    Well I have 2 favourites which have different plus/bad points - lancaster and leeds. I have an offer from lancaster but not leeds yet. If i do get one that'll have to be my firm as the offer (if as stated when i applied) will be higher, so lancaster will be my insurance...but i really cant decide between the two......

    Are you?
    Are they both not AAB? i really cant see myself getting that tbh, ABB is more likely so i really am counting on access coming back successful

    what was your offer for lancaster? if you dont mind me asking?

    Well i've not applied for single hones maths. At leeds i did as theres an option to do elective modules in german/year abroad...but at lancaster i applied to german and maths joint hons which i got an offer of ABB for.... Leeds being AAB.
    Im really regretting the course i chose at lancaster now though and if i go there i'm hoping i can switch courses at the beginning on year 1 or the end when you definately say what your course is....

    Yeah my predicted grades are AAB but i think im more likely to get ABB....

    Great! How did you find out about lectures? E.G where are they held, do you have to pay, what time etc...
    Also, what year did you go to it, did you find it hard?

    The Cambridge on was with an organosation called HEAPS and it is sponsored by the educational charity, TeachFirst.. Our school was a part of it, and we joined the programme cause we were aparantly "capable" students..
    The one at Royal Holloway was just advertised on their site, and they emailed our school about it. Everyone was welcome on that one..
    Both were in 2011, Cambridge was in April and Royal Holloway was in November.. Thee one in Cambridge wasn't hard, cause it was pure Maths, I was able to follow as it was just a step further that what i'd already done at school. The one at Royal Holloway was confusing.

    oh okay, I think at most universities you can change when you get there, well all the universities that ive been to open days on you can I suppose it gives you a year to try it out before it actually becomes part of your degree?

    same boat then what subjects are you doing?

    They were lectures at universities but not with other university students. One was on infinity and the other one was roughly around Conway's game of life. Both pretty interesting. Also attended an economics lecture/talk with one of the governors of the bank of england. Now that was interesting, obviously not maths related though.

    I also went on a headstart maths course at Durham university and had like 8 hours of maths a day. I think some other people on here went on that?

    Now you come to think of it I have been on a couple of maths lectures with my school - i should've mentioned them in my PS! They were in year 10 and 11 at york uni which is near my school so we went on a trip with our maths class...
    One i did mention though was a trip to a FERA laboratory i went on in year 12 - a statistics in action visit - where we counted pine cones!!

    Yeah i think you'll be able to change course if theres spare places but you may need the grades (if its higher)...not sure
    Yeah it does give you a year to try it i guess
    I'm doing Maths which i need an A in (and should get), English Language which could be a B or A.....and German which i need a B in and hopefully i'll get and not a C!!!!
