    May I ask what you got in terms of UMS at AS and what you were predicted for A2?

    ...also GCSE grades if you are willing? thanks

    You do!! Those grades are great!

    What are your GCSEs like as I've always been told they love a good GCSE performance. Mine were absolutely shocking (1A*, 5As, 5Bs, 1C) which always made me think I'd get rejected seeing as I'm up against loads of people with 10A*+. So I guess that shows you can afford to have one poor part of the application.

    GCSEs 6A* and 5As

    Considering you didn't do so well at GCSEs, how did you get yourself to achieve such good grades at AS (Cos they are exceptional)?

    Thanks

    Id say 90% of it was moving to a better school.

    My previous school didn't even get 60% of students 5A*-C grades. The teaching was awful, they didn't teach us how to revise, basically everyone just wanted to mess around etc.

    So I moved to a new school where they showed me the importance of past papers, I was given loads of support, encouraged to work hard, everyone else wants to work as well etc.

    That's brilliant. I'm unsure about my GCSE grades, granted they're good but comparatively not as great (7A*, 2A, 1C... I decided I wanted to go to university quite late and by that time damage was done, I just had my final year to resolve things and I feel I did to some degree); I'll be dropping a subject for A2 year and obviously picked up AS FM if my timetable allows me.

    Will doing 3A2s be a hinderance? There's no way I'm continuing English into A2, plus it frees up time to focus on FM.

    No 3A2s is fine. All my offers are based on 3A2s, apart from Warwick which has given A*AAa or A*AAB. I only carried on with 4 because I got my highest UMS in the subject I was planning to drop and it seemed the best way to maximize my chances of making the overall grade requirements.

    And I guess you were absolutely right! Where have you decided to go to university?

    It is a long way off yet before I apply, I'm just thinking is it pointless having applying to Cambridge when you are applying to UCL, Warwick and possibly LSE... maths permitting. Cambridge just seems impossible to get into and it takes away an application place. Did you apply there too?

    Can't make my mind up now! Think I'll wait until nearer the deadline to decide. Still have to go to the Durham open day. Didn't apply to Cambridge/LSE as no FM, but applied to Oxford & got as far as interview stage.
