STEP Support Programme


I am a student from india. I am in year 12. I am preparing for the JEE exam to get a good grip on problem solving techniques and also i have to prepare for 12th boards which are school exams at a national level. So i can't leave any of this but at the same time, my goal is to come to cambridge. At the end of the day, i am always left out with so much study to do and cannot get time to prepare for STEP. And i cannot even leave Jee preps, because if by chance i donot get admitted to cambridge, i might need jee result to get admission in india itself. So please guide me. And what can i do so that my chances of going to cambridge get 100%?

No-one has a 100% chance of getting into Cambridge!

You have quite a bit of time before applying, and the more maths you do before then the better. Working through the questions on this site will help, and also Stephen Siklos' book (which is linked to on this site).

Good luck!
