    In GCSE I got 3-A* 4-A 3-B 1-C
    At AS im confident of probably AABB, With about 95ums on average for maths would that make a good application?

    Possible yes, but you really need to be getting at least AAAB in your AS year if you want to make a competitive application.

    It also depends on your personal statement and, if you get to interview, how you perform in that. What would you like to apply for?

    For maths? With 95 UMS% across maths and further maths, you have a reasonable chance, even with two B's. It's worth considering.

    If you do get AABB then I'd say it's just about worth a try, especially with the 95UMS, going by my own trawling through data of other applicants. You've got a chance, more especially if you can demonstrate an enthusiasm through competitions/extended reading, etc. And if you do really well in STEP, they might contact you even if they initially pool/reject you.

    No, sorry, but that doesn't happen. Once you have been rejected that's the end of the process for this admissions cycle. Although OP can certainly re-apply next year if they do well and really want to give it another shot.

    If the AA is in Maths/FM then you can be a competitve applicant. All they are really interested in are your maths academics.

    People with AABD (AA in Maths/FM) have received offers this year.

    Honestly, don't worry. Cambridge will even "forgive" 1 bad module if they see the rest are strong.

    Did they specifically give that as the sole reason?

    FP1 is probably the most important module you can do at AS, as is the hardest. 74 UMS in FP1 is a bit of a sign that you can't cope with hard maths, whereas 74 UMS in e.g. D1 just shows that you don't like following stupid algorithms. Having said that, I only got 82 UMS in FP1 (but 300 in maths) and got an offer for Computer Science with Maths. So it is possible to compensate even for not doing as well as you should in FP1.

    The thing is though because we do M2 in y13 he got 93 ums which i think is harder than fp1
