    Same here, my referee told me to choose universities that I'd be willing to go to as I was struggling to choose an insurance. So in the end I decided not to pick an insurance

    Slightly risky, but what's life without risks eh?

    I haven't got an insurance either, A*AA all the way

    Exactly, in the grand scheme of things not having an insurance isn't going to change your life, but going to a sub-standard university may well do!

    Precisely. I just hope that this does not back fire in the end...

    How are you finding Further Maths? M1 is just horrid, definitely not what I signed up for

    I'm actually doing M1 in normal maths (not that it matters), and I hate it too, luckily I can afford to completely screw up 1 unit and could still come out with top grades in both... But I hate D1 too, so it's a bit of a toss up really

    I realised that too. I think I will end up shifting S1 and S2 into the Further Maths, leaving me with M1 and M2 for my A2 Maths, so I guess that is a little less pressure

    You guys are complaining about M1? My Further Maths class was full of wannabe physicists so I had to do M3. :rolleyes:

    M1 was a party pooper alright. It ruined my clean sweep in AS Maths . However, I redressed that with M2.

    I think people disliked the fact that you're asking everyone to post their UMS for the benefit of you knowing what the competition is like. I'm not sure why you want to know - there will be loads of people outside of TSR applying to Sidney Sussex.

    Also, how can you have 95%+, 94%+ percent rather than 95% and 94%?

    I don't think 94% (top three) and 93% (top four) is poor at all.
    I just want to know so I can get at least some idea of competition, better than not knowing anything.

    By 95%+ I mean that I scored above 95%, so 96,97....

    Your right, they aren't poor, but they are still 2%-4% below what the average Cambridge offer holder has.

    Then why not write what you got? I'm not quite understanding your motive here: you want other people to be honest so you can judge the competition, but you're being vague with your own results?

    They're OK but I don't want to take any chances. This thread is always plagued by phantom neggers.
