    I'm probably applying to Oxford to study maths in the coming months, as I got A*AAA in my AS results (I did maths a year early). I know that Oxford don't require me to include UMS however I would like to show my improvement from my AS modules to my A2 modules (84 average in AS, 96 average in A2). I'm worried that because 84 UMS isn't too great it might harm my application, however I'd like to show how I've improved.

    Just looking for any advice on what you think I should do, include UMS or not. Maybe 96 isn't even worth boasting about at Oxford hahaha I'm happy with it though

    Consider asking your teacher to mention it in your reference, whether or not you include the 84.
