Online Sessions for UCL Mathematics applicants during 2016
A series of 17 live online sessions will be made available to all UCL Mathematics applicants who receive an offer through UCAS. The initial sessions will provide general advice and information about STEP and AEA and cover techniques and approaches across various mathematical topics. The remaining sessions provide a close look at past-paper questions from both STEP and AEA, again by topic areas, and advice about examination technique.
The live sessions start at 18.00 GMT.
All sessions are recorded and will be available for later viewing should you receive an offer only after the series has started, or if you miss a session.
Please refer to the STEP 2016 support booklet here.
We will invite you to contact us about how to receive this support shortly after you receive an offer through UCAS. If you are worried about any delay, please email Kim Duffy (k.duffy AT ucl.ac.uk).
Similar online support was provided to UCL mathematics applicants during 2014 and 2015. Feedback comments included:
|I really enjoyed the online lecture. It was helpful in making the connections between the different areas of maths and how to produce more elegant solutions.|
|Everything was perfectly clear and very informative, thank you.|
It was very good, and a good range of questions.
This is very useful
Great session and really helpful!
Really useful! Thank you very much
Very helpful, thanks!

STEP/AEA Study Days
Two STEP/AEA study days will take place at UCL in addition to the online sessions. They are designed to complement the online support and will be a great opportunity to come to UCL to learn and practice mathematics. The focus will be on gaining experience in answering past paper questions but there will also be teaching sessions on some selected topics.
We will contact you when registration for the study days opens.
The provisional dates for the study days are as follows:
Day 1 (for all holding
a UCL offer): Friday 8th April 2016
Day 2 (for firm choice
only): Thursday 2nd June 2016
