    Some us unis are charging $58000 a year:eek: . Makes Edinburgh look budget
    The thing is though, only Brits are the most disadvantaged for instance, I know a guy in Princeton who came from Asia and is pretty well off yet when his family's income is converted into dollars, he is technically below the poverty line so got FULL scholarship.

    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.
    Cool, I'm just refreshing C3 and C4 right now, since I need to retake to get the A* but I'm going to hit the STEP papers at the same time.

    True, but feel sorry for the americans: international students are way more likely to get in

    How are you finding revising it? I'm planning to revise a couple of hours a week at the library doing, hopefully, a paper a week until exams. Hopefully gonna start this week as I'm starting school again tomorrow

    wow that is a LOT of money. I would much rather spend it on shopping

    haha just joking but add in the living costs and that is going to be expensive!!

    I know. The fee hikes in the UK look like nothing in comparison
    For some unis, like harvard, though, you won't be paying as much as you do in the UK unless your family earn over £90k per year

    Tot ake this discussion off on a tangent, is anyone applying to US unis??
    I was actually heavily considering it - but this was only 2-3 months ago and I feel like I'm too late on everything - having not taken the SAT :/

    What do you think?

    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.
    Oh same, I was sitting on a school computer pressing refresh But that first talk was already sold out. Actually, I've just remembered that my cousin's living in Coventry at the moment, so I might phone him up. Thanks for the offer though!

    My parents both work at Edinburgh, they were sitting looking at their e-mail last night just saying, "how could they be so stupid?". Apparently the main reason they did it was that they heard a rumour that St. Andrews is planning to do the same. :rolleyes:

    I think there is time, but it might be a bit tight. I am by no means an expert though

    Let's do some step qs. Ok here's the question.
    Which of the following statements are true and which are false? Justify your answers.
    (i) a^ln b = b^ln a for all a, b > 0.
    (ii) cos(sin µ) = sin(cos µ) for all real µ.
    (iii) There exists a polynomial P such that |P(µ) − cos µ|=< 6^10−6 for all real µ.
    (iv) x^4 + 3 + x^−4 > 5 for all x > 0.

    Nice and easy A gentle start

    I'm not sure that this was a good q to choose. It is extremely easy

    Hi there

    I need a little help, still undecided on what course to apply for but I am definitely considering Maths.

    For AS I got AABD in maths, further maths, chemistry and physics. Hoping for A*A*A predictions (after dropping physics and nagging my chemistry teacher).

    what are my chances at UCL maths? I need to stay within London.

    Depends on UMS, if it averages above 90%, go for it. Their average is higher though, bear that in mind.
