    Hi everyone!

    I'm applying for maths at Cambridge and I was wondering how important it is to have participated in maths competitions. I am from Sweden and there are not many competitions so I haven't been able to compete. Does anyone know?

    I'm not an expert, but I'm sure this will be taken into account.:yep:

    As far as I have seen, competitions and things are not very important compared to your Cambridge assessments and interviews and things.:yep:
