    I am studying for my A Levels in year 13 and I am in the middle of my UCAS application.
    My anxiety has grown around whether my AS Further Math results will affect my chances.

    I have taken my AS Exams in Further maths (M1, FP1, D1) and got a U in every module and have chosen to drop Further Maths.
    I have been told that I must put these results in my application.
    I am considering to apply to Warwick and other good universities for economics that require AAA, AAB, ABB... And I am certain I can aquire these results.

    At GCSE, I acquired 8 As and 3Bs (Retaking English language from D to B).
    I have moderately good predicted grades...
    Mathematics - A
    Economics - A
    Spanish - B

    Do you think my AS Further Maths results will immensely disadvantage me in applying to a top university?
    Or, will they oversee it with a good personal statement and good predicted grades?

    What subject are you applying for? If Spanish, it won't matter; if Maths/Econ, then it won't look great but is still worth a try.
