Read on to find out more about my experience in the first term of Maths at Bristol, 2014!
During the past week, I attended an Easter school set by Cambridge university for maths applicants from not-so well off backgrounds (like my own, apparently), ostensibly in order to help them with preparation for STEP exams this summer, but (in my case at least) mainly to have fun doing maths and talking to current undergraduate students there.

Well, none of those statements are quite true - except, perhaps, for the third, heh. The point is, I've neglected the site for over half a year and have only now got round to carrying out two jobs that desperately needed doing: firstly, revamping and updating the site to Drupal 7 - yes, the new look is more than just a theme - second, of course, to update the blog with this post.
