# STEP Prep Thread 2016 (Mark. II) Watch

1. (Original post by Insight314)
Using direct proof:

Axiom 1: Stephen Siklos is the set with subset of STEP.
Axiom 2: STEP is a subset with elements I, II, III; it's cardinality is a non-fixed positive integer, solely controlled by Stephen "the madman" Siklos.

By considering the above axioms, we can see that the cardinality of set Stephen Siklos is 13. Since 1 + 3 = 4, then through direct proof we have proven that the new cardinality of the set STEP, as outlined in Axiom 2, is one more than its cardinality over the real elements of the family. Therefore, there must be a STEP IV. QED

One of these days I'm going to make a new TSR account called Stephen Siklos and post in this thread, to see what happens.

Wait a minute.

1. STEP is made up of three letters.
2. STEP is also made up of three papers - I, II, III.

However, STEP is not made up of three letters, so by using proof by contradiction it has been proven that STEP is also not made up of three papers. STEP IV is being secretly hidden by Siklos confirmed. QED Illuminati controls STEP confirmed.

Try to refute my logic, you mortal peasants.

Pro-tip: You can't.

Insight314's Lemma:

There always exists a bijection between the set of letters in the name of a set of exams and the set of the exams itself.

There are a bunch of STEP papers, possibly uncountably many,
Each step paper has a symmetrical domain about the point q=7, this each step paper can be formed by an odd and even function (but **** functions let's use numbers)
We know this is true for any step n where n is greater than or equal to one, by induction which I'm too lazy to type out

STEP III 2015:
Spoiler:
Show
I thought this was a weird paper, due to the three questions on proof that weren't on any normal A-level stuff at all (not complaining, because they were quite nice).

2 - pretty straightforward
5 - also pretty straightforward, except I couldn't get the if part at the start of (ii)
6 - gave myself 2 marks for an attempt at half of (i)
7 - nice question
8 - would have been an easy full if I hadn't for some reason differentiated sin as -cos and vice versa. Instead it was an easy half.
12 - (i) fairly easy, although a bit dodgy that you didn't seem to have to prove that Rn's p.g.f. was always G(x). Didn't make much progress in (ii), and looking at the mark scheme it looked horrendous
13 - drew a little graph, gave up

Overall 73, a solidish 1. Not bad, although it was a bit odd I wouldn't mind a paper like it this year.
Should've attempted Q1, was lush (even though it took me ages lol). Well done anyway .

Hmm, not only do the first four letters of his name spell out STEP, his initials spell out the best STEP grades...

He's hinting that he couldn't care less about STEP I XD. (It's for all the other peasant universities lol.)

Don't worry, I'm not actually banned

Just removed my avatar, and changed my text thingy

Btw, if I were banned, the posts would have been removed from the history

Newbie? "Joined March 2015"

Why are you apologising lol?

You'd have thought that TSR would distinguish banned users more clearly, so that un-banned users can't pretend to be banned - just like they do with the Community Team and Support Team
18. Mathemagicien. Looked at your solution to 8 and it seems I've had completely wrong idea about the approximations. Would I get anything or?

Newbie is just a phrase m8. I guess I should've said "I am unknowledgeable of this banned trend."

I wouldn't know, but I'd imagine you'd lose quite a few marks, if this is what you wrote in the exam, sorry
