    Hahaha, I like Maths, but not as much as those guys in STEP prep threads or Mathemagicien. What made you think I was going to be doing Maths at Cambridge this year?

    Hello! My Name is Ola and I'm 18 years Old about to start my AS levels at Tower Hamlets College I recently retook my GCSE's and finally got the grades i need to study the courses I want to study. I went from C's in all my science subjects to B's. I am going to study AS physics, chemistry and maths hoping for an A* in maths and A's in chemistry and physics. I would have to say my favorite subject would be chemistry and physics because I find the theoretical aspects of those subjects just so interesting. I thinking about studying Nuclear Engineering at Uni but I'm still open to more course options

    I took a look at some STEP past papers and was overwhelmed by the problems. Sounds like you're really good at Maths. Take Additional Further Maths if you can.

    I like browsing the STEP prep threads because of the banter they have with each other. Dedicated Maths students are funny to me.

    Kind notice from a fellow Y13...

    If you're in Y12 and you're going to an open day this Autumn, please do not go to any of the talks! It's really unfair on the Y13s who are there to see them but have fully booked because a few people in lower years have taken the seats.

    By all means look around if you want to, but you've got next year to attend the talks. Y13 peeps don't have that chance.

    I'm an aspiring future Cambridge CompSci

    At GCSE I got:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*ABB - 10 A*s, 1 A, 2 Bs

    Mathematics - A*
    Further Mathematics - A*
    English Language - A*
    English Literature - A*
    Biology - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A*
    Economics - A*
    Computing - A*
    History - A*
    Art - A
    Classical Civilisation - B
    French - B

    The B in class civ really bothered me as I was predicted A/A*, and the French was minorly disappointing as I wanted an A - though I still made good progress, in Year 10 I had a D in French and an E in Art! Oh well though, I don't think Cambridge will have a massive issue with 2 Bs though as the rest is good and they don't care about GCSEs too much anyway, do they?

    At A-level I'm studying:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Mathematics (Pre-U)
    Further Mathematics (Pre-U)
    Physics (A-level)
    Computer Science (A-level)

    + Self-Studying Economics AS-level + doing an EPQ

    Gl all for the next two years

    - Introduce yourself:

    Hello, my name is Francis! I start sixth form on Tuesday.

    - What are your hobbies and interests?

    I like to write and read. My all time favourite book is currently Wuthering Heights. I love European history, in particular Russian history - and anything to do with empires or monarchs or conspiracies I will be interested in. I love biology and chemistry. You'll often find me reading random Wikipedia articles for hours. TV shows > movies.

    What subjects are you planning to take?

    Biology, chemistry, maths and philosophy and ethics.

    Favourite subject?

    I love all the subjects I'm planning on taking - but biology has to take the crown.

    I'm considering doing a natural sciences degree (providing I get in) and then doing a postgraduate conversion course for Law, as opposed to doing a straight law degree.

    Exactly! I can go from looking up something on a tv show I'm watching to the demographics of Uzbekistan. It takes up the majority of my day tbh
