If I only apply to Cambridge before 15th October and apply to all my other universities afterwards, does this mean that if I apply to Imperial after I can miss the MAT and if receive an offer have it include a STEP offer instead of just sitting MAT in November?

Would applying after MAT deadline put me at a disadvantage?

To be honest I think these are questions that only Imperial can answer.

With MAT/STEP they’ll be doing either pure Maths or some closely related course.

why would you wait? If you want to avoid the MAT then fair enough but I'm unsure if there's any benefit in waiting. Doubt universities care so much about your personal statement when it comes to maths.

I'd rather have a STEP requirement included in an offer instead of sitting the MAT.

Your personal statement and predicted grades would have to be amazing at least since they don't have any other reason to admit you otherwise since the MAT is where they test for mathematical ability most. Also, in my own experience, the maths department does take the personal statement into consideration a good amount. It's the only way to see if you're a good student to teach and it's what got me my offer for maths there.
