I have that offer too, A in Maths, Further Maths, Physics. In the interview, they debated in front of me Physics v. Chemsitry, so I don't think that's as important, so I won't slack too much in Chemistry.

I'll see if I can get almost full marks in General Studies without going to a single lesson again, and not doing any preperation :-)

physics may help you with the hardware course in the first year.

Definitely Imperial. JMC is a great course, but hard work (I'm here now). I have friends at Warwick who are not too keen, mainly because they don't like Coventry. But who couldn't like London?

Also, Imperial has a better reputation than Warwick so it would look better to future employers IMO.

Hi guys long time I haven't posted here.
I got a conditionnal offer for Computer Science( European programme of study ).
Since a live in France, therefore i am sitting for the french baccalaureate this year, they want me to get:
"BIEN OVERALL" and "BIEN IN MATHEMATICS".

I think "BIEN" starts at 14 / 20 isn't it?

Yeah, Ill go for Imperial pretty sure.
But not sure about JMC yet.
Might change it to a full maths degree when I (most probably)
come to Imperial this Autumn..

Just that dont know if I wanna go do programming at university.
Im not bad at it, Ive actually done Java, C, Perl, Php
and what not for quite some time.

But Im more interested in Mathematical research
for example in pure maths and radar technology..
Think Ill go for a MSc or MRes in Maths after 3 year Math degree from IC.

i'd suggest you do JMC at first. if you really dont like it, you can easily transfer to either Maths or Computing.

Do you know when do I have to make the final decision
when choosing between full maths or joint computers?

Hmm... the earlier you make the decision the better, but it's possible right up until the end of the first year to go from JMC -> Computing (it means a lot of hassle and catch-up work over the summer though if you leave it this late). JMC -> Maths I think is generally a harder transition for many reasons and I don't think you could leave such a transition that late.

You really want to have made a final decision by the christmas holidays IMO, however most people make their mind up within the first week or two after having sampled the course and been told what is expected of you.

Ill have to see, good that I have the whole of summer to think about it.
Should have made my mind by the time I get there..
Last thing what I wanna do is start messing around with the courses
and get loads of catch up work to do!

I realise university is a lot of hard work.
And well Im fine with it, actually Im looking forward to it..
But just thought Id ask you how hard to do you feel is it to get a first
class degree out of imperial. I take that if you just work hard and work
consistently you should be able to get it?

Yeah, and about warwick. I actually just talked with a maths teacher
teacher from England. She said that Warwick would definately
be best for maths from the list of IC, warwick, notts, ucl
and almost comparable to Cambridge. But would obviously
not be reputation wise. I get the feel that Imperial has the edge tho.
But teaching and the maths course in general should be pretty good at wrwick

For straight maths, go to Warwick. For compsci/maths and compsci, go to IC.

From what I've understood Warwick should have a better
social scene and has much more like a campus feel to it.
IC is somewhat scattered, at least the student halls, around the center
of London. And it has a geeky reputation social wise.
And what I heard about Warwick is that espcially Goventry and
any other cities around the university area aren't that great at all!

But many of my friends from England say that I should definately
go to London. There's so much things to do and London for sure is good
for partying (at least outside the uni), would be nice to go hardcore clubbing
in London every once in a while (of course I could do this from Warwick
also and just crash in at some of my friends' places in London!)..

chandoug, are you gona go for maths at imperial?
