    I get back from holiday on Sunday 9th (missing 4 days of school, whoops!)and have C1/C2 on Tuesday 11th and M1 on Thursday 13th... Do you think I need to take revision with me? I could do all the pure maths in my sleep at the moment but how much am I likely to forget in two weeks? I was thinking a bit of revision on the plane flight home should refresh my memory?

    This entirely depends on your confidence with the Core material!

    well at the moment 100% (I already have 91 on C1).... i suppose its worth taking some just to read over if i get a spare moment.... are you doing any of the modules? i think M1 will be harder than C1/C2...

    Yea, M1 is slightly harder.

    Well, if you have 91 on Core, there really isn't much need to go and revise frantically and because you will be carrying on with the maths course at school, im sure that will suffice, a lot of maths is common throughout the course, thats one of the great things about doing Maths at Alevel.

    Maybe just do a bit of practise rather than actaul topic revision.

    Myself, I am just doing Core 1 in January.

    I've heard that Cambridge asks for the UMS marks you achieved in each module. Does this mean they want just your highest mark in each module assuming you sat retakes? Or do they want to know all the marks you got for each module, both on the first attempt and on retakes?

    The UCAS system has slightly changed. Instead of grades they now tell universities of any resits and your actual mark in each exam. This is supposed to help them decide between strong/weak candidates. The system was piloted by Oxbridge, Warwick and a few others this year i think, just to see what the system was like, i dont think they are basing admissions on the new system this year as its only an administration test. If you are in Year 12 this time, by the time you apply for uni the new UCAS system will be in place, so the university will be aware of any resits etc.

    I thought that was being piloted this time round, then for the year 12s next year it'd be fully working etc.
