    Erm you get there and wait for everyone to arrive. I chatted to this second yr student who was really nice!. Then you have like a 45 minute (maybe) talk on general UCL things. Then you will either have a lecture thing (ours was on pi) or a tour. If you have the tour first, you have the lecture after etc. Then you have a tour. I just spoke to as many people as possible tbh... then you get back and chat to people some more. Trust me though, they have given you an offer so wear what you are comfortable in. I was comfortable in my informal wear =D. They have some maths problems on the tables also... i didnt do any of them =p

    To any Warwick applicants/offer holders...

    do you intend to sit AEA or STEP (probably STEP 1) or both? And why?

    I've been told AEA is easier than STEP 1.

    Probably just STEP 1 because I was talking to my maths teacher about it and he kind of just assumed I was just going to sit STEP 1 :P

    Getting a distinction in AEA i don't believe is significantly easier if at all easier than getting a 2 in STEP 1, i guess it depends on personal preference. But yeah, i reckon it's probably a good idea to hedge your bets and do both.

    I think I'll be doing STEP 1 and STEP 2, so that gives me two chances in a sense (I'll do STEP 3 if i get a Cambridge offer), I'd probably only consider doing AEA aswell if i feel i'm struggling with STEP, as it's another different kind of exam to prepare for.

    I'll be sitting the AEA even if I don't have a firm or insurance offer including it, I just like it. STEP is another matter, I'm really hoping that Cambridge will give me the chance to show them what I'm made of so we'll see.

    It would more likely be mechanics, although they could ask stats (but would be less common though)
