    I'm only getting around 80-90% in maths past papers at the moment and theres always parts of questions on each past paper that I can't work out or do in time.
    Did people at oxbridge get like nearly 100s on every maths module?

    At Cambridge the average UMS in maths modules for people who are given offers is 95UMS, however this is an average, people get offers with less.

    Also at this point in the year you still have plenty of time to improve your marks, sometimes it takes a little time for things to properly 'click'. Just try to complete as many past papers as you can, take specific note of where you lose marks and try to make sure you don't make those mistakes again. You may very well find you gain a lot of confidence if you put in the revision time.

    That said though, look over the CSAT papers and possibly even STEP 1 or MAT papers. As your performance in CSAT is a very significant part of the admissions process, and may be able to make up for some less competitive Maths marks
