Math exchange student in Cambridge

  1. Feb 2, 2009 #1
    I've recently found out that my university has an exchange program set up with the U of Cambridge. I am interested in pursuing math in graduate school. I've finished the standard lower-level coursework in math (Cal I-III, Diff eq, and Linear Algebra), plus Analysis I (analysis on the real line) last semester. This semester I'm taking an Abstract Algebra course that goes through Sylow's theorems, with some ring and field theory (if time permits!).

    Now I don't exactly know how I compare with my Cambridge counterparts for their system is VERY different (and, forgive me, a little confusing!) from what US colleges have. I was wondering how I'd be able to select my coursework and how I'd be assigned grades for the courses.

    Pointers would be appreciated!
