    I'm not sure I have any specific stats on it tbh. But on the basis that STEP is the best predictor of Tripos success you can assume it's the most important part of an offer.

    Or do you mean the Tripos predictor stats? If so I'll have to dig that out later when I'm back on a PC.

    Yeah, this one. Duke Glacia posted it in the STEP Prep Thread a while ago but I can't find it.

    Would getting a good grade in step 1 make up for doing badly in step 2/step 3 even if your offer only includes step 2 and 3?
