    If you wna go to a maths school. Go to st pauls.
    Are you talking about St Paul's School (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Pau...hool,_London)? You think I am a posh boy or something, don't have the monies for dem posh schools.

    Do BMO if you dont get in, makes u better at maths, tons of stuff you havent done, makes u like 20x better at maths and it will work at ur weaknesses (i believe are NT and geometry?).
    You definately won't be lost if you get rejected as you have 2 years left to apply.
    I will most definitely do maths competition, I need to work on my number theory and Euclidean geometry, just like you supposed. Also, I wanna finish all of part IA together with the example sheets. I will be done with V&M and Groups by start of September, so that's good. I will definitely be doing a lot of maths if the unfortunate were to happen, but what about a school? Should I even go to one since I will be self-studying all that ****? Will I be treated like a gap year student?

    (Original post by physicsmaths)
    I will be however, can't take a gap year, probably will have to go to a **** uni through clearing and I am not talking about imperial or warwick cause they are obviously not ****.
    You will be fine, you most definitely met your Imperial offer. Also, I really believe Homerton will take you in nonetheless since you would have exceeded their standard offer in the first place. And your STEP results will be like a few marks off an S grade, if not an S grade in the first place!

    If you don't like alcohol very strong or bitter, asti is a nice wine to start off with as it is quite sweet and relatively low in alcohol. It took me a while to get acclimatised to the taste and sensation of alcohol once I turned 18, but since I've had a few drunken nights it now takes the equivalent of a whole bottle of prosecco and a few vodka and lemonades before I get drunk
    Definitely gonna try that one! I have never tried wine before, so might as well start with Asti wine.

    Wait, so does the taste get better?

    Oh **** fam. I wanna say "Bring it on" but I am scared now.

    I haven't measured my height but I think I am like 5'10, I will let Mathemagicien decide whether that is right.

    Well, my experience wasn't this bad. I didn't like the taste of Guinness, was able to drink half a pint but then just went and got some Coke since the taste just wasn't nice. I could've drank it but didn't see the point of it, I didn't even want to get drunk. As for the vodka, I drank Smirnoff at a party once and it was about 37%. There wasn't any taste except your throat starts burning after you take a sip, but I didn't drink that much since I didn't wanna get drunk for my parents to see (they allow me but would be awkward to see a Cambridge wannabe drunk lol).
    Maybe I tasted some particularly vile stuff... it wasn't the burning, it was the taste of it that put me off. I'll have to do some more experimenting.

    What would a Cambridge wannabe be like when s/he(/it) is drunk?

    (Original post by physicsmaths)
    All of those.
    Health.
    I don't need it to have fun.
    Plus I am religious.

    I think I'd still be boring even if I were completely drunk. The craziest thing I can think of me realistically doing is looking at another person's shoe, rather than my own.

    I think I'm around the same...

    Btw, am I the only one who measures height in metres? I had hoped fellow mathmos would also share my distrust of Imperial measurements... but no (silly sheeple!)

    Lol no. I havent met my imperial offer. Might have got A*B to AB. Offer is AA, yes i ****ed up firther add cause i got U's in S4 D1 and D2 haha. Lol
    But no you definatey won't be treated like a gapper no way.
    Do some other a levels or something like computing, Further Add, economics which can take 2 years or 1 if you want.

    Another thing to try is also cider (love Koppaberg and Bulmers) because they do some really nice flavours.

    Once you've started drinking alcohol more frequently you definitely start to like the taste and the sensation a bit more Ngl some very cheap vodkas I think still taste like nail polish remover, but once you find nice cocktails and start to buy decent but affordable alcohol the whole experience becomes a lot more enjoyable!

    Yeah, well it depends on the alcohol concentration. If it is as high as 35% (the Smirnoff I drank) then you get some unpleasant burning sensations in your throat. But since you had beer, then I am not surprised the taste is what put you off. The only beer I drank is Guinness with my gf, and she even said that Guinness is pretty vile.

    Haha, not sure really. What I meant to say is that it would be a bit awkward for my parents to see me drunk since they usually see me as a stereotypical academic boy i.e not go and get drunk at parties.

    I usually only use metres, but got used to use imperial measurements for height after all my lads started using it. Also, can you approximate my height, if you still remember me? inb4 I am a manlet.

    I'm very bad at estimating heights, since I usually only see the tops of peoples' heads. But 5'10 sounds a little on the tall side, no offense...

    Damn. You will still be taken in though, they would be retarded (not only Imperial) to just reject you as a result of that.

    Phew, that's good to hear. Yeah, I might do other A-levels, Further Add for sure since I haven't done any stats modules. If I were to do any A-levels, I am doing them in 1 year just like I did the 4 A-levels I am applying with right now. Also, definitely re-applying this October if the unfortunate happens in results day. Btw, if I do get rejected on 18th August, I need to regulate my A-level workload since I wanna have enough time to finish part IA (course material and example sheets), do BMO and other maths competitions, re-take STEP if I have to so will have to do past papers again, and also maybe take a job at some point since I don't have any work experience.

    Okay Insight, I'll grant that that was probably an underestimate (no offense Serine Soul, just probably means I had bad judgement). 5ft9 is my revised estimate.

    STOP! I am getting triggered.

    I am not the height that Mathemagicien is saying I am. I promise!

    Yeah I think 5'4 doesn't make sense given his gf is 5'5 and he's taller than her...

    Why are people discussing height anyway?

    This actually triggers me to unbelievable measures. I am not shorter than a girl.

    Btw, how tall are you?

    Okay. I am gonna ask one of my Year 11 lads who is about the same height as me what his height is. Watch it's gonna be higher than 5'9''

    I think the Christ's AT has said somewhere that the chances of a re-applicant getting an offer in the next cycle after missing their offer is quite slim.
    I don't think that's true actually. I'm pretty sure I've seen stats that reapplicants do better than 1st time applicants.
