    I Had a choice between Bristol and Exeter, both require AAB but Exeter just looks like an amazing place to live albeit maybe not as good as Bristol for mathematics. To be honest I would only pick Oxford or Cambridge over Exeter judging by the open days.

    I'm doing FP2 and FP3 this year along with S3 for further maths and I shall be doing C3, C4 and D1 for normal maths. I know I'll probably get A*A or AA for double maths, it's just my third subject, politics, which I'll probably get a B in.
    EDIT: Oh and I have an AAB offer you?

    It's got more of an applied approach to mathematics and I'm more of a pure kinda guy and although they offered that at Bristol, I think I'd be happier at Exeter

    Not many people have seen pure maths before they go to University, so I will take your word for it.

    All the best!

    What do you think F(urther)p(ure)2/3 are? Applied modules Also did a bit of number theory on my own, actually wrote about it in my personal statement

    They are 'method' modules

    Pure maths is stuff like graph theory, combinatorics, (maybe differential geometry?), topology, group theory, number theory, knot theory, chaos theory...

    Calculus, vectors and complex numbers are used all the time in Mathematical Physics

    ... more applied than pure.
    Their correct classification withing the grand scheme of Maths is "methods".
    Definitely not a shred of pure maths in them.

    I am going to wish well again, wherever you go, and maybe we will revisit this thread after you start University next year

    all the best.
