    Yes. If I was still at Imperial I would love to give the admissions tutor a good kick up the...

    yh Trinity is my first priority

    but I dont want to get carried away and not think about an insurance....I would prefer Imperial as they do give offers without STEP...but the amount of time they are taking is really annoying :mad2:

    All offers are in and now trying to decide on who to pick for insurance. Firm is going to be Warwick with the standard scary thing, choices for insurances are:

    Lancaster (AB), Queen's Belfast (AB/BBa), Bath (AA) and Exeter (AB).

    Any and all suggestions gratefully received. Should make AA in F Maths and Physics so any of them should make viable insurances.

    Exeter seems to have the smallest choice in modules in the first couple of years but some really different ones for 3/4th years, Lancaster seems to have the best flexibility, Bath is the best 'thought of' and Queen's is the cheapest (NI student so fees are only £3k ish)

    I would choose lancaster, purely because i've applied there and know what its like!!
    I think its a great uni and to say its in the top 10 the offers are low.

    At a recent Imperial maths open day they said that if you are taking a STEP exam then they might make it part of your offer.

    I didn't put down I will be doing STEP in my UCAS....there are plenty offers holders without STEP and I'm hoping to be one of them....as my insurance decision will be one predicament!

    Good decision, they're fairly similar but I think firming a higher offer will make sure you don't get complacent.

    Yhupp, already firmed an insured. STEP isn't impossible like I used to think, alot of practice and dedication is needed though. I still struggle with it but I don't put enough hours in atm either. :/

    Hang in there - it will reap dividends for you at university (not because any of the stuff comes up much, but getting used to problem solving is never a bad thing)

    I'm really finding it difficult to decide on which university to put as my firm. It's between Edinburgh and St Andrews.
    Am I basically deciding between living in a city and living in a town, because they're both great academically. :confused:

    Well, I wish I'd got into St. Andrews, but sadly they rejected me. I need somewhere secluded where I can be alone for 3 years! Depends on which you like then I suppose, only you know that.

    In your position I'd choose Sheffield for insurance; it's very similar to Leeds as a university. In terms of which one's better for maths though, I imagine Sheffield and Lancaster are pretty much the same.
