Maths at Bath?Watch
Anyway, my point is, was the standard offer ABB?
i applied for maths and physics, they never really interviewed me, i would have liked one tho but the offer was AAB. i thought this was cause i applied to the M course. but i think they maybe upped it this year.
Bath are ranked higher than Cambridge for maths...
i went to IC, they asked me four math question and at last gave me an offer ABB
As for Bath being top of the league tables, I think this implies that the teaching or facilities, for example,may be better, but as far as having a degree as a means to a job, im sure an oxbridge degree would be much preferable, for me anyway (unfortunately, as I got rejected from oxford)
Yes I noticed that nice little league table they had for themselves. I was trying to work out how they came top, despite scoring below Oxbridge in every of the criteria columns =P
The criteria for subject league tables is RAE ranking (Bath's Maths Dept. is one of only two in the UK to score a maximum rating of 24) and rating for Pure Maths 5 and Applied Maths 5*. Although Cambridge achieved 5* for both Pure and Applied they fell down on RAE ranking thus being displaced by Bath for the 3rd year running!
Perhaps your cynicism is more to do with having being interviewed by someone with a German accent than anything else and Bath have no need of bigots! If you can honestly say I am wrong then I apologise for my judgement but I get really p****d off with xenophobic comments like the one made by you.
