biology etc...? Why would I take un relevant things in the first year or so?
    Annoying isn't it? It's one of the things that put me off.
    Shame though - I like chem

    They do less content in IB HL Maths, but the exam is just harder. My bro looks at my A level maths papers and just laughs at me sometimes The time's a lot tighter and the questions near the end of the paper do get pretty difficult when you're so pressed for time, from what I've seen.
    To be fair, do you not look at A-Level papers and laugh? :cool:

    It's Cambridge -they've all got stupidly high UMS.
    But given that 480 is the required for an A* 560 say, is still pretty good.
    I agree it's good, but it's just that if there is that fierce competition then you have to do better than good to get through the other end with an offer! Especially if going for Physical Natural Sciences, Maths is important then. Also, it is an average for the 3 most relevant subjects, and Maths is going to be one of those relevant subjects in most cases anyway, so it's best to try get it as high as possible.

    Guys, can I just point out that if your UMS is <95% that is not the be all end all :rofl:

    If you had one bad module and 5 modules >95% and did well on your interview, they'd be crazy to reject you. :L

    At the end of the day, if they want you there, they want you there.
    A few of years back someone from my school got an offer of CE from cambridge for maths (they already had an A in maths) :lol:

    True xD

    Of course, one should try and score as highly as possible, but I'm just saying, if you have one bad module score, you shouldn't be anticipating imminent rejection.

    It's because a lot of the applicants have consistently brilliant UMS. You do not really have the problem as your UMS is near perfect and you throw around STEP level or close questions on this thread with childish glee (not a bad thing), but for others the application process is going to be daunting because some of the competition they have can seem almost inhuman.

    (Case in point, those of us who applied to the same college as LotF...)
