    Only 200 and something people in Scotland take AH Applied Maths. Out of which I think >50 take AH Stats. Not a very popular course. Only three people in my school do it! Quite a lot more people take mechanics.
    Didn't realise it was quite that low a number! Although I suppose people look horrified enough when I tell them I'm doing AH maths, never mind doing applied maths as well :P

    Can any of you keen Maths people recommend some good Maths books for me to read?
    Im getting Fermat's last theoreom. I dont want it too complex however. Thank you
    Fermat's Last Theorem is great, it's such a compelling story. I've been revising it because I put it on my personal statement :P some others: Taming the Infinite; A Very Short Introduction to Mathematics; Finding Moonshine; etc.

    If you like the style of Simon Singh then anything by Marcus Du Sautoy is good. If you want something a bit more "mathsy" but not too difficult have a look at Martin Liebeck's "A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics". Currently part way through and it's pretty damn good.

    anyone had their interview at downing? test - stupid. first interview - nice. second itnerview - stupid. I honeslt y dont know. it was quite enjoyable at points, but other bits just made me nearly cry. the waiting room for the period between the test (9.00) and my first interview (4.00) was a fun place.... Purgatory describes it quite well.

    This one is pretty complex, well I found it quiet demanding. 'The Divine Proportion: A study in mathematical beauty' by H.E. Huntley. The intro is pretty deep. I think it's a very good book for someone who is thinking of reading Maths and/with Philosophy. I found it pretty good but it's hard to take in more than like 5 pages at a time.

    Anyone yet to have an interview? What's everyone doing to prepare? All I've done to prepare is run through a few STEP papers but I haven't had a mock interview or anything :/

    I think I'm the only Maths applicant at my school to not have had their interview yet so I'm getting ever more nervous. I had a short mock interview and I've looked at some questions. But yes, oh so anxious.

    yh...they had to be hard.....my advice is that listen carefully to their prompts and advance in the question and speak about the problem :eek: dw if you dont get a solution....just make sure w.e. your doing....its clear to you and the interviewers. most importantly....HAVE FUN!

    Likewise, I haven't had a mock interview nor am I going to have one haha! I'm ridiculously anxious! I guess you're staying at Emmanuel the night before? And Friday is creeping up far too soon, I feel far too underprepared
