    Actually there are infinitely many (real) solutions of the form exp(-pi/2 +2kpi)
    ah yes. this is true. off topi but do you do well on step 3 complex numbers problems? i cant seem to get my head around them. i tend to stick to differential equations and mechanics

    Just about life in general. About their work, anything they do socially - anything and everything really. They'll also be taking questions, with some dedicated Q&A hours on occasion.

    (If I get in) I'll definitely be following this! I've never met or heard from a Cambridge Philosophy student.
    It should be good! In the bio it should tell you what year and college the student is at too.

    yesyes I know but stop getting caught up in all the maths and just think about what you're doing! I see too many mathematicians acting like robots and not appreciating what it means
    yh i still feel like you do every time i think about mathematics. eulers relation between 0 1 pi e and i. was the most beautiful piece of maths i seen. i was a baffled yr 12 kid and i sat there in awe as my teacher proved the infinite expansions then relates it to i then proved de moivres theorem then stu k pi in to get the relation.

    Physical natsci for King's. I like physics more than maths because it gives a meaning to the numbers. But maths is such a useful tool and so cool to use when messing with people's heads! Best of luck to you too!!

    I've read several people know saying that they were rejected because they didn't seem confident in their interviews, which has **** me up really because one of mine I acted excessively nervously, though the other one wasn't so bad.

    Good god this is absolutely torturous. They shouldn't put us through this the evil little *******s. I don't even want to go anyway, I quit!

    Feels like most people re interviewed have incredible ums which makes me worried about the standard of the people in the pool who will be getting straight offers!! Surely this must be very high?! Eg. 95+ums average w/ 7+ interview score?
    But surely that's what's expected ... Those candidates that are re-interviewed tend to be ones that look great On paper but then perform much worse than expected at interview. (For various reasons)

    There used to be a lot of documents online in regards to the winterpool but now you need to use CamSis log-in to access them. If I remember the just correctly ... Based on a candidates academic and interview results (and extenuating circumstances) interviewers are asked to place a candidate in 1 of a few categories. (Definite offer/rejection, re-interiew required for reasons above,and others I cannot remember )

    I also remember there being documents from the university to the colleges outlining the 'protocol' for the pool. Basically say if two colleges express and interest in you (at the correct time period) college A willing to make direct offer and college B requiring a re-interview ... College A would take precedence (obviously a lot more details in documents ... Like if two colleges express interest to make an offer and no agreement can be made they have to flip a coin lol .. Think maybe summer pool though)

    so if you are invited for re-interview, you chances are you won't be contacted with a direct offer ... Then again anything can happen

    I ran 700m to my second interview so when I got there I was puffing quite a bit (my first interview ran late) I'm pretty sure the interviewers thought I was having a massive panic attack because of it so I really really hope that's not true

    Lmao! I'm sure they didn't mind that. I think it's just when nerves turn into missing questions or answering them incorrectly and stuff (which I did!).

    I guess I can say now, that he asked me [details removed by moderator] I was like 'um.... uh... [details removed by moderator] ... uh ... sorry dude idk'. !

    As long as nothing like that happened to you I reckon you're fine
