Hi!

I thought I'd create a thread for 2022 mathematics (and joint subjects) applicants because I can't find one. This is just a chat for all things maths application related. Maybe introduce yourself and say where you are applying if you want.

I've applied for maths and comp sci / AI at Oxford, Manchester, York, Leicester and Birmingham and I do A level maths, further maths, computer science and music.

It is nearly admissions test time for those of us doing MAT and TMUA so how are you finding preparation?

Maths and further maths are basically just 1.5 a levels and mechanics overlaps in maths and physics so its not as much work as 4 completely different a levels. What are your gcses and predicted?

Yay, a maths thread!
I'm applying for MSci Mathematics at Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, Imperial and Oxford (Jesus College), although I'm starting to doubt myself over the last two.
I think I'm pretty prepared for the MAT and have also been completing the old STEP 1 papers and AEA, which seem okay too, just in case Imperial requests STEP as part of a conditional offer.

I received advice from an Oxford alumni who now works at my school and it seemed like a decent college. I don't particularly care for the collegiate system so it made no difference to me really.

It's harder than A level maths just not FM. Just doesn't cover as much content and ur gonna have to do a lot more work to prepare for STEP.

One would argue that it may also be harder than FM. Probably not the stuff in STEP though
