Nothing too extravagant!
I chose Bristol for a silly reason. I wanted to go to Cambridge so badly, as you know, and Durham seemed like a 'knock-off version' of it, which to me seemed like a poor substitute and made me want to go to Cambridge even more. So, when I heard back from Cambridge I thought I'd go to somewhere completely different. Plus I like the course there, as it has a lot of emphasis on Anglo-Saxon. Like I said, completely stupid reasoning but I guess I am where I am now and there's not a lot I can do about it.
I'm sure you won't even need an insurance choice - you'll ace your exams.
I am an Englisher! I love archaeology and if I had done Biology at A-Level I would have applied for Archaeology and Anthropology. Digging in the mud on Hadrian's Wall is just my way of getting my history fix before I go to uni.
Oh goodness. I know how you feel. Summer feels like a million years away during A-Levels, doesn't it? And then when it comes you'll feel like you've got nothing to do. It's a funny sensation!
What kind of work do you have to do for STEP? Is it problem based or more theoretical?
That's not a bizarre question. And yes I do play clarinet, amongst various other things! Pourquoi?
I'm sure you could be eligible to win something, although I'm not sure what!
Things are going well thank you. I got offers from Durham, Warwick, Bristol and Royal Holloway; firmed Bristol. And my gap year's not going too bad either - I've got some work published and I'm going to join the archaeological excavation team at Vindolanda in June.
How're you? Good I hope.
Ah right. Mine goes Y12: C1 and FP1, then C2, S1, M1, S2 and then Y13: C3, D1, M2, D2 then C4 and FP2. I think my head of maths is going to move some stuff around in the near future, he asked our class what we would recommend for the AS lot's applied modules.
We had very basic SUVAT, work, springs - we're doing the tiniest amount possible for circular motion now (F=mv2/r and that's all) and a bit of SHM. But I think OCR B's known for being a bit crap. I'm not brilliant at mechanics, I'd say I'm much better at the pure stuff.
No doubt you'll get through it quicker than me
I think I should, but then I'd have 5 lessons a week where I wouldn't be doing anything - I really doubt one of my C4 teachers would let me self-teach and the other one's lessons are usually pretty fun.
Ha, if we're basing our maths ability on that M2 exam then I'm destined to get a third, or fail my degree Bath and Exeter, or Exeter and something. Perhaps Bristol. I need offers from Bath and Bristol yet I know that I'll be going to whichever uni I firm anyway - I know I can get at least A*AA. Haven't actually visited any of them, although I've been to Bath itself a couple of times. What about you? I'm guessing Cambridge's going to be one of them.
Hey!congratsss on ur offer?
I look up to such students!!can you please tell me what were your grades in gcse (as in how many As and A*s)and what subjects in a levels so i can also follow your footsteps.
That's more or less all you need to do for a complete solution of this problem.
First, you may choose and take a limit as .
This will make the first fraction one, and will vanish the others.
Second, the values may be and take a simultaneous limit as .
The first and third fractions become one, and the remaining two are vanished.
Hence, since the expression is defined on positive numbers, it is safe to state that it is continuous and all the values between these bounds can be represented.
Finally, it is obvious that 1 and 2 are not included (as they are limiting values), but a "proof" is required.
My application is for Computer Science + Maths, not straight Maths.
I thought that my interviews went well. I had three interviews and there was only one intimidating question.
The experience of being in Cambridge was great, and I'm hoping for the chance to go there.
That's correct. Why do you feel shaky about the 2? How did you get it?
The important conclusion to be made is whether all the values between 1 and 2 can be achieved.
Then, you are establishing that 1 and 2 are not included, by using this trick.
About what you were asking in the applicants thread, I decided that it is more sensible to send you a visitors message.
I can hardly call this proof "mine" in the sense that, this is a common strategy to find something
that is less than, or greater than, the given expression while still in the constraints.
If you are interested further in this, you can use this technique to attempt the following problem.
If are positive real numbers, then determine the possible values of
I may want to choose specific values and take some limits to approach the bounds.
Then, use the same technique to establish the lower and upper bounds of this sum.
If you want some clarification, just ask, and remember that this is a problem from the IMO.
You're imaginary power problem was quite interesting. Took me half an hour of playing around with it to get to the bottom of it
Good luck with your maths application although i doubt you'll need it
