    True but if all goes to plan (if I apply to Oxford as well) I'll have Oxford as my firm and LSE as my insurance.
    Likewise haha, although I strongly doubt it will...

    I don't see why it is unreasonable for someone applying for maths at university should like doing challenging problems.

    Naa I'm just kidding really. I agree to an extent.

    I enjoy practising and I'll probably enjoy actually doing STEP, but I'm certainly not going to enjoy relying on it to meet my offer. Then again I doubt anyone will!

    If your going to apply to Warwick, Imperial or Bath then you might have to do STEP anyway. Just something to think about
    If I get an offer from Oxford, I won't be doing STEP because I'm not applying to Warwick or Bath and Imperial have a higher offer anyway so it's only there so I can firm it if I get rejected from Oxbridge

    I'm still gonna bash STEP in maths lessons though, it's good stuff

    That's cause you're lurking around Maths + Cambridge forums. It's what I do haha.

    Yeah I spent like 2 hours trying to figure a question out before. I have managed to get 1 full question done (albeit on the only paper I actually sat down and tried) on STEP II which was a tetrahedron question with lots of angles, pythag, trig etc. One of the best moments in my life

    With rise in tuition fees, obviously the 'mickey mouse' degrees will take a hit with applicants. But do we think that people at the other end will re consider ? I'm doubting it tbh.

    I don't think too many people are put off. Most people either are really passionate about university, or they still don't know what else to do!

    I'd have to agree, the hardcore pro degrees (sciences and maths) will hardly take a hit, maybe only from the very poorest of candidates, or some will look abroad.

    I'm also self teaching myself C3/4 this summer This is getting weird now..

    Ah I see I'm not going to bother I don't think. I'm just going to do STEP I until I've just about mastered it and go up to 2 nearing the end of this year (assuming I don't get rejected before interview haha).

    Basically, most of the top unis require Further. Most below that do not require Further.

    So these all require Further (AS or A-level):

    Cambridge
    Oxford
    Imperial College London
    Warwick
    Bath
    Durham
    Bristol
    University College London
    King's College London

    Most of the rest would appreciate at least AS Further, but they don't require it. Interestingly there are many good universities (LSE, St Andrews, Nottingham) that don't require Further, while some which are not so highly regarded (Loughborough) do require Further, according to a spreadsheet I made for myself

    Here's the spreadsheet if anyone wants to check it out:

    https://spreadsheets.google.com/spre...thkey=CJLIpvoC

    Note that I've just included what I consider correct for myself. So if a uni says "we want A* maths, or A in maths and B in Further", I jumped for the second option and disregarded the first, because I do Further!

    Here's the accompanying map:

    Just throwing them at random passers-by in the hope one gives me a hug

    Wow!! You are dedicated!!! Ive made a ppt but this spreadsheet is great! So, if the uni doesnt specify further maths is it worth doing an AS in it? Would it make any difference/would they care if i've done it??
