    Did 5/6 exams for maths in year 12 (kept core 4 for year 13 as I know some unis ask for say AAA in year 13, and as maths would be done in year 12, you would require another 3 A levels to be sat in year 13)

    I do maths, chemistry, biology.

    Learnt AS FM maths stuff (would have never done A2 FM as need good bio and chem).

    But I’ve applied for natural sciences, got offers and didn’t say anything about doing FM and I know extra AS levels are quite irrelevant now.

    So should I not bother doing AS further maths and focus on bio, chem and core 4?

    Please answer this:
    1) I declared that I sat exams early, but I didn’t draw attention to this in my reference. If they noticed that I sat exams early, and don’t like it, they can’t take back an offer can they?

    2) I’m not sure about Natural sciences, and may apply for medicine next year (and take a gap year) instead of going to do natural sciences. Do you think medicine will be more likely to have an issue with exams sat early, and would taking FM AS resolve this?

    I just don’t want to turn down natural sciences and then try to apply for a different course next year, and then they suddenly have an issue with me taking exams early

    I’d suggest talking to your college as they know you better as a person and will be the best to advise you
