    Yep possibly, but it'll depend on what their grade requirements for GCSES are, do you know?

    GCSE: I think it's grade A at GCSE, doesn't say how many As and A* one should have.

    ahh okay thank you. It's abit annoying when they only have their mininum requirements :/ Edinburgh have a list of what an average applicant would have which is so useful, but with the rest some of them it's like taking a risk where you're applying tbh because realistically most people do exceed the mininum highly

    Finished

    I know some people still have their core further maths module in late June, though.

    Are you nearly done?

    I'm doing C1, C2, S1 for Maths AS. FP1, M1, D1 for Further Maths AS. I'm taking C3 a year early. I'll be taking C4 in January so I'll know by March if I've got an A* or not (and if I haven't, I can take the necessary resits ).

    Ah, at least your school makes you take C4 in January. If you certificate before UCAS, Cambridge are likely to not include the Maths A-Level in your offer. :eek:

    Are you on Edexcel? If so, how did you find C1, C2, S1, M1 and D1?

    I've got FP1 left. I sort of wish I had more exams (or could do the earlier ones again).

    I'm taking C4 in January 2012, so it'll be certificated in March 2012 I guess, which is way after UCAS.

    No, OCR I'm afraid (that's right, fun fun fun doing the OCR D1 paper).

    How did you cope with it personally?

    I wouldn't wish people on Edexcel this series - their exams have been devious to say the least!

    It was shockingly hard and pretty bad on OCR's part for putting in an unsolvable 'show that'.
