    Thank you - Girton! Not the most glamorous but at the end of the day, Cambridge is Cambridge
    I think it looks really nice there! It's got a swimming pool hasn't it? What UMS scores did you get in your AS?

    I got an offer from Nottingham a few weeks ago, about 10 days after I sent off my UCAS. I had a maths interview at Manchester last week, it wasn't that formal, quite short. Mine was just a chat about what I like about maths, and a friend of mine said her interviewer spent half of the time asking her about A level art

    Did they ask you any maths questions? Also, have you heard anything back since the interview?

    I didn't get asked a maths question and neither did my friend, according to the students I met around 50% get a maths question. I've had an email saying they are in the process of making me an offer but I haven't actually received an offer/rejection yet

    Thank you! C1, C2, C3, S1, S2, M1, M2. Actually I apologise - I didn't do 3 FM modules and so I didn't get an A in further maths.

    Yes, they ask me 16 overall at the French Baccalaureate (A*) with 16 maths (A*) and 15 physics-chemistry (A).

    I passed the MAT and received an offer maybe 5 hours later.
