First of all massive congratulations! Well done on your results, you should be so proud!! I do have something to ask, but it isn’t related to your grades – how did you boost your personal statement for Cambridge? I’m planning on applying (although not for maths) to Oxbridge and I’ve been really confused so far on how to make yourself stand out as an applicant through your personal statement. Seeing people like Unjaded Jade get rejected with all A*s at GCSE makes me nervous as it shows that my good grades won’t give me an automatic ticket to being accepted so I’d like to improve my application a bit more. (I’ve just finished my GCSEs and waiting on results)

I'm going to Trinity College and I got 9A* A^ in the fsmq and a B i honestly think 6 A* are enough to get into maths as GCSEs are irrelevant when applying for maths degrees what unis are looking for moreso is how you use your 2 years however since AS is redundant now i think GCSEs are going to be more important however i would say 5A* is the bare minimum you should get if applying for cambridge for oxford it isn't enough however. My personal statement was appalling ngl i think what helped was the fact i got into BMO and i vaguely mentioned a bunch of books i skimmed through however prepare to defend whatever book u mention to death in the interview.My PS was really generic i talked about NCS and how it made me feel unstoppable lmao the PS doesn't matter for cambridge definitely does for some other Unis like imperial however.

The thing about oxbridge is that they don't students who know just how to revise everyone who applies to oxbridge can easily do that they want students that demonstrate passion for the subject and doing lots of supercurriculars is an effective way to demonstrate this in a personal statement. Additionally making sure your interview is stellar is a very big factor in whether they accept or reject you.

Wow that’s amazing! Do universities really care about Maths PS? Also is it possible that you could share your PS?

And what are examples of activities that you should do to boost your application?
