I took AS maths, further maths, chemistry and physics and I'm continuing maths, further maths and physics to A2. My AS grades were 3As and a B in further maths- 1 UMS off of an A. I'm applying to study maths at university. I did want to apply for Oxford before I got my results back. Will the B in further maths mean I'll be rejected? I got 2As and a C in the modules that made up my further maths AS, I plan to resit the module I got a C in. Is it still worth applying for Oxford?

firstly having 1 aspirational university is fine as long as you also have good other choices. The grades requires for Maths in the very best universities tend to be exceptional and the quality of candidates outstanding. Firstly check Oxford's maths requirement and if you feel you can meet those grades then go ahead. Grades like AAA or AAB are fairly commonplace for Maths and higher offers are often requested.
It would be wise to look for 2 unis who will offer you slightly lower grades like AAB or ABB in case of rejection or not reaching your grades

Oxford is weird. My friend had AAAAA at AS but didn't even get an interview because he flunked the admissions test. If you do well in the test you might be able to get in with less.

Definitely give Oxford a shot! It's only one of your five choices.
I'd also look at getting the C module remarked as it maybe cause your FM to bump up to an A overall.
I'd go for Oxford, and then 3 AAA courses (eg Bath, Bristol, Edinburgh) and then one AAB course
Best of luck xx
