    I can't really talk about it Not until midnight.
    I know that, I wasn't expecting you to. Either way I'm sure you'll have done fine, you're the best non-mathematician mathematician on this forum.

    Indeed. My arithmetic is crap.
    I feel for you... I thought the paper was fine up until a stupid mistake near the end. As we're not really allowed to talk about it yet, let's just say... godammit 5m.

    Do the Natscis have the same system?

    Trinity and Johns :rolleyes:
    I believe it is a unique feature of the maths tripos (although ia physicists who do maths with physics have their physics paper marked on an alpha-beta system)

      Yay - another applicant for physnatsci at Kings - hopefully I'll see you next year (as long as I meet my offer)

      Well done on the offer - an unconditional must be so unstressful (if that's a word)
      I believe we've already encountered one another on the freshers page! (If I am interpreting your initials correctly ) Pretty excited! Need to send off my module choices form within the next 2 weeks as I'm going away, for an incredibly stressful month travelling around Europe. Any idea what accommodation you'll go for?

        I'm sorry, if you want that title you're going to have to take it from Bananarama, preferably in a duel.

          No idea what I'm doing yet
          Wait, am I wrong in thinking that you decided Cam wasn't for you and didn't apply? If I'm right, enquiring about applying next year instead is having doubts in my book!
          Since this is my first time in the system I don't know anyone who tried it but I do know that 'I am Ace' is planning on reapplying for maths next year
          Edit: And LotF got in after spending some time at Durham doing something silly... (but I'm sure you know that already)

            Yeah, that was me. Silly decisions.

            There have definitely been a few success stories on TSR. Not sure if that'll be me or not though

            I believe Farhan is a successful re-applicant.

            Farhan and Ben are the only maths ones I know of on here.

            Trying to revise for my last two exams and there's a bloody band parade happening outside my window! Ahhh Northern Irish problems

            Mind you, I do get to celebrate finishing by going to see the Game of Thrones exhibition in Belfast at the weekend! :yeah:

            Good luck to everyone still doing exams

            Thanks! I have M2 tomorrow and French on Friday - because of the way maths works (as you obviously know), M2 doesn't count for the A* and I only need about a D to get an overall A, and I hate mechanics, so the motivation isn't really there

            (Hence me on the student room the night before)

            Don't you have an unbelievable amount of exams in the next two weeks? Good luck for them all! STEP sounds horrible, but then I thought C4 was hard so I guess it's not really aimed at my demographic

            I have:

            1) S3 - Tomorrow
            2) G495 (Physics module, big 150 UMS one) - Tomorrow
            3) C4 - 18th
            4) M4 - 18th
            5) STEP II - 19th
            6) FP2 - 21st
            7) S4 - 21st
            8) FP3 - 24th
            9) M5 - 24th
            10) STEP I - 25th
            11) STEP III - 26th

            To be honest the amount of exams doesn't hugely bother me (4 are optional :lol: ) but I'll be glad to get them started as I've been in the limbo where everyone else has been doing exams but I haven't yet started. :lol:
