Note: From 2014 onwards, Mathematics Paper III was scrapped and the contents incorporated into the other two papers which meant that candidates wrote 7 subjects as opposed to 8 in the past.

A “Full House” of distinctions is thus 7, unless the candidate does Advanced Programme Mathematics in which case they can obtain 8 distinctions. In a few rare cases, candidates offer an extra subject, taken privately but this is not the norm.
