    Hi i have a question but first i would like to give you guys a bit of background into my situation. As a singaporean, i will be enlisting in the National Service for 2 years this December and it will be full time. I want to apply to do mathematics in university hopefully at Cambridge/Oxford so i'm stuck in a bit of a dilemma. I do have the slight inclination to want to study at Cambridge as i feel like MAT is not really my thing and i would do better in STEP. That being said, i feel like since i will be in National Service i won't have the time to meet the standard STEP offers given by Cambridge. So i was just wondering, with my results
    Spoiler:
    Show
    4A*s Math, FM, Chem, Phy average 97.7 UMS overall for AS n A2 and grade 1 step 1
    will i still be looking at a very standard 1,1 STEP offer? Does Cambridge always give out a STEP offer? What is the most lenient? Thank you so much for reading this and any help will be appreciated!!

    I suggest you ask your question in the Cambridge forum. In particular, the admissions tutor for Peterhouse is running one there. They have experience of applications from Singapore and how national service is handled.
