You don't really need to do any preparation for maths, unless you didn't take further maths at A-level.

BTW, maths people, where did you get these problem sheets/reading lists? Did they come in the post/email from your college or did you get them off the maths institute site? I haven't had anything subject specific from my college
I was sent a subset of the aforelinked problem sheets to do BEFORE THE END OF SEPTEMBER POST IT TO ME FAST FAST FAST.

About the email addresses - I got my @worc.ox.ac.uk address today (pronounced work dot ox dot ack dot uck too ) and got so excited! I have it all set up in Mail as my "Nexus" account and all. I feel so proper! (This was before I started reading Numbers and Proofs )

To the physicist - I don't think it is mathsy enough. It wants to prove it's less than 9, not less than or equal to rt41, which is what I can prove

Yeah so if Then surely it follows that because obviously ? (Or am I just not being mathsy enough? )
Yeah this is true right?

Pad it out with something like "since the real numbers form an ordered set and '<' is transitive, the conclusion follows to QED"?

Will do. Not like it's even one of the things I have to send back so doesn't really matter...

Hello there,

I was just wondering whether any English/history/arts students in general have been set any essays fir over the summer. I feel out of practice, and therefore one of my friends' mum (English at 'the other place') has set me one. My essay skills are a bit rusty...I might be here a while.

I've only just realised how hideously dense most academic history is. Yuck. Why do academics use so many loooooong words?

And I think you may be in a minority for that pronunciation. I go for the long-winded tongue twister of every letter.
How long did it take from you registering your account on the OUSS before you could access your Nexus e-mail and Weblearn? Cheers.

No essays for history, just lots of recommended reading.

Nexus email accepted me right away, whilst I had to wait for the following day to get onto Weblearn.

Anyone going to be in Jesus college?
Also wondered, do undergrads have a proper freshers fest party week? Cos Im postgrad but I look 19 and I feel 19 so Im gutted if theres a proper undergrad freshers week which Im not allowed to attend! So far it looks like I get a drinks reception with the college staff...

Ditto. I set up IMAP on Nexus immediately too (and got terribly over-excited by it), but was disappointed by the lack of Weblearn till this morning - commence further over-excitement! (Over something which I'm sure I'll come to hate)...

Edit: Just checked out Weblearn. There's nothing on there! I'd at least expect the Computer Laboratory to use it.

I've just gotten onto my @exeter.ox.ac.uk e-mail address. This is all suddenly becoming rather real.

Hey, I'm doing History at Keble, and while we haven't been set essays we have been set a series of 750 word 'critical appreciations' to write, if that's any help...

I emailed my admissions officer and she said she shouldn't have sent me the Victorian list and the essay, so I no longer have to do it! Even though my list has gotten considerably smaller, my productivity has shrunk as a result Oh dear

I set up Mail on both my phone and laptop as soon as I got my account, it felt much more real knowing that I was all ready to receive emails

I haven't been set any essays, but I had the same worry so might just write one on something for practice. I have been trying to do bits of creative writing so that I don't entirely forget what forming coherent sentences is though.

The Computing Laboratory? What's that?

I reckon the techies are sometimes the hardest to convince to use new things...
