    Probably. Definitely will take it if I get an Oxford rejection (which is quite likely).

    Right, so does anyone know if either Imperial/UCL/Bristol commonly do math interviews? UCAS mentioned UCL may, but then the UCL admissions site said it's not likely. UCAS said nothing about Imperial, and they DO commonly interview applicants. So I'm just really confused. Can anyone clear this up.

    How's UCL coming along?
    Maths - hard and not really that fun.
    Everything else - great.

    How's Kings?

    My tutor for applied is the admissions tutor for the maths department... He mentioned we'll have to rearrange 2 or 3 of our sessions in the coming weeks because they clash with interviews with applicants. That said, I've not met anyone yet who's had an interview here.

    Just got my first Maths offer

    Bath gave me A*AB + either 2 in any STEP or Merit in AEA. Feels good that they're coming in

    Anyone else had any luck?

    Really? I thought they usually didn't? :eek:

    Actually, hadn't heard of any Maths departments wanting interviews except Oxford, Cambridge and one or two in London

    Congratulations! I'm surprised they've started giving out offers already... perhaps you were just too good!

    Meh. No such luck yet But hopefully a longer wait will be worth it!

    Not a lot can be said about it really. Just find the normals and intersect them? Then use the fact that (1,0) lies on PQ for find the value of pq.

    If you haven't already, it'll help to sketch y^2=4xand all the other points/lines to see what's going on.
    Got there eventually, did Q3 no problems. Q4 is have shown it equals 24/25, using triangles, but mine is positive, where as it asks for -24/25 in the paper.

    It's not a proper interview. It's just luring you into walking round the department/campus for 3 hours, having a craic with current students, then getting asked a few questions by a maths member of staff.

    Every applicant gets this interview thing, afaik.

    Easily fixed with a sketch. You'll see that \sin 2\theta \leq 0 for all theta over \dfrac{3\pi}{2}\leq \theta \leq 2\pi. Remember that the triangles will only give you the magnitude (unless you draw them on a quadrant diagram but who does that? :p:) of the value you want, you need to determine the sign of it yourself by looking at the domain.

    Just scrutinized my emails from universities more closely and realised that UCL wanted UMS

    Thought it was just Cambridge! Anyhow, I've sent off the email with the relevant information... Any other UCL applicants getting this?
