    Have you done FM? I'd have thought it would be STEP 1 or 2 since you're Scottish. Just out of curiosity, I haven't applied to Imperial :P
    No, cos I'm doing AHs. It is strange. On the other hand, AH maths covers almost all the pure stuff in FM (the only I know of not covered is Taylor Series, though there may be more), and Stats will probably cover the statistics? Haven't looked at the syllabus in detail. I might email them to confirm that it's right, but I'll wait a couple of months, because if I get an Oxford offer it doesn't matter and there's no hurry (and I need to check how much I'd need to learn for STEP III).



    Other Warwick people, did you get the form about STEP help? I don't know who to put as my 'School Contact' - did you just do the head of maths?

    Thank you! I'm sure you'll get yours soon.



    Yes, STEP 2 or 3.
    They didn't specify for me "/. Just said 'and a 2 in STEP' or something like that. Oh wait, is this for imperial?

    Yeah, I know AH maths covers a lot of the FM stuff - just seems a bit strange that even Cambridge usually let people away with STEP 1/2 if they're Scottish and ICL aren't.

    Oh I've got Dr. Julia Gog and Dr. Julia Goedecke for one of the interviews, and Prof. Richard Weber and Dr Richard Hinkl for the other... looks like three of our interviewers are the same! I have one interview an hour after the other, should be interesting...
    I've the same 4 people but in a slightly different mix

    Although in my first interview I also have Dr Jenny Gage.

    How specific are you going to be with the "areas of specific interest"? I'm probably going to try keep mine a bit vague still hehe.

    Got two offers yesterday: Sussex and Reading!

    Exciting stuff. Can't wait to be around people who actually WANT to do maths, because my A-level class do my head in.

    Even the people who don't mind it still get annoyed if I ask a teacher for more background info about a topic so I can understand where it comes from a bit more.
    I'm the only person I know applying for Maths hehe!
    Thanks btw

    Yeah, we have two teachers and one of them gives great background information (the stats teacher too, funnily enough) but the other one is an idiot and can't even explain anything properly anyway, so background information from him just makes everyone more confused!
    Ah yeah. My two offers are from the two universities I applied to to fill in the gaps, though I'm starting to like Reading as my insurance choice since figuring I only need ACC or BBB to get in. Where is your first choice? Mine is Lancaster; an offer from them would make my day, or even my year!

    Aww both my teachers are very good. My class is the first my stats teacher ever had for A level as he is a newly qualified teacher so 8 years ago he was sat in our position which is good so he can relate to us.. but because hes just finished uni he loves telling us extra stuff that hes learnt that we dont need for S2!
    Same! I even changed one of them very last minute so.... Same!!! I really want to go to lancaster!!!!! But i'd be equally happy to get an offer from Leeds Sheffields in between..... Where else did you apply?

    Oh wow! There's a couple of others on here that I've spoken to that want Lancaster as their top choice too! Everything about that uni seems wonderful. The fact that it's up north (cost of living is nice 'n cheap!) the course, the accommodation (especially the townhouses! <3 ) Here's hoping we both get an offer! It'll definitely be my firm if I do. Apparently they're really laid back about giving out information and wait for ages to do it, so I'm not too worried that they haven't replied to me yet! Though one person on here received a letter about Maths + Stats at Lancaster and that they'd got an offer, but the uni hadn't put it onto UCAS track yet so they don't know the grades :')

    I know I just love the uni, the whole college thing and its location and the fact it has lowish grades compared to its top 10 uni status!! I hope we do yeah but i doubt we'll hear anything until jan though :/ Im a bit unsure though....i'm not sure if I chose the right course Yeah either that or leeds will be my firm!! I prefer leeds' course but i like the unis equally so we'll have to see.... No i dont think anyone gets acknowledgements from them but i hear a few courses are getting offers.
