    No car unfortunately

    I applied to Grey. Not sure what it was about it, just really liked the atmosphere and had a great tour guide. Also liked that it is one of the larger colleges, but not massive like St Hild

    that's a shame.

    Ah nice! I stayed in Grey at Easter and it was alright, but not for me I've gone for Mildert, was tempted by Butler but I just feel like you don't get the same community feel in there with it all being in flats :dontknow: Have still yet to apply though!

    It was tough! Spent too long on the induction question and didn't have time to finish.

    Ah yes, I saw that it linked to the STEP Prep Thread 2017 instead of 2018, which is why I was confused.

    Yeah with AQA we don't need to learn proof by induction (though I did anyway...)

    WHAT? I did Edexcel and proof by induction was the bane of my life... luckily I nailed it the day before my exam though! They put some C2 geometric series stuff in our exam, and it just literally didn't cross my mind as I didn't think I'd see C2 in FP1 so I didn't spot it (stupid mistake really) so all of the 5 marks I lost were on that bloody question :facepalm:
