    Predictions mean virtually nothing, its about what you will get in the end if I was predicted A's, I would probably just work that much harder to get the A* to prove them wrong

    Yes that is very true and it is maths so fairly easy to do well if you learn the formulae and techniques .... But yeah I don't know if I'll be able to get an A*... :/ how many ums points did you get for AS?

    well, I did maths in one year and I got 590/600 For me, its actually the one and only subject where you dont need to learn anything! its all about practising and everything gets stuck in your head. By learning stuff instead of understanding it, I doubt you will get far past A boundary

    Is it best just to choose it for the uni....?

    To an extent it's probably better to pick your choices based on where you want to be as a uni, seeing as a lot of core topics like analysis will be taught at almost all unis. However, the course content can vary a lot, so do at least take a look at the sort of units you do, especially the compulsory ones. There were some unis I ruled out because they forced you to take a lot of statistics, or didn't offer enough mechanics etc. So do at least take a look, but don't get too worried about the exact content of each course.

    Oh i see. Yes i'll look for those kind of things, thank you
    I prefer the core maths more than stats and do NOT understand mechanics!! haha :/
    I'll have a look at them yeah

    Yeah you've still got plenty of time, just have a little look at the course guides and units etc. Wherever you go you'll probably have a great time anyway. But it might be worth looking out for courses where mechanics/stats aren't compulsory units, or at least there aren't many compulsory units in those areas. In fact you might even want to consider also having a look at degrees in 'pure maths' rather than doing what I did and solely looking at courses called 'maths'
