    The college I applied to gives a pure and applied interview. What do you think I should expect in the applied? mechanics or stats... hmm im hoping some differential equations or something
    Neither. Expect two pure interviews. I recall sitting on the corner of Sainsbury's/Green Street frantically reading my mechanics text book 30 mins before my first interview last year - went in there - there was nothing of the sort.

    UCL won only watched the end after watching eastenders
    I'm going to conjecture that they won't win the whole competition this year but they certainly did well against Warwick.

    the whole competition thing doesn't interest me.....knowledge and intelligence are two different things in my book

    funny UCL just emailed me whilst typing this reply for an open day on the 7th

    Oh ok. That would probably explain why you have already gotten an offer from St Andrews too, if I'm not mistaken? Congrats though. Wish I had offers from both those universities... just have to wait and see I guess.

    P.s. Literally just got an offer from Bath! :O

    Ok so im sketching graphs and such and then come across this:

    x^y=y^x
    What does this look like as a graph? Ive tried and have no idea what it would look like... Thanks =]

    Look at each case, what happens at x=0/y=0? Are there any turning points? Have you considered putting it into ln form? Large values/small values?

    Well when I said I'd tried, the first thing I did was 'ln' both sides. Then looked at letting y=0. The only way to make that work is to have x=0 also so thats where it crosses the axis. Next i suppose x=y for every number so it increases linearly. As we increase x, we also increase y.I then differentiated but got lost at the end...
    xlny=ylnx
    lny+y'x/y = y'lnx + y/x
    y'x/y - y'lnx = y/x - lny
    y' (x/y - lnx) = y/x - lny
    y' = (y/x - lny) / (x/y - lnx)
    let y'=0 we end up with y/x=lny ... at this point im lost (ill be honest)

    That was my thought process anyway.
