    Ops sorry, all the best in everything you do then. Are you practicing STEP now?
    Yhupp, just browsing through Stephen Siklos booklet. I'm more concerned with raping C3 and C4 in Jan and my retakes. *_* Bur thankfully STEP is more of a try and let your mind think about it approach lol.

    :hello: I'm booked and going! And I'll be by myself (and staying the night of the 23rd by myself) because all my friends are either applying only in Scotland or just aren't interested in Warwick. My sessions are:
    10.00 - 10.30 Welcome to Warwick - Ramphal Building (Zeeman building was booked out at 10.28am :eek:)
    10.45 - 11.45 Mathematics at Warwick - Zeeman Building
    13.45 - 14:15 Mathematics: Beautiful and Useful - Zeeman Building

    Will anyone else be completely by themselves? Perhaps we could team up?
    I booked it all within the hour. I have them all in Zeeman building hehe. I'm going with a friend but you can team up with us if you like, it's never nice being on your own.

    yeah STEP is like one level further than ordinary A-Levels Maths. Which STEP are you practicing on? I noticed that you are doing Further Maths at A2 Level, so do I. So we should do STEP 2 and 3 instead of 1 and 2.

    probably won't bother with all that tbh

    I just know I'd fall asleep. It's happened every time I've been to an open day and sat in a lecture hall. (3 times - at Oxford, Cambridge and Manchester. Not because they were boring, but because I had to get up early to get there) I only wanna look at the campus anyway

    I've already completed A-Level Maths C1-C4 S1 M1, so right now I focusing on STEP I but I'll start STEP II and III soon depending on the modules I can cover.

    EDIT: PM me your MSN and we can discuss further. If you don't have a MSN just PM me lol. :P

    ...my thinking is I'm working towards getting a ferrari, why would I spend £200k on education when I can use that money and immediately get said ferrari. Doesn't make sense. :mad: I would love to go to Harvard or MIT though.

    Which unis are you considering? Have you sat the SATs I/II yet?
    Would Cam still be your first choice?

    (Not that I will be applying definately, but have been encouraged by uncle in US to apply; so might do if things don't go too well with UCAS).

    I was considering HYP and Stanford. I've done my SATs and yes Cambridge would still be my first choice

    It's nice to have the option though. And there's no offer to make so if I miss step I can always go wherever I get in in the US.

    Fairly sure I'm applying to Cambridge, Warwick and Durham but need two more choices. Anyone know much about St Andrews/Edinburgh/Newcastle/York?
    I don't know much about them but from next year Edinburgh is going to be the most expensive uni to go to because the courses are 4 years long and they are charging £9000 a year fees. It was on the BBC website

    Oh I see. Sure thing! I haven't started practice on any STEP yet but would probably start it in these few days time. Heard that STEP 2 is even harder than STEP 3.

    Ah but practice makes perfect. The more you do the easier it'll get. For example BMO2 functional equations were :confused: a year ago but now they're like

    Can you take me through it? If worst comes to worst I may get my parents to claim bankruptcy and fund me. Also, on a more serious note, is it cash up front or similar system to the UK?
