Warwick MORSE without Further Maths?

I'm an international student have predicted grades of 3A*s in Maths, Economics and Computer Science. I really find the MORSE degree interesting, but my university counsellor says that without Further Maths, it's basically impossible to get in. I'm applying for EFDS at Imperial so I plan to take the TMUA, so maybe that helps? So should I take my chances and apply for it, or would it be a waste of 1 of my 5?

As per the Warwick website, it should be possible to get in without FM, but you would need to achieve at least 6.5 on TMUA and you would need to self study FM as it assumes knowledge of the FM syllabus.

I've got no idea on your chances of getting in and I can't comment on that. If your school is willing to, try and cover the AS portion of further maths over the summer and get a predicted grade for it, it will certainly make a stronger application and while it's tough, its definitely doable.

MORSE involves a lot of statistics so you will need to be competent in a lot of techniques used in Further maths and they will be put to use a lot so even if you do not take up further maths, you will need a lot of the content of it during your degree.
