I'm applying to Cambridge for maths. But I'm not sure what to write in the additional statement. Could anyone give an example what you wrote? Thanks

If you're not sure about it, chances are there's no point in you writing anything!

The SAQ is mainly for other activities etc. relating to your chosen course that you weren't able to fit into your normal personal statement. Alternatively you can write about something specific about the Cambridge course, what attracted you to it etc. (especially in the cases of more unique courses like Land Economy which you may not have tailored your UCAS PS for).

I don't know anything about Cambridge Maths, but unless there /is/ something unique about the degree there, or there's an award or smth you achieved and wanted to talk about etc there's probably not much point filling it in. I got an interview and didn't write a word, so it's defo not looked down upon if you don't
