    Received my offer for maths and physics the other day, with no mention of STEP or AEA, i thought (or assumed) that all maths offers contain STEP/AEA, any others applied to maths/ physics had an offer like mine?

    The Maths-Physics course is managed by the Physics department, so I assume that its all Maths courses that are ran by the Maths department that require STEP/AEA.

    Btw I am a current Warwick Maths-Physics student and I never took STEP/AEA

    I'm pretty sure Maths-Physics doesn't require STEP

    Heyy!!
    Is your PS kinda biased towards maths alone or mixture of both maths and physics???

    I'm interested in maths and physics but my PS is only about maths.
    Also, I have applied for MORSE which I have offer for that but still interested in applying for maths and physics...do you think it's worth applying for maths and physics while already holding offer for MORSE or it's most probably they will reject me????

    Or another choice : apply for Maths G100 then when i go there ask them to change to maths and physics.

    Di you think which option is better??

    Thanks

    Based on percentages alone, you are more likely to receive an offer via the Maths course (based on 2008 and 2009 figures it was 93%), doubt it would be as much for maths phys. However, the maths offer is harder and only a third or so of people who firm warwick meet the STEP requirement. Maths phys offer is easier. You can switch from maths to maths phys but not the other way round. Applying to MORSE won't affect your other applications. I'd say sticking is your best bet here.

    Thanks for the reply
    I'm 100% applying for maths(after having long discussions with people) and hopefully I can meet the STEP offer

    Relevant to this, is it possible to change courses from physics to physics w/maths. I have an offer from Warwick physics and if I get A*AA or above (which I hope to) I was wondering whether you think it is a good idea or even possible to ask about switching to a maths with physics course...

    I want to go into theoretical physics btw.

    I've read on their prospectus that you are able to switch from math and physics to math the next year if you do well.

    i had maths and physics pretty much half and half, since most of the unis i applied to i applied for maths and physics or maths with physics. i couldn't decide between the two so i figured i'd do a year and decide which i want to switch to, if any, in the second year.

    i didnt need to do STEP and maths needs A*A*A whereas maths and physics only needs A*AA which is a bonus (at least, that's what i gathered from the site, and my offer matches that).

    If you do decide to change it, it's probably best to try and change it now rather than later, as if you change your course after some certain date (it's during the summer, but not exactly sure when) you get put at the bottom of the pile for accomodation.
