    I've just finished year 11, and I took GCSE maths a year early, so did core 1 and core 2 of AS maths alongside the rest of my GCSES. I got 87 and 89 ums respectively, but I have my sights set on Oxbridge and I know they want really good ums, and I also want to get an A* in maths. I have two options- retake the AS, or carry on and self teach M1 to get the full AS alongside the A-level in the same year?

    As someone who did A-level maths, not early on like you, I would definitely retake if I were you especially because you have the chance to and it should be pretty easy for you. Those are amazing marks to get for someone in yr 11 and you're not far from the 90s, (I got an average of 92 across C1 and C2). For A2, if you want that A*, every UMS point counts and it will be pretty simple for you to bump up your UMS, might be like second nature. Good luck applying.
