    Ah, they probably tweaked the facts of his life a bit there to appeal to the audience. When I visited Gonville and Caius college it wasn't much to look at.

    How are you finding your course at Oxford? It sounds interesting.
    Stephan hawking did his phd at tit hall... Hes a fellow at gonville and caius now

    If something bad happens and you can't make it to a STEP exam or you're completely unfocused and fail it, no uni for you... I guess you're willing to take that risk



    Which college was the one where he was shown in his room when doing his PhD in the film?
    Yh thats true. I am willing to take that risk. Bearing in mind im taking all 3 step exams hopefully ill get a 2 in one of them atleast 😁. Which is what is required for warwick.

    Thanks for the correction. I wasn't sure as I've heard both mentioned with his name.

    Why are you sitting STEP I if it's not part of your Cambridge offer? I'm guessing it's part of other uni offers

    It's easier then step 2 and 3 and if i miss step 3 a high mark in step 1 looks good ie(S). And it's good practice for the ones that matter as i've never sat an exam of that difficulty that will count so much towards my future. It makes the warwick place more probable then counting on step 2 or 3. As warwicks offer is a 2 in any step paper.

    Thank you. I'm in my 3rd year and really enjoying it. The workload is a bit intense. It has sort of got me interested in the fields of cognitive science and AI, so I'll be doing a master's in machine learning as applied to language at Cambridge next year.

    I have an offer from Clare.

    Are you joining the 4th year of the Computer Science course at Cambridge?

    Do a PhD in self-replicating robots

    The MPhil is with the engineering dept.- I think engineering departments have a habit of stealing machine learning guys from compsci depts. But as I understand it compscis at Cam can do most/all of the machine learning modules in the engineering dept. I was also slightly peeved that the minimum requirement for a masters in CompSci at Cambridge is a first. A first from Oxford is hard, and though I am aiming for that it put me off a little bit.

    Is your degree grade determined by your rank in the year? That's the case for Cambridge Engineering which I find sad. I feel like it would reduce the camaraderie between fellow students.

    I see. Grades permitting I might see you around the Engineering dept. next year then. Not that either of us would know who the other was.

    The Uni4 bus comes past your door to west Cambridge and in the first two years you are mostly in the centre of Cambridge so not as bad as you think.

    Any point forking out on getting to Durham?

    Like I love Bristol, so should I bother visiting Durham just for the insurance choice?
