is that further maths? and why do u need further mths anyway, u r applying 4 physics, so surely they wud ask u questions on electricity and forces and space and stuff.

For Physics it is preferable to have further maths
really, why is that? but edders doesnt do further maths and he applies 4 physics and got maths questions. r u saying that he has less cahnce of success of in his ox application compared to the majority of physics applciants coz he hasnt got further maths?

Don't even bother applying for Physics then if you haven't done Maths A level

no, the requirement is an A in Physics, an A in Maths, and any other A (not including General Studies)

Seriously mate....don't worry about uni applications until next year.....maybe think about what you want to do but, don't start considering complexities such as college choice etc.

i just checked out the ox site. for economics (what i am intrested in) it says mathematics and economics to full-alevel is reccommended.

for physics, it says mathematics and physics to fulla-level is essential, further maths at as level or more cna be helpful for some elements of the course......

And I got loads of maths questions in my Geology interview - in fact more physics and chemistry were included than geology!

You don't actually need further maths for physics at oxford (my cousin knows people at wadham who didn't do it), but be warned, at wadham college at least, the further maths syllabus is covered in 2 weeks. Maths is a huge part of the course, so much so, i believe, that you actually have to do separate maths exams as well as physics papers

ohh, u dont need further maths? then why is it that nealry all the applicants who apply have further maths then?

as i said, if u get rejected it will b coz u dont have further maths, u wasnt even able to attempt 2 of the questions bcoz of it. its a sahme, but u will be disadvantaged.

i mean, if they r deciding between 2 people and its a very tough decision, but one has further maths, they will pick the 1 with further maths anyday.

Brasenose..not academic?????!!!!
OK... perhaps to say it is 'not academic' is wrong. All I mean to say is that it is not up there with the likes of Merton, St. Johns, Balliol etc... at least that was not my impression of the college.
