Friday meetings

If you are considering Oxford, Cambridge or one of the other highly selective universities Year 12 is the time to build up your academic ‘super-curricular’ activities.

For students considering applying for Maths at universities which require STEP the University of Cambridge has now produced some online resources to help with STEP preparation, plus a correspondence course.  Details can be found here: http://maths.org/step/

The University of Cambridge has put together a whole website of ideas related to different subject areas: http://www.myheplus.com/.  This has been put together by Cambridge postgraduate students and academics at the cutting edge of research in their field. The topics provide guided activities, questions to think about and suggestions for further reading.

The Computer Science Department at the University of Oxford suggests some useful reading www.cs.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/why_oxford/background_reading.html
