    Okay so currently I am in year 13 studying further maths and physics. In year 12 I got an A* in a level maths so i picked Cardiff as my insurance because their offer is AAA-ABB so I thought that they would give me a lower offer of lets say AAB or ABB and it could be my insurance and probably Oxford or Warwick as my firm choice. A few weeks ago Cardiff gave me an offer of A*AA which seems too high considering that it is as high as an Oxford or Warwick offer, so right now I don't have an insurance choice. Does this mean that if I don't meet the offer I will not get in or they are just pushing me so that by giving me a high offer I will carry on working hard? I mean I would work hard even if they gave me an offer of ABB because my other choices are A*AA but I would've picked Cardiff in case I messed up on one of my exams and got lets say A*AB overall because I'm sure Oxford or Warwick wouldn't accept me if I didn't meet their offer whereas other universities might be a bit nicer about it.

    Well if you already have an A* in A level maths you just need to get As in Further Maths and Physics so I wouldn't worry about it.
