Current University and current course: University of Warwick MMath Mathematics, will switch to BSc if I get offer
Prospective Course: MASt Pure Mathematics ([probably] primarily Analysis & PDEs, Probability and Analytic Number Theory. Maybe differential geometry)
Prospective Colleges: Wolfson & Christs
Current University Grades: 90.5% first year, 86.9% second year (90s in most relevant modules)
Any research experience/valuable information: Not much research experience per se. Referee/personal tutor is one of the most famous professors at my uni, though in algebraic geometry. Doing an optional third year project next year under fairly notable analytic number theorist on Navier-Stokes. Have contributed to educational projects. Third year options mainly in analysis & PDEs, then a course in manifolds and then set theory.

Application timeline:
- Submitted: 12th November
- PAO (didn't update whenever I went through DC): 9th February
- Offer: 24th February (graduate with a first)

Also applying to OMMS given I can get a third reference, which is pretty hard. Didn't apply.

Didn't realise that was already created, thanks.

Could you add this thread to the OP of the main thread?

The status of my application also changed this morning from "under review by the Department" to "Under review by the degree committee"! I applied to the MASt in Applied mathematics on the 5th of January. Next steps are PAO in approx. 7 days and then receiving an official offer. Congratulations to everyone as well!

Current/previous universities: I did my undergrad at two top universities in Australia, and currently doing honours at another
Prospective Course: MASt in Mathematical Statistics, with a strong focus on probability
Prospective Colleges: Trinity and Emmanuel
Current University Grades: perfect GPA, except for one unrelated non mathematical course in first year, formal recognition of top 5% although I suspect my actual ranking is closer to top 1%
Any research experience/valuable information: summer research in optimisation/functional analysis, currently doing honours research project in stochastic analysis and will likely result in publication, background is a mix of pure mathematics and statistics

Jan 4: submitted
Jan 5: under review by department
Jan 31: awaiting approval by PAO
Feb 3: conditional offer

just checked the portal and saw a conditional offer status, haven’t gotten the email though… very curious to see what kind of condition I’ve been set
Congratulations! This is really impressive, I would even say that you got probably one of the first offers from the programme.

Hey same here! My application also went through to PAO (at least I didn't see it go through the degree committee), hopefully it's not something unusual. I'm also applying for the MASt in Applied Maths, and submitted it late December.

Congrats on everyone who's had a change in their application, hopefully it goes well from here!

Mine hasn't moved at all. Some of my friends received rejections though, and I haven't been rejected either. I sumbitted in November. SHould I expect rejection since so many people's are moving but mine isn't?

no

I'm struggling with the wait too (especially considering someone with my exact second year average from the same university got rejected also from pure maths yesterday), but this doesn't really mean anything. They can only process so many applicants in a day and it's unclear what order they go in if any.

If anything, the fact that a lot of your friends have been rejected but you haven't should feel like a good thing? (bit cold, but they've been rejected and you still might not be)
