Prep: STEP, reading and getting work experience. I'm doing some at the oxford physics department and I'm trying to get a nuffield bursary.
Awesome grades and good subject choices btw. As for preparation I'm currently trying to find work experience in the finance industry and found the Cambridge maths reading list. Although I wont apply there I'm going to order about 4 or 5 this weekend and read them through the summer. http://www.maths.cam.ac.uk/undergrad...eadinglist.pdf is the list if your interested. How are you planning on preparing?
Yeah I've read some of those already, I'm not sure really. This test is good because it is based on c1 and c2 but it requires some abstract thinking to solve the questions. http://www.maths.ox.ac.uk/prospectiv...specimen-tests. I think I am going to start practising STEP over the summer, but I'm not sure really.
