    Hi guys, this is my first post, so I am sorry if I posted in the wrong forum.

    I sat the Further Pure Maths exam for my IGCSEs and got a B, will admissions view my grade as suspicious and will it seriously impact my chances? (thinking of applying to Wadham to do physics)

    My IGCSEs as a whole are: 6A*s (Physics, Bio, Chem, Maths, Econ, Malay), 3As (Eng. Lan, Eng. Lit, ICT), B (Further Pure Maths), C (Design and Tech. )

    Depends what you are doing for A Levels, what your predicted are and how you do in your admission test, so I'd say no. I mean they may question why you got a B, but may overlook it.

    Not at all.

    FPM is known for being very challenging. Maths GCSE is child's play in comparison so it won't look suspicious.
