    So I'm looking to apply for Physics for 2017 entry at Oxford and Imperial but I don't do further maths. How much of a disadvantage will I be at?

    (I do Physics, Maths(c1, c2, s1, c3, c4, s2, m1 and m2), Geography at Alevel and I did Chemistry at AS too + an EPQ)

    Wait why tf are there 4 applied units?

    In your position you should think about doing m1,m2

    if it were my decision (brilliant pun) I would go for S1 and M1

    Not disadvantage from applying at all...
    There are no hidden requirements at all so just research your Uni's.

    Have you only just picked up your EPQ? They are actually really useful and count as an A level grade(although it's an AS)

    Since you're doing 4 applied units, if you did FP1, youd get an AS in further maths

    The Oxford web site makes it very clear, I'm sure imperial will too.
    It's an advantage to completing the course but is not needed to be offered a place.

    That said, you are doing 8 units of maths, you only need to self study one more, FP1 and you could have an AS in FM.

    You could just use them for further maths instead of using them as a safety net for normal maths
