    Even the scarfs? Sniff I like mine so much. I will never trust another word my mum says. She assured me that wearing your college's scarf was normal practise during her time at the other place, back in the day. Grrr.
    This is why we don't trust the other place.

    Can someone link me that maths for natural science workbook? My college linked me the 2014 one, but I've seen somewhere on here a 2016 link, with some further maths content aswell?

    Might have been a trinity college book, would be greatly appreciated

    In all conversations, or just when people comment on you getting into Cambridge?

    Hahaha, gotta uphold the maths stereotype. I'm just bad at talking to cooing relatives.

    At least there'll be none of that at Cambridge, right? I'd expect the focus to be on the people who are the least behind XD

    It is indeed annoying. Still I find it less difficult than trying to convince people that STEP was hard.

    Hahaha, yeah! We'll all know what it feels like, hopefully. I'll probably still find something to be awkward about, knowing me! :lol:

    Oh gosh, yes! People don't quite understand the importance of "Cambridge's entrance exam for Maths" - I imagine they think it's some simple multiple choice formality like what they had to go to get into sixth form or middle school. It's deeply irritating at times.

    My sister (going into yr12 now) is a nightmare - she keeps going on about how she's smarter than me because when she takes her BMAT she'll get 'full marks' and 'the BMAT is harder than STEP'
