    Anybody any ideas about what qualifies as 'household income' for bursaries? My sister earns money but I don't know if that has to be added to the total household income as I'm not dependent on her?
    Siblings don't count for the Student Loan calculation so it's probably the same for bursaries.

    I know! Feel like my grades are gonna slip at any moment as well (they already are doing so for English... whoops)



    Good golly gosh I hope so! I would sell my liver to satan to be there this time next year.



    10 hours off what?

    Sucks that they make you do extra stuff? I know nothing about STEP so please excuse my ignorance, is your offer difficult? Think you'll make it?
    From when I got my offer. It is difficult, yeah. STEP I isn't so bad but II-III are quite hard for me atm, managed 4 questions on an II paper over 2 days but not timing myself. I would like to think I'd make it.

    STEP is very very hard. Maths is the only subject where significantly more are made offers than places exist because of the way they can control acceptances by the skew on step results

    Are you already a student there? I think I remember speaking to you in summer after an exam.

    Winter pool, I applied to kings but fell to pieces in my physics and chemistry interview and my performance in the test and maths interviews couldn't quite redeem how spectacularly bad I was...

    Last year they gave maths offers to 530 people, only 170 met the STEP 1,1 requirement and they still let in 236 people.

    Its pretty hard
    Lmao makes me pleased to be a lowly Philosophy offer-holder

    Definitely. It's just that the author of the thread doesn't update it anymore.

    When does everyone intend to write to accept/reject their offer (or if you already have when did you)? And what did you write ?
