    Anyone know when we find out about the Cambridge bursary?

    Also, any Homerton maths people know what the pre-term course is about? I've been told that as a CompSci w. Maths I don't need to go on either course, but I'm a bit worried that I'll turn up on the 1st and everyone else will be experts in vector calculus or something.
