    I think they make the main batch of offers/rejections in March, but I'll wait until at least April before deciding on my Firm/Insurance. Who knows, STEP might go terribly from here on and I don't firm Cambridge at all, or I might slay it like it's a level 2 Pidgey. We'll see eh

    Do many mathmos have Durham offers on here? I thought it was mainly internationals but I might be behind the times
    I think there's about three or so people on here with Durham offers. I don't know if they are internationals or not. I think the majority (like me) are still waiting to hear from them.

    As far as I know deejay, fGDu and Themagicman have offers. Might be another person, can't remember.

    It's what we need to get in STEP

    (Original post by Xero Xenith)
    They're STEP grades - it goes S (highest), 1, 2, 3, fail. Cambridge normally want a "1" on the two hardest STEP papers - II and III - which is "1,1", but it seems a fair few S,S offers have come out this year

    (Original post by cpdavis)
    Well when you get your grades back for STEP, you can get either and S, 1, 2 or 3 (S highest, 3 lowest pass, below U) where 11 is the standard offer (and S is exceptional) So if you get an SS/S1 offer that's quite harsh, and if you get a 12 offer that can be nice. 11 is usually the standard offer. I needed 11 last year and I got 33 for STEP
    Ahhhh i seee....thanks for clearing that up guys I dont do STEP So.... :/

    So that's four people then! And I believe someone has got a rejection as well.

    Ah well. Can only hope that they'll reply to the rest of us soon, hopefully with good news.

    Condolences to those rejected, I'm sure you will excel elsewhere and good luck to those pooled! And I add my congratulations to all the Cambridge Maths Offer Holders!

    And once we, hopefully, overcome the final hurdle of the conditions, I look forward to the light-hearted banter and rivalry with us, the Oxford mathmos, in the coming years!

    Nah, UCL is really near me and they don't guarantee accomodation unlike Durham who do regardless of insurance/firm. Durham is more like Cambridge I suppose. Can't believe I'm rejecting Warwick and UCL lol...

    Grrrr, I don't know about that.
    I'm really looking forward to doing some theoretical physics but I don't want to compromise on pure maths.
    I wish Cambridge did QM in the 1st year...
    Is your offer for Maths with Physics?
    Technically there's a tiny optional bit, but I agree. It would be nice and seems so cool!!

    (Original post by TheMagicMan)
    I have one
    Congrats! And the same to everyone with a Durham offer already they must really like you guys

    No, not particularly. I don't see how it would help. You have access to all of the papers and, between TSR and the STEP website, pretty much all of the solutions. If you ever get stuck on a question, require a hint or have any STEP related queries, the mathematicians with past STEP experience on here/other sites will probably be able to help you moreso than a single tutor might. The best part is that it won't cost you a penny, either.

    Try STEP on your own. If you have problems, ask on here.

    Is it true you reapplied to Cambridge? *_* I thought you were already at Warwick?

    I need some help! its basically sorting out STEP stuff. I don't really know where to start. I have done a bit of STEP 1 (well quite a bit) but no STEP 2/3. I have finished C1-4 so can do STEP 2 in theory. Now here is the issue, I have only learnt 3/4 of FP2 and none of FP3, we sit the exams in summer. I mean I imagine I will have to teach myself FP2 ahead right? any ideas.

    I would just like to remind people of our lovely Mathematics Applicants 2012 stalking page. Just want to keep it up to date as possible and quite a few people are starting to decide their Firms/Insurance choices so you can start putting them in there too. For a few people I've added some of their details (hope thats okay) as they already hadn't and just for the benefit of everyone so people know what places have been giving out offers etc.
