    IT IS AMAZING. THAT MAN IS A GENIUS. In some ways I can relate to where he was at his point in life. And he kind of explains it so you understand it...! What a guy.

    Believe it or not, I literally just came to this thread to suggest that. :p:

    From what happened in last year's thread, I'd say it is probably worthwhile. At the very least, it's decent motivation.

    Thank you =D and I am on Edexcel
    Ah, then you do need most of FP3 unfortunately on the bright side there's still six months, give or take a week or two, to prepare. That's plenty

    I've been doing them with varying levels of "me gusta" since September. Really the earlier you can start the better - NRich recommend December, Warwick recommend end of February. If you don't have many exams you need to revise for, go for it otherwise I think it would be best to either do STEP casually until the end of exams (i.e. one question a week?), or just leave it until you have time

    In any case you'll be in a far, far better position than the people who leave it until summer exam revision time...

    Yeah I have been doing STEP I during autumn. I haven't attempted any STEP II yet, but I shall do as you suggest and try and do a question a week (I am worried I will get suckered in and stop revising for economics and just do STEP.)

    Hmm... if you're just starting STEP II "a question a week" might still be a lot during exam time! You could do a 45-minute "question session" instead - just get as far as you can with a question in that time. It's almost like exam conditions so you work better as well

    Could someone point me to the MAT preparation thread (if there is one) or just some good resources to study for the MAT?

    Thanks
