I plan on doing STEP and read online that you can either do STEP I and II or II and III. It is recommended to do the latter option of you are studying further maths. It also says that STEP I is considered to be the easier paper and that II and III are of equal difficulty. What is the disadvantage to doing STEP I if you do further maths?Because it makes more sense to just do an easier paper if possible.

Thanks,
Luke

Warwick wants a grade 1 in any STEP paper (there are ways around this though, e.g. reduced offer or getting 3A* for their normal offer), Cambridge will tell you which papers you need to do so you don't get to decide.

They changed the rules (and the timetable - STEP I and III used to be timetabled at the same time) about 5 years ago and you can do all 3 if you want.

Yep, the standard Cambridge offer is a grade 1 in STEP II and III. They don't care about your grade in STEP I. Warwick requires grade I in any STEP.

Echoing the above posts, Warwick for the most part like a 1 in any STEP, however whilst Cambridge typically have listed STEP II and III with a 1 in their offers, you cannot for sure make that assumption, as the offer will be a little different for everyone and they will specifically state the grades needed and which STEP to sit. You do have the option to sit all 3 if you so please.
