    Pretty sure that's more than enough lol most ppl dont even bother with M4. Are you going into year 13?
    Yes going into Year 13.
    I did 6 AS's and the only one I think I am going to drop is Physics (as for me it is really dull at A-Level).

    I enjoy chemistry more than Physics. It offers more of a challenge. In Physics I just have to write down a load of rubbish and I get marks for it. Why is there no calculus in Physics A-Level?!!! IT would be so much better.

    Thanks! What are you applying for?
    So far I feel like I will be applying for Maths at the following institutions: Manchester, Surrey, Bath, Nottingham and Southampton. My GCSEs aren't the best so I feel like I wouldn't stand a chance at Durham, Cambridge etc. The London unis are some of the most expensive unis so I'm definitely not considering them . Despite all of this I may change one of my choices to Cambridge if I do well on STEM past papers and develop my problem solving skills.

    Also is anyone here taking to new Durham maths admissions test? Once you take it and receive your result how do you let Durham know what score you got? Is it something that goes in the reference?

    From what I know AFM is only available on Edexcel. Are your Maths and Further Maths modules also Edexcel? I did AQA so i don't know if you can combine them with Edexcel's AFM qualification.

    Durham is a top uni. Their maths course is likely to be competitive so they may look at the GCSEs of candidates of equal ability to differentiate them.
