    Is it true that schools contact Oxbridge students the day before results day to tell them to get on early for photos/press if they have met their offer? I know for a fact my school wants me to do a newspaper thing (got asked in May) so do you think I should be expecting to be contacted by my school on 17th as long as I have met my offer?

    Depends on your school, they might ask you to come in/come in earlier

    With me, it'll be a massive hint if they ask me to go in because people don't usually go in for results lol

    Depends on College. Churchill gives out so many offers (compared to the average of 13 or whatever that they accept) for maths so I am not surprised I haven't received anything yet. We probably gonna get something after results day (hopefully).

    Everyone needs to be in school for results day, it is a small school.

    I feel like contacting me the day before about going in earlier for press is 100% indicator of meeting my offer, since I was asked about it a few months ago and it was dependent on meeting my offer.

    I hope that is the case since I am just so impatient to find out how I did.

    Loool hopefully, I have done absolutely no Maths practice over the holidays so I need it (especially FP3 stuff because that just went right over my head when we learnt it) :rofl:

    Good that at least you've taken FP3.

    I presume you are taking the Physical NatSci route? If that is so, Michaelmas term would include some linear algebra and it is not that difficult, especially if you have been introduced to FP3. I don't think any A-level student understands the FP3 module completely, since the content is so much undegraduate linear algebra that most of the theorems are not even proven when they are taught. Like, why the hell does the Cayley-Hamilton theorem work? (rhetorical question, ok Mathmos?)

    Yeah, Phys Natsci. I hated further maths last year but I think I will be grateful for it at uni! We had to fit FP3 in such a short amount of time as well but vectors and matrices were relatively enjoyable so the Maths module should be okay then (if I get in) :P

    When is Cambridge gonna give us accounts? Obviously after results day, but I need it before term starts since I want to get the discount when buying a MacBook. Also, how much is that discount usually?

    A question for those of you who sat edexcel unit 4 econ. On q.4c on why the cedi has depreciated against the dollar, is it valid to say that slower econ growth in Ghana (point 1) and IMF tied restrictions from its bailout lowering future growth prospects and thus fdi (point 2) fine as 2 separate, valid points? The second point isn't on the mark scheme so am unsure if I'll get capped for 1 valid point. (What would the cap be if I were to be capped)

    The cedi depreciated vs the dollar because Mars was between Venus and Gemini, while the moon was in the 4th decile. The rest just follows from extending the karmic fields to the quantum vibration length.
