    Yay! Fellow Trinity reject! Congrats on all your other offers though. I'm still waiting to hear from Durham, I guess you're an international student?

    Before everyone negs me, I will point out I expect to be rejected =p. Anyway, I've been thinking about my interview. It almost seemed 'too easy', after showing my teachers they agree that my questions were ALL relatively simple. Heck, one of my questions was doable by my friend who failed GCSE maths...

    Why would someone do a 4 year Maths degree?
    Because they like maths? There's nothing wrong with wanting a Masters degree.

    They love maths that much, research, PhD, blah blah. I've only applied to 4 year courses where I get a year in Europe

    So who's at Oxford tomorrow?

    Questions can always seem deceptively simple. Are you sure you can confirm the answers with teachers? Regardless if you get them right or wrong, it's how you thought your way through the problem that they're more interested in

    Well, I'd bear in mind that you have very limited time in an interview situation - you want to get through 2 or 3 questions in 30-40 minutes, so STEP-level stuff is out of the question. Perhaps they seemed simple to you because you did well, and others would have found the same questions hard...? I don't know, since obviously you can't tell me the questions or anything.

    Anyone else at St. John's this week? What is everyone doing with regards to the massive amount of free time we seem to have.. I guess revision and that is key, but I can't imagine myself spending all the time that isn't an interview reading books and thinking maths ^_^

    I have an offer from Bath but they do seem to be taking their time (I got my offer probably a month after someone who sent their application at the time as me).

    I had my interview at Caius last week and everyone just hung in the JCR between interviews, chatting and generally making the most of speaking to like minded people: There was the odd few reading interview related stuff but it seemed relaxing was the best way to do it.
