    Its pretty impressive to get an offer twice - I imagine there's a reason they thought it was worth giving you another go, e.g. Hungary Camp

    Well, he was given an offer last year, I would be surprised if Cambridge rejects someone for applying with 1,1,3 lol.

    I suppose it depends on whether they see it as a lucky 1 in STEP II, or an unlucky 3 in STEP III

    It's a 1, 1, 3. Not a 1, 3. i.e: the evidence is in favour of STEP III being a bad day given that STEP I and STEP II were 1's.

    I thought STEP I was meant to be a lot easier than II and III; i.e. a medium 1 in STEP I is equivalent to less than a 1 in STEP II or III, which might be interpreted as evidence against III being a bad day

    No, not really. Most people tend to do the same on STEP I and II.

    Apparently not zacin. I asked ATS about this and he and he said that not many people who take SII/SIII take S1 but from the data they have students tend to get a grade lower in S2 than in S1

    But idk, which is easier.

    Na I have definately got A*A*A*B or A*A*AB in A levels and mostnlikely high 1,1 maybe S,1 in any order if lucky hell I could get SS but its unlikely. Atleast I know I am a few marks off SS which 'should' get me in but being on a gapy year n stuff n not getting SS is pretty **** tbh.
    Hoping bmo2 will help, dos said it will help alot.
    My college last year let in people people with 2,2 1,3 1,2 etc so hopefully I should be ok.
    Pretty pleased I might get A* in Physics, If I do, I will feel like I deserve a place on the IPhO team.

    I am not gonna spoil anything, but I have never been so shocked after an episode of GoT. I am extremely impressed with GRRM's writing, I guess I should read the books at some point.

    Gonna do some more maths, and then continuing to binge watch Season 6. I can't believe how good it is.

    Just making sure I chill/relax during summer and not burn out from maths.

    I still manage 5+ hours of maths a day, which is more than you will ever do, old chap.

    True I will never do that, only if I get into Camvridge will I ever do that.
    Atleast I know it wasn't lack of 'talent' for not getting in and was just my laziness for not learning 5 maths modules until june/may.
    I hope you fail your gcse's lol.
