Hey there.. I'm a prospective JMC student in year 13. I've applied for JMC and will hopefully get a reply in due time. I was just wondering whether or not I'll have to sit the STEP exam (if I get an offer). On the website it says "Typical offers include STEP requirements." but not much more. I'm applying to Oxford for the joint course and hopefully make it in there but if not Imperial is my next preference. Does everyone get a STEP requirement or only a few people?

If it's relevant: I got all (11) 9s at GCSE and I am predicted A*A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry.

If you google there have been freedom of information requests made on the subject of STEP offers. Most often they asked for STEP I when they required STEP, but STEP I is going to be discontinued from 2021 onwards so... who knows!

PRSOM but thanks! I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

I wasn’t even aware they included STEP with offers, they already have their own online entrance exam so I thought that was enough. Don’t really want to do STEP…

The online entrance exam is more of a basic skills aptitude test I believe. I’m just worried that due to the removal of STEP I they might make us do STEP II and/or III which will take a considerable amount of preparation.

Yeah I don’t want to spend months and months preparing for the STEP exam, especially when Imperial are the only uni I’m applying to which could require it. What sorts of grades do they usually want in STEP do you know?

My son read JMC at Imperial, but applied with US qualifications. They didn't require STEP for him.

You could ask their tutor for admissions, but they will be very busy, so I'd just wait. If you are interviewed, I'd raise it then, and tell them that you took the MAT. Good luck for both Oxford and Imperial.

Yeah that makes sense.. I know that not all applicants are asked for it. Thanks
