    Hi I'm looking to apply for part 3 of the cam maths tripos in a few years and was wondering if they can reject you based on your a level grades (i have a*a*a but I know someone who got rejected with aaa and >95% in their maths degree)

    I wouldn't think they'd be remotely interested in your A level grades - the key thing for a successful Part III application is the quality of your undergraduate degree!

    The general slogan is that any part III candidate should be of roughly first class (in undergrad tripos) caliber - this is speculation but I would be extremely surprised if the person you know was rejected on the basis of their A-level grades. It could be that they either had a poor application in other respects, or the course they came from was not thought to be sufficient preparation for part III, even at >95%.
