Imperial or Warwick but do not know which one. I hear Warwick is better but I prefer Imperial's location. Bristol as a backup option. I would apply to York but it's too far. I will apply to Queens' College, Cambridge too but I think my personal statement would be too weak for an interview.

I’ve been to open days at Cambridge and they said they don’t take much notice on Personal Statement for Maths because it’s basically the same 4000 characters for everyone. They interview 90% of all UK applicants

For people applying to Oxford/Imperial/Warwick, can someone start the MAT prep thread similar to previous years?

The LSE maths course is not a standard maths course.

It is much more an applied maths course, teaching you areas of maths that are useful for the social sciences like economics/business, etc.

So essentially the question you should ask yourself before applying to LSE is whether you want to do maths for the sake of it? Or do you want to study maths that is useful to a specific social science like economics?

I’m thinking of applying to Warwick, it says they lower the entry grades if you take STEP, but they also consider MAT, so which one would be preferred?

You should take the MAT.

That is what they use primarily to give out offers. In very exceptional circumstances will they accept a candidate who has not done the MAT
