    I'm the Christ's offer that had his grade changed from 1 to S in Step II .
    However they didn't inform me about the mark I got and I want to know.
    I guess we are talking about one or a couple of points ,but still I wanna know.
    What should I do? Ask anyone?
    if you want to PM me with your full name and other A Level results then I'll let you know privately. Sorry to do it this way but it's necessary to ensure confidentiality.

    If I PM you my STEP results and A level results with my full name can I have my grades upgraded to an S? Its only 5 or so marks not that much.
    Thanks hehe

    I just recently received my results and i'm just trying to decide between Oxford and Cambridge and i was just wondering given my set of results which i'll post below, just based on that alone which of the two i'll have a higher chance of getting into to study mathematics. Also, i would really appreciate if someone could just recommend me a few readable math books that i could use to broaden my mathematical knowledge while also providing me something interesting to write in my PS. Results: Math (A*) Further Math (A*) Physics (A*) Chemistry (A*) Overall UMS: 97.5 Step paper 1 grade 1. Singapore GCE O level: 6 A1s
    I did my A levels in the UK but I will be applying as an international student as I am singaporean
    Thank you so much for reading this! Pretty new to this forum so i'm not really sure how to do the spoiler thing to cover my results. Sorry!

    Do you like ticking boxes and completing the square? Yes, go to Oxford.
    Do you value ur maths work and want your good solid 1 in Step I to be acknowledged? Go to to cambridge

    But yeah I honestly think cambridge would be more suitable/easier if you can get good step grades.
    Have you seen these reading lists?
    More A levelly type stuff:

    If there are any particular undergrad. things u may want to look at some of the books at the bottom of each course section:

    I'm sure that can be managed. Cambridge naturally lets medieval historians tamper with STEP results!

    Christ's Admissions Hi, is it possible to ask how many engineers from Christ's this year have met the STEP 1 requirement, i.e. gotten grade 1 or above? If possible, may I further ask how many scored an S? Thanks!!

    Haha. Quick Question(i dnt know if you know the answer).
    But were the number of 1,1+this year ~160 like most other years?
    Also how many places have been given approximately? It is still 250 right? Despite the student cap lifting stuff.

    We've not increased the number of places. Cambridge's been uninterested generally in the raising of the cap.

    I can't tell you how many got 1,1 (It would take a while to find out and it's not that interesting for me, unlike you guys!). I can say that 26.5% of entrants for a 1 or an S in STEP II and 36.6% in STEP III if that's of interest.

    We always were the more enthusiastic bunch, but thanks for reminding me. I'll have to set one up soon.

    Do you know other christian mathematicians or Stem/step guys ?
    P.S. I think christians is a nickname for you know who. I despise it but i admit it's more convenient.
