    Lol you do realise that unless you're applying to Cambridge, LSE or UCL Maths, no one cares about UMS?
    Why would he apply anywhere else for math than trinity college cambridge, imperial or ucl??

    Ermmmm why wouldn't he? Warwick maths are far superior to UCL maths and don't give a damn about UMS. In fact, some even put them above Imperial Maths.

    Imperial maths don't ask for UMS either - a strong MAT performance is the main thing for them. He needs to stop worrying about ums lol

    I got both A's in normal maths and FM (normal maths I was 6 marks off an A*)

    With an A in maths you should be fine, especially if you like algebra and pure maths

    I got an A in Maths GCSE and was second set in a public school, I got an A at A-Level Maths. You'll be fine :-)

    EDIT: State school not public school... damn English language

    work your butt off , honestly don't worry about what other people think of you just go library during frees , revise/practise everyday, don't do what i did and mess up first year and hope for adjustment, i'm lucky that the others don't count but maths did so i have to retake like 2 modules.

    Maths predicted A /achieved A
    Further maths predicted A / Achieved A
    Physics Predicted A/ achieved A
    Chemistry predicted A / Achieved A
    Biology predicted A / achieved A
    A2 preditions A* for all of them as i averaged 97% of the marks at AS which is far far beyond A* plus predicted A* in economics which i took as i thought A level was too easy..self taught myself the A2 maths and further maths in 4 weeks during summer already sat the mocks at school averaged 88%,

    Hopefully go to oxford or imperial to study math

    Damn.. thats really good.
    Im also doing Biology chemistry and maths at A2. Dropped Physics at AS (with a C grade)
    how do you do it?
    Im aiming for 2A*A in Bio Chem Maths.
    But not sure how to ensure i secure them grades. Ive started proper revision earlier this time although..

    always been really good at math and physics, tbh math I do everyday or every other day, so I just became fluent in it same with physics and chemistry and biology I just memorized the entire text book through and through, also participating in Olympiads you learn a few tricks from other clever people on how they see different problems if I didn't miss out few marks in bio cus would've averaged 100% across the board though, some one I know got 100% across the board in same subjects.

    A level mathematics doesnt have much pure maths in it... people often get mathematical methods which is A level math with actual pure math which is more like linear algebra, proofs and analysis.

    Not too great in economics i averaged about 65 in it but i taught myself the whole economics A level during summer same with further maths as my school doesnt teach it to me... i averaged 95% in the Fm but the economics brought my average down to 88% but im not too worried about it economics is kinda of easy... i know 65 still an A but its kinda annoying not getting 95% + when its kinda of a regular thing in your other subject

    A level mathematics does have a decent amount of pure maths. C1, C2 etc are pure modules they used to be called P1, P2, its in the name.

    Its not 'pure mathematics' its called mathematicak methods.. pure mathematics is more like analysis, linear algebra...mathematical methods is more useful to physicists and engineers while pure math focuses more on proof and logic..but people call it pure as thats the closest to pure maths you get before uni
