    Edexcel isn't really regarded as the hardest maths board maybe that's why you're finding it so easy

    Didn't mean to imply they're all arrogant (I do maths and physics myself), but I never hear English Lit students claiming their subject is intrinsically the best, but maths and physics students love to claim that.
    I have, and tbh as a further maths physics person I'd be inclined to agree. Essays are hard!

    Anyways, I've been lurking for ages like I did last year but since I'm now in a2 I feel able to actually comment and stuff
    So my firm offer is a*aa and my insurance is aaa. I already have an a* in maths so im waiting for further maths physics and art...

    Best case scenario: 3 a*s
    Worst case: aab
    Most likely: a*aa

    not feeling too nervous yet; I'm waiting for grade boundaries before I panic

    You're so lucky to have a worst case scenario as AAB!
    My BEST case scenario is about that!

    PREACH! I have literally planned and researched my firm uni. I have NO idea what to do if I don't get in, so I'm trying not to jinx anything and I really know nothing about my insurance, which I guess is kinda stupid, even though this time last year I really wanted to go to my insurance uni but after researching, I just want my firm :/

    Which exam board are you? I personally only think MEI has a serious claim to being a better board for Maths.

    That's a nice range of subjects you got there, what course did you apply for?

    Thanks, good luck to you too!

    Wow I just checked out the syllabus for MEI Maths/FM and it is so much more interesting than Edexcel. Do you do Further Maths by any chance?
