    6 in Math? You might struggle with math here unless you work hard.

    You only need a 6 in HL Maths to get in, what would be the problem?

    That is true, but Warwick math is generally seen as only being second to Cambridge math. So while you might get in, you could still struggle because most of Math from high school is assumed knowledge (I did A levels, but I've gone over the IB syllabus and I would definitely suggest that you need a 7).

    Also, remember that you need to get the STEP part of your offer. So while you might get a 6, if you cannot get a 7, then you will have to work even harder to get the required grade for STEP.

    I think it's irrelevant, to an extent to what you feel, if you don't mind me saying The Warwick admission staff will know what is required for their course ^^ They've set a horribly hard offer for A levels (justly) they won't have made it any easier for IB applicants.

    I study at Warwick, so I think I'm qualified to give my opinion :P

    I'm not saying you won't manage, I'm saying you might find it difficult. If you're content with a non-first degree, then sure, go ahead. I'm saying that you'll find it easier with a 7. Also, you might find it difficult to meet the STEP part of the offer.

    Well I got my offer of 6,6,6 HL with 39 overall and 2 in step or 37 overall with 1 in step
    I'm not afraid of hard work which is why I applied to Warwick in the first place, and I obviously aim to get a 7 that's just what I was predicted at the time.

    I applied for the 4-year straight maths course. I finished my A-levels last year with A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and an A in Chemistry (as well as grade 5 in AP Calculus back in 2010). Now I just have to deal with STEP!

    I'm doing MMORSE which is mainly maths.

    Last year I got A* maths, A in history and politics and a B in economics.

    This year I'm predicted straight A* in further maths, politics and economics. I think I'm more likely to get 2A* 2As but may be a B in economics (just did **** in the exam).

    Can't wait to be at Warwick!!!

    I'm doing the four year straight maths course, hopefully with a few physics modules along the way How is everyone feeling about STEP/AEA? Just found out they decided to timetable STEP 1 and AEA at the same time for some reason...

    Stupid idea.

    A few years ago STEP 1 and 3 were on at the same time because you wouldn't do both (but you could in separate years).

    Well I'm going to enter for both, so will have to sit one in isolation Considering other universities as well (e.g. UCL) include both AEA and STEP in their maths offers, it seems like pretty bad organisation between exam boards

    I'm taking STEP I and AEA, but do you think it's worth considering taking STEP II, or am I very unlikely to do better in STEP II than STEP I or AEA? Also, when can we be entered for these exams and how much does AEA cost?
