    We have to have decided by Monday? Darn... I may have entered for STEP I and perhaps STEP II if I could have done so closer to the exams, since my confidence with STEP papers isn't too high at the moment (haven't done all the work required for any STEP exams yet)...

    STEP I this summer. too early to say anything about it yet, I imagine coming up to exam time every maths lesson will be in preparation for STEP though...

    I dunno if it's a general rule about we need to have decided by monday....but apparently the maths teacher at my college whos in charge of all this STEP and AEA stuff wants to know what we want to do by monday - probably so we can start some preparation for it. I think there's only a few of us doing it though.

    o_O Deadline can not possibly be before January results. My maths teacher already knows I am planning to sit STEP II and III - exams should certainly be fun!

    the monday deadline is for modules that you know you are going to take in june. there's a later deadline (march 13) after the results for modules that youve taken this january and want to retake.

    one way is you get told to do it by cambridge.
    STEP II involves the hardest A level maths concepts (its supposed to anyway). AFAIK STEP is normally intended for candidates in U6th. don't worry about it just yet!

    I'll be entering for STEP II and III. Why? I don't know. Probably something to do with Cambridge being sadists. I asked my maths teacher, who is also the exams officer, to enter me for STEP, and was told it was too early for that, and that entries aren't made until March. It seems that isn't the case.

    Does that go to say STEP III contains less difficult maths conceptually than STEP II? (Even though it tests 'harder' parts of maths).
    I always thought it was STEP I easier, STEP II/III harder
    STEP I/II maths, STEP III f/maths
