I have no authority to say. But my guess is that the difference is minimal; I found securing an A* in further maths hard (and I didn't), given my circumstances, but found STEP easier to succeed in for example.
Yeah, A* in further is harder, I am just hoping that the grade boundaries for this STEP 1 will be like last years in which case I should 100% have a 1 which takes the pressure off, but as long as I leave FP2 on the 22nd thinking ive got it all correct and confirming that with friends I will be confident I have met the offer.

I am doing OCR (non-MEI) Further Maths and yeah ive seen Edexcel papers, definitely easier but boundaries are much higher, usually its like 48-50/72 for an A in FP2 and 60-64 for an A* whilst Edexcel boundaries seem horrendous.
Yeah, looking like it's going to be 70/75 in M2, M3 and FP2 so far for an A*. You say A* FM is harder, I wonder if Warwick prefer A*A*A3 or A*AA2... I know that I've definitely got the A*, but not so sure about that 2. It'd be nice if they looked at FM UMS tho because I'm pretty sure I'm sitting on 393/400 atm

Oh btw, I meant 60-64 for 100 UMS hahaha, but for M2-M3 its really really high, like 68/72 for an A*, though one year an A in FP2 was 68/72... Each to their own, I am better at longer questions, i always make silly mistakes and A levels are not designed for someone who makes silly slips, but longer exams with long questions are my thing, especially when you really have to think about them.

Lol we've had a few papers which were 69/75 for an A and 72/75 for an A*. I'd much prefer to be sitting exams like yours tho with harder papers and lower boundaries. It sucks to miss out on a grade due to one stupid mistake instead of not being able to do the question like STEP. In that regard, I prefer AEA to normal A-Level.

Yeah for sure, just need to make sure I remember FP2, havent done it since February, but it the module which closest to STEP (not that any are) in terms of the topics.

I was wondering what we do if we miss our offers? I know Track goes like from 7:30-8:00 then freezes until midday but say, instead of my AAA offer for english, I got A*AB or AAB, do I have to ring and beg? Assuming Track didn't confirm that I had a place that morning? Like, what do you even do? "Hi, I messed up my A2's, I'm a really good person, let me in?" :s

My firm offer is Warwick's Law and Business BA at AAB. I got BCCU in my AS Levels last year so as you can imagine this less than stellar performance has required enormous efforts to improve. I am just wondering what you think the likelihood would be of Warwick letting me in with ABB?

I know it's probably slim but I suppose it's good to know there's a chance

Bristol, and yourself?


Also, what is the process for those who missed their offers getting in? Does the university contact you or do you have to phone and beg on results day?
St Andrews... Pretty sure there's lots of begging....

Disclaimer: I am no expert.
However, I know a few people who yes, basically did that. They rung up the university (or mailed them? Phone is probably quicker) and discussed it with them. Basically, if the university still has spots open (for example, if not many people firmed it / made their offer) they will want to fill their course. Either you go and discuss it directly with the admissions team, or you can take advantage of UCAS and their clearance / adjustment program, where you can basically 'apply' to courses at unis who are trying to fill places themselves.

Maybe it's cause the Maths with Stats course admits about 30 people in total each year...

I'm in a similar boat, got a further exam tomorrow that decides my 2nd A* if I can. Not sure my physics was up to scratch for the A though. Surely the secondary offer of AAA with a 2 in STEP isn't as good as what your saying with A*A*B with a 1 in STEP? You'll be fine
