    Hi, I achieved ABBB at as level in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Geography (dropped) respectively. I am looking to apply for maths at Warwick, Bristol, Bath, Durham and Southamton.
    Are these realistic? I think i can get AAA maybe an A* in maths at A2.

    What are your school predicting? You'll need STEP for Warwick.

    I think i'll be predicted A*AA and i will be taking STEP. Also some of my maths modules and physics unit 2 at AS were grade C, i will be retaking these but will they affect whether i get an offer?

    I'm not sure you'll get into Warwick & Durham as they are competitive.

    You need to know your predictions. If some of your maths modules were only a C then perhaps Warwick is not for you? Talk to your maths teachers as they will know whether this was unexpected.

    Do you prefer pure, mechanics or stats? That might affect where you apply because the content of maths degrees varies a lot!

    My school doesn't have a specialist stats teacher so i have only done S1, which i got an A. I did M1 and M2 also and got a B and C. I prefer pure maths but i have done so much mechanics (now doing M3 at A2) that its starting to grow on me and i think i'll be able to get A's in M1 and M2 in retakes. Tbh i think Warwick is quite optimistic but there is a chance i can get A*AA, but i wouldn't want to waste an application if im going to be rejected because of my AS modules.
