    I have read the paper and found that getting an A in all modules is rare. For my AS results i got AAAA (Maths, F. maths, Economics, Music) and got and A for every module.

    My question is that this is probably a desireable thing to have and should I try to persuade my teachers to put this on my references (already been written and one of my AS teachers has left ) or put it in my personal statement, or both?

    Finally, is the B i got in general studies worth declaring because I have no teacher, no lessons = no predicition and it wont count towards any offers.

    You need to log onto the Maths forums here and also get lots of practice on the STEP papers. Clare is reknowned as the musical colleg BUT a) it's very popular and b) the music is almost 'professional' in standard from what I gather. I'd post up a query in the Cambridge Forum once you have narrowed it down to say 4 colleges.

    Get your teachers to put it in your reference.

    And no, I wouldn't bother, because Cambridge don't give a damn about general studies. Though I don't know if you're bound to declare it or something...

    You are bound to declare it if certificated. Also, I just made my offer for maths at Clare, Clare being the musical college, so if you apply to Clare PM me and I can talk you through their interview etc.
