    Is this a thing? You can reapply while at uni?
    Technically you can. Just cancelled my student finance.

    imperial full of Warwick rejects, and Warwick full of Cambridge rejects, I assume you attend Warwick?
    Ah fair enough. Though I am still confused as to Imperial being full of Warwick rejects, as I don't see why that would happen. I guess if they got through MAT but not STEP..
    Yes, and I am a Cambridge reject lol

    Went to Warwick undergrad and then Cambridge postgrad. Left after 12 weeks to go back to Warwick. Preferred the less restrictive environment of Warwick and not feeling like I'm living on the set of Harry Potter. So each to their own.

    Did a few past papers, before I even started STEP. It seemed fairly easy.

    Fair enough. Though I'd wager Warwick probably has as many if not more tossers as Cambridge minus the academic rigour.

    STEP is a joke. Just pick the Stats questions they're piss easy.

    STEP is less restrictive, and difficulty doesn't really increase, hence easier exam.

    What..first you were saying Imperial is full of Warwick rejects and now you are talking about Warwick being full of rejects, if I understand correctly..
    Any chance of an insight into what maths at warwick is like?

    Being able to choose which questions to do doesn't immediately take the exam down to A-level standard. Sure it makes it a little easier, but not to that degree.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "difficulty doesn't really increase".

    Don't know about that: my PhD supervisor recently won a Fields Medal. How many Cambridge academics got one in the last ten years?

    To be honest socially I would find little to recommend one over the other except Warwick probably has a greater share of down to earth students. As for the relative proportion of tossers: I wasn't counting.

    Around the same level of difficulty as MAT, but less restrictive.
