    I had mine today

    Free lunch, a tedious half hour talk about the course, a slightly more interesting talk by an eccentric German lecturer, an hour being shown around the campus then you get interviewed

    They're all dead quick informal interviews, basically you have an offer anyway. Some people don't do any maths at all in it but I got asked about this infinite sum, someone else was asked about e^ix and stuff, while others talked about their personal statement for the whole thing

    What exactly do the maths challenges test then, if not ones aptitude for mathematics?
    Well, the thing with a lot of the questions is that you just need to see a trick - a way of looking at the question. Most of the solutions are really short, so if you were really good at seeing these tricks you could potentially manage 125 - but that wouldn't necessarily mean you're good at complex problems requiring rigorous proof.

    :eek: Aah right :cool:

    Sounds cool and as expected. It said on my information leaflet that there'd be a buffet - nice! Ok, I may need to revise my PS a bit then just in case?

    Nope, I'm still waiting. But to be fair I sent mine on the 14th, a full week after you - maybe I'll get it tomorrow or Friday. Thanks - fingers crossed :P

    Does UCL require only A* A* B as they already gave you unconditional?

    They don't know what other universities that you've applied to so why would they be given their place alphabetically out of your choices?
