    Hi, haven't seen a thread for any Warwick maths offer holders so thought i'd make one, where we can discuss anything about the course or any questions about the university in general


    perhaps introduce yourself with :

    Predicted A2s: A*AA ( Maths , F.maths and business studies)
    STEP/AEA: I'm doing both STEP 1 and 2 , although I seem to be struggling quite a bit and may end up doing AEA as its a lot easier.
    Which Offer Holder day are you going to?
    I'm going to the one on the 15th February.
    Why did you choose Warwick?
    The course structure was quite appealing to me as well as its reputation in maths. Also its Finance and islamic societies are quite active and id be interested in joining them

    None I am International
    Why did you choose Warwick?

    To be honest, it's just for bragging rights 🙈

    Loads of my friends are also taking all three exams. Also STEP III is meant to be on the same level of difficulty as STEP II which I'm pretty decent at. I just need to learn all of FP2 and FP3 first.

    Thats quite ideal, not too close or to far from home. My parents are still against me staying so far from home, but I'm kind of looking forward to it. Are you commuting or staying in university accommodation then?

    haha, I admire your determination. I'm the only one at my school even sitting step.
    I thought STEP III was a lot harder than II due to all the further maths content.

    I'm the only one in my school doing further maths, let alone sitting STEP!

    I've heard that some people think STEP III is actually easier than II

    Staying in halls. Even if I went to the uni that's like 5 mins away from me I'd still go into halls for the experience

    haha, didn't expect that, we have about 13 doing F.maths.

    Ive always been told I was the easiest (in comparison) then II slightly harder and III a lot harder , Might have a look at couple of step III papers if thats the case.

    STEP III certainly covers more content but the questions are designed to be on the level of STEP II. I think the only thing which will make it harder is the fact that I'll only be able to answer the pure maths questions since I'll have only done applied maths up to M2 and S2 (also D2 but that doesn't matter here).

    Have you guys started looking at accommodation yet? Cryfield looks tempting since my maintenance loan will probably be around £3400. Only thing is that it appears to be the furthest from the maths building

    well I suppose if you concentrate more on the pure you'll hopefully pick up quite a few more marks there, but i suppose that would be a problem. I usually get at least 2 questions from the applied, but Ive done M3 as well though . Thanks for clarifying that , might end up sitting STEP III now too.
