Coronavirus updates box

24 March - We have today received confirmation from the Maths Faculty that this event is cancelled and will be emailing all students who booked a place on the Christ's morning event later today.

17 March - The Maths Faculty says that at this moment in time the maths open day on 25 April is still due to go ahead, but the situation is, of course, fluid, and the priority will be at all times the safety and well-being of any potential visitors as well as our staff and students. Should the Maths faculty cancel this event, everyone who has booked a place will receive an email and we will also update this box.


Important to note when choosing school subjects: 

To apply for Maths at Cambridge University, you should study Mathematics at the most advanced level available in your curriculum. 

If you are taking (UK-designed) A levels, you must take at least 3 A-levels including both Mathematics and Further Mathematics in order to meet the subject requirements. If your school does not offer Further Mathematics, you may be able to get support via the Advanced Maths Support Programme, which provides free online films and other resources to help you prepare for A level Further Maths. If you are studying independently, Integral offers an online Further Mathematics course.

If you are studying in the Scottish education system, do read the notes for scottish applicants

If you are doing the International Baccalaureate Diploma, you must be taking Analysis and Approaches at Higher Level.

Offers for Mathematics at Cambridge include STEP exams, which you take at your school or College, normally at the same time as your A levels, IB or equivalent. The University provides a free online STEP Support Programme.

For your other subject options, please see our maths page.

"Having a chat with current students about life at Christ's was really good, as they provided a perspective which you don't really get when reading information on the website and the prospectus."

"We were fortunate to have James as our tour guide - spontaneous, frank, amusing and most informative- he was a breath of fresh air and gave us a good idea of what it would be like to be a student resident at Christ's College - every student's dream!"
