If someone were to underperform in their Further Maths AS Level, what sort of impact would that have on their options for prospective universities? Would they be unable to study their course of choice (in this case Computer Science) or would it only affect the "quality" of the university that they could realistically be accepted in to. Or, and I know this is unlikely, universities would look past the underperformed exam, but the student would have to prove (with their A2 results) that this was simply a one off.
[I hope someone can shed some light on this. I just took the FP1 exam today and know that I underperformed below the level I know that I am at and that I expect. It will also bring down my overall Further Maths grade down.]

If it's a 4th/5th subject I would worry about it to much. Although I've heard Further Maths in encouraged when applying to top universities for Computer Science.
