    Get a very good bike lock, preferably D-lock.
    Bike theft in Cambridge is the second highest in UK after Glasgow, apparently.

    And helmet! I know a few students who had really serious bike accident. With one of them, it was definitely his helmet that saved him from permanently brain damaged or worse.
    Too many students riding around without a helmet, but there's no guarantee it won't be you who gets involved in an accident next. After all those years of very hard work to get into Cambridge, it's silly your life is ruined because of injury (or worse) you could've avoided. (Or make it less serious)

    And High-vis things are very good in autumn /winter, on top of bike lights. Make yourself very visible to drivers.

    I believe some are in New Museum site and I'm pretty sure none are in West Cambridge.

    Well, if I'm not already, that is...

    I'm guessing you got in too? Since success seems to be proportional to number of posts...
    It's a fact. Someone very clever has done the analysis

    Although correlation does not equal causation...

    Some more stats (I clearly need to get out more!): These are all for UK candidates.

    For Edexcel, the proportion getting an A* in the last few years:
    2015 8.7%
    2014 8.8%
    2013 8.0%
    For each of the 4 years, the proportion of girls getting an A* was between 50% and 100% higher than for boys.

    The JCQ stats for UK candidates for all of the exam boards:
    2016 8.8%
    2015 9.7%
    2014 9.0%
    2013 9.2%

    So fairly consistent and MUCH lower than for Maths (not to mention FM).

    haha nice. The only problem is my maths is the sort of stuff that needs a lot of corrections so pen + my handwriting is unreadable
