    Just 71 days! Suppose 15 of them yield to CATAM, then that's just 56 days. If you prepare say 8 courses then that's just 7 days per course.

    Ahh I wish I'd done a maths degree. I still love physics but the whole hand wavyness way most of the courses were taught was quite annoying to me

    I want to say that 15 days for CATAM is an overestimate, but I fear you're closer to the truth than my guess...

    not even sure i want to prepare 30 units worth for catam.

    Roughly, yeah. Depends how much hell you're willing to put yourself through and whether you really want to do a Part III or not (which entails getting a first...)

    And how much hell are you putting yourself through?

    I feel sorry for all of you - hated final year exams. A lot. Good luck

    I'm taking 7 24 lecture courses, a 16 lecture course and another 2 'easy' 24 lecture courses (which are the exam equivalent of a 12 lecture course) for now.

    May start dropping once I start revising and realise I don't remember any of anything.

    Is it really not worth doing any Section I questions for someone with a serious chance at a first? I mean those marks have to rack up somehow, and e.g. a lot of the Number Theory ones look like you can knock them out in a few minutes if you know the bookwork well...

    I'm only going to do Section I's if I finish a section II and there's only 5-10 minutes left or I haven't been able to start a Section II after about 30 minutes to get myself thinking.

    Section II's are worth so many more marks that wasting productive time on Section I's seems coutnerintuitive.

    Template for the proof of RH


    Assume there is a zero of the line, therefore

    There are finitely many primes. Contradiction. There is no zero on the line.

    P.S. Pretty promising line of attack I've discovered.

    Just realised I've spent the past hour and a half working on a needlessly complicated version of the actual problem I'm doing and the real version is about 2 lines long, instead of the multiple paragraphs I've already spent trying to solve the hard version.

    **** catam so hard.

    :mmm:
    It's quite frustrating (and it's also very hard to judge how much you can leave out to still get 15/20). But I think if you're already a fair bit into CATAM by now, you're in good shape. I started it when I came back from the Easter holidays last year and so had to take a few gambles on which of the harder parts to skip... not recommended.
