Homerton told me we find out on the 2nd or 3rd week the college tells us.(Original post by sweeneyrod)
Anyone know when we find out about the Cambridge bursary?
Also, any Homerton maths people know what the preterm 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.
Yeh I have no clue what the course is for, I am going anyway as it is probably good.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if I needed to go on the CompSci one (which is for NatSci maths which I won't be doing) or that Maths one, so I emailed the admissions tutor. To my surprise, she said neither (after asking the DoSes). So I'm assuming the NatSci maths one is irrelevant because I'm not doing that paper, and the Maths one covers one of the maths papers I won't be doing (e.g. it's to get everyone up to scratch on mechanics). But it seems a little odd, so I thought I'd double check, just in case the DoSes got their wires crossed and each assumed I was doing the other course or something.
If you're a mathematician, you have presessions.
If you're a compsci, you have preterm maths sessions.
But if you're a compsci with maths, no need to go either.
How does it work??
Is it because you're something in between?????
Let me know what they say, please. I'm really intrigued.......

Can anyone give me some advice on whether to take Maths A or Maths B with phys natsci?
Is it actually useful to take Maths B, i.e. in year 2/3 will you have already learned maths content for physics and chemistry etc?
I got 100 UMS in both FP2 and FP3 so was considering taking Maths B but my DoS said she highly advises against it. I would only consider taking Maths B if it was actually useful to the course. On the website, it says for those who find maths rewarding, does that mean it will go off on a tangent unrelated to maths for natsci's, or will it be helpful further down the line?
Thanks

If you like maths then do it. My DoS wanted everyone to start to do it and swap to Maths A if they didn't like it.

But in general, I think you'd be better off listening to what your DOS advises. They know what they're talking about and that's why they're in a position of DOS.Last edited by vincrows; 15092016 at 17:54.

aww that doesn't sound too good. I went to the dorset chilli festival last month and the medical tent there was filled with people with cold packs on their eyes
I need to go to that festival someday!

My college have assigned me an extendedlease room when I asked for termtime, and I have almost no chance of using it out of term... I emailed them asking to downgrade and they essentially said I have no choice but to accept it and the much higher rent. Am I right in thinking this is a bit out of order?
