In general, how was it?
Was there something about estimating the number of stars in the universe?

I'm not sure about that...don't know about the entire university, but for maths there's certainly a lot more boys than girls...I haven't got any yet either
you dont have to if your girl is the girl in your signature

It didn't go too badly. I'd never heard of it before Tuesday so I really couldn't say what counts as a decent mark, but if I had to guess mine I'd say about 70/80 out of 100.

Yeah there was something about estimating the stars but that wasn't one of the questions I chose to do. The lack of a formula booklet ruled that out as I didn't know the stuff for that Q.

12. Anyone else got an interview in manchester on thursday!??
13. Hi, Im not applying to uni this year (Im in year 12). I have a questions about further maths; I hope to definitely apply to Cambridge and Warwick next year, and probably Imperial, however my school does further maths differently (AFAIK)- this year I will do a full A Level in single maths as opposed to an as level in maths and an as level in further maths, and I will do full A Level further maths next year (OCR). Will this be a problem with the unis I mentioned??
Thanks

No, your situation is very common.

Didn't get the Open Day invitation either... hence, I'm pretty worried

Application was processed 12th Oct.
I would recommend you to call Ucas on Monday; just check if there's anything wrong
I sent Ucas at same day with you.
Imperial said they will send openday invitation to every applicant

If you think that's impressive, consider this:

No, plenty of schools do it like that, a minority, but a sizable proportion. My college does it the same as yours, and I have applied to Cambridge and Warwick for Maths like you will next year. I've got an offer from Warwick so far, so it won't be a problem for those unis. It looks good if you already have an A* in maths, as it shows you have done well in C3 and C4, which are harder than many of the AS modules. Some unis don't like you not to have done all your A-levels in one sitting, Edinburgh i think care, but the ones you mentioned don't. So yeah, it's no problem at all, it's fairly common in large sixth form colleges like mine.
