    Pretty much anything, I'd say.

    Yep, anything. The skills acquired from studying Maths are well suited to absolutely any profession (OK an exaggeration). Maths is one of the four most employable degrees (besides Economics, Medicine and Law). And Maths graduates are high up there in average pay packets.

    Well as a mathematician it helps to know stuff like that.

    Applied for Maths at (order of preference): Cambridge, Manchester, Queen Mary, Imperial, Warwick, King's.
    Predicted AAAAa, bit steep I reckon but I can do it!

    Hildabeast is already in Hilda's, Oxford.

    That much I do know. But that's as far as my knowledge extends. Oh yeah, and they don't do too badly in University Challenge either

    They are indeed merging i.e. the Victoria University of Manchester (that's its official name) + UMIST = the University of Manchester. So it doesn't matter which you've applied to, you'll be at the same uni anyway.

    Queen Mary's entry requirement is based on the nuber of A-Levels you're doing. For the standard 3.5 A-Levels it's BCC, 260 points. For 4.5, 320 points I think. I do 4.5 but the guy that interviewed me must've liked me, he said he would suggest to Admissions to give me the 260 points offer. A nice "insurance insurance" if you get what I mean.

    My offer from Warwick was real complicated, but what applies to me is AABa (including A in Maths and A in AS Further Maths), or AAAB including A in Maths. I don't want to take STEP! But if (big if) Cambridge make me an offer I'll have to do STEP so...

    I just didn't like King's much when I went. Plus it's at home in London, and though London is a fabulous city and I love it, I want to move away!

    Hello,

    There was an Austrailan mathematician who once said that there were three types of mathematicians those who could count and those who could not.
