    Remember when we used to argue about who was better between Cambridge and Oxford?

    Well I've made a major u-turn in deciding to go for a maths major at Cambridge... :facepalm:

    Don't know why... But I feel Oxford is better for it. Especially as they ask you to take other entrance examinations I think... (LNAT!)

    Oh jeez. :facepalm:

    Of course they're both rigorous, but I think Cambridge has more support (in that they'll do everything in their power to prevent you dropping out) for its successful applicants...

    That, and I have more connections inside Cambridge University than I do elsewhere.

    Still not sure though. I still have a feeling that Oxford has a better student life.

    True.

    By not having to worry about the SAT, I should be more likely to get the A*A*A*A*A* + STEP for the entry requirements

    I see the sciences only being a recommendation for a few of the colleges there though.

    Yep. Looking to get Econ and Comp Sci finished by the time I go to college.

    Well I'd certainly swap comp sci for physics

    Oh well, you'll still have a good chance!

    I'll explain that Comp Sci was chosen because of my wish to extend my exploration of the intricacies of mathematics, as well as serving as useful extractor of discipline, work ethic and creativeness.

    Hopefully. . Counting on ramping up my revision concentration ten fold by the end of my GCSEs.

    Precisely. It should hopefully make up for the lack of Physics...

    I'll dominate subjects when I want to. If Cambridge becomes my target, I'll want to dominate Maths.

    Why not Cambridge Economics? That would be perfectly fine for hedge/quant developer fund jobs.

    Did so much revision I panicked when I hit the trigonometry and surds questions. As a result, it bumped me about 5 marks off an A*. :facepalm:

    Not stressing myself out as much this time. Still remember 95% of it so I'll only need to do a minimal amount of revision.

    Ah, well! All's well that ends well, hopefully it'll end well

    I remember doing a markscheme unofficially for an edexcel paper...

    :facepalm: I made some silly mistakes, still would have had.an A* but as an m/s I had to be 100% right.
