    Definitely - tbh all of them are great engineering schools!

    Thanks a lot dude I'm really shocked because noone except me and someone else from my school had positive news yesterday
    Yeah, I know how you feel - I've got two really talented friends who haven't gotten acceptances anywhere barring their safeties. Admissions were extremely tough this year.

    Same :/ One of mine had full UMS in FM and I read his essays and they were miles better than mine. It really seems unfair! Ah well at least he can go to Berkeley

    One should not complain about getting into Berkeley.

    You seen Princepieman's people from his MIT camp!?

    And very true - Berkeley's awesome and I would say 26th in the World might even be underrated

    Okay, I've been out the entire night and only just managed to clear up all the left over queries on the maths forum, sorry for the late reply!

    MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS, BUD! This is amazing :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin:ing (only doing this bc dolphins lol) news!!! We're all so proud of you. You and Ayman have really outdone yourselves, you little spoodey genius. I'm so happy for you as well. Cornell is bloody brilliant! Have I mentioned how happy I am for you yet? Bloody hell 403, well done! - slightly sad that I'm the only one out of us three who doesn't know where I'll be ending up this Sep though, but nevermind that, so happy for you rn! :party:

    Can't forget yourself Ayman McGill is one of those hoodies you see and you're like "daaamn". And I'm not even exaggerating - when I was watching House MD and Wilson came out like this


    I literally went "awwww yeah :cool:" for the first time xD

    Hahahaha I actually haven't seen that on House

    I actually can't process the fact that I'm going I still feel like I'm stuck in the same old city for a long, long time for some reason. It will hit me after exams, I'm sure of it.

    Dude, I realised how easy your A-level offer has become - it's like a lowish C in A2 Physics + 75 UMS in one FP module! It's just STEP and I know you can do this! I lurk through the STEP thread from time to time to see brilliant minds at work. :ahee:

    I think the icing on the cake is the email address! When do you get yours? I'll pay my enrolment fee iA when my dad's back from his business trip and then I'll get mine :ahee:

    Agreed for us 3 - we live so far away from these top unis in the west and it's gonna be awesome af for all of us!

    Also agree with bolded - I stalk you a lot Zain and you are way more than "on track" for your STEP

    I received my mock results this Thursday and I felt like they were decent. They were taken last month so I've improved much since then, but I've learnt a lot from the mistakes I've made last time. A lot of room for improvement which I can hopefully catch up on in these last few weeks.

    Mocks!
    Maths:
    C34 - 112/125. Forgot to consider parametric volume rather than area, so lost 9 marks rest because my teacher didn't like my presentation.
    S2 - 67/75. Not bad, considering the 2nd highest was around 55! I liked the paper 'cause it was challenging but I mucked up just one hypothesis test by considering \lamda = 4 rather than 8.
    S3 - 60/75. Yeah, I need to start revising this.
    M3 - 62/75. Was apparently 90 UMS on this paper, so can't complain.
    FP2 - 68/75. Messed up an integrating factor.
    FP3 - 75/75. Not bad, but t'was easy.

    Physics:
    Unit 4 - 60/80. A* on this paper, but not satisfied. The questions were awkward, though. Improved, but not good enough, tsk tsk.
    Unit 5 - 67/80. Satisfied with this!
    Unit 6 - 39/40. Didn't expect this at all, but happy with it!

    My physics teacher was satisfied, but he said I really need to focus on past papers now. He was impressed when I told him that I only did two for each module.

    Chemistry:
    Unit 4 - 64/90. Tough paper, can't say where I went wrong because I didn't look through my chem papers.
    Unit 5 - 63/90. Did no revision for this, but this is apparently 2nd or 3rd highest lool
    Unit 6 - 35/50. Can't understand why this went so badly. :confused:

    AAAB overall since my school doesn't offer the A* grade. Need to start revising chemistry now, hahaha.

    Also agree with bolded - I stalk you a lot Zain and you are way more than "on track" for your STEP
    Every time Zain does a STEP mock he'll text me like "Bella I'm failing this is so bad I'm so stupid" then half an hour later, tell me he got 100+. Sometimes I hate him for being so damn clever :lol:

    PS you three should do some joint marriage thing you guys are the cutest!

    Very well thanks! I was the only one in the year to get an A* in FM And A* in M/Ph, B in German lol.

    Blazeit Definitely should! It's quite useful to have all the info in one place
