    I got 479 (1 UMS off an A ) and my private tutor says I would be capable of taking maths at Uni, even though I'm not.
    It's not really the answer you were looking for but hey...
    whether you're good enough of doing maths at uni is not down to a-levels. More down to your motivation and whether you indeed like the sort of maths at uni! I started a maths degree but dropped out after a year because I hated uni maths, but I loved a-level maths. Uni maths is all proof. Google: Analysis, sets and group, linear algebra. It's all bull ****! I ended up doing a geophysics degree. Enjoyed it far more

    I didn't know that arrangement was possible, I thought modules had to go chronologically! (ie, you couldn't have M3 or 4 or 5 in FM without having M2 in FM as well.)

    I did not think so either; so it was a shock on results day. Based on it I don't think Edexcel have any rules governing re-arrangement of the applied modules after Maths is said and done.

    This only applies to Maths, ie you can't have S1 M2 as your two applied modules, you must have either two 1 modules or a 1 and 2 of the same thing, but once you get to FM and AFM you can share you applied modules between them however you want.

    Cambridge have enough top students to not worry too much about potentially missing out on another one.

    480 minimum with 180 across C3 and C4, but if you want to guarantee an A* just aim for 580+

    I've just read people's scores and i'm quite amused. I worked hard this year ( As) and only achieved (which i was still happy about but getting A* overall would be amazing);

    C1: 89
    C2: 85
    S1: 77

    You guys scoring 90%+ consistently throughout As and A2, how do you prepare for your exams, i'm thinking it's just natural intelligence but looking forward to your replies

    An A* student is just an A grade student who doesn't make little mistakes in their exams. You'll probably find you don't know that much less subject knowledge than an A* student, but an A* student will learn the exam off by heart and then learn to recognize where they make most of their mistakes and how to optimize their time in an exam so they have as much time to check as possible.

    Learn the mark schemes and discover what the minimum you have to do to ensure full marks on question is. Don't waffle, as waffling = wasted time and lost marks.
