Hey,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've applied to do Maths for 2006 entry and have received an offer from one university and two interviews (one from a really good university), however, I am feeling underconfident in terms of my ability.

I've been trying to learn elementary number theory but am having trouble understanding some steps in proofs which is one reason why I'm underconfident.

Also, I've been looking at STEP exam papers and admissions tests for the universities I've applied for and am finding solving these problems difficult.

Any suggestions?

Tom
