Hi, i want to study computer science or maths at Cambridge university. I noticed that for computer science i need to do a CSAT (Computer Science Admissions Test) and for maths i need to do my STEP exams. Does anyone happen to know if these 2 exams are at all similar. Also how much computer science is in the 'computer science with mathematics' at cambridge.
thanks
charlie

CSAT and STEP are very different. And have very different roles in your application.

CSAT is taken as a pre-interview assesment in November when you apply. i.e. before you get an Offer. Info about CSAT: https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/admissions/...missions-test/

STEP is sat alongside your A-levels as a condition of your Offer. Info about STEP: https://www.maths.cam.ac.uk/undergrad/admissions/step

CompSci with Maths is 50% Maths, but only in the 1st year.
