Math III cambridge as a bsc physics

  1. Sep 21, 2015 #1

    I am a Bsc physics w/theoretical physics student at imperial college. I was wondering if anyone knew the chances of getting on the maths III masters course applying from a bsc in physics. Is it even worth applying? My grades are quite high (80% +) but I am worried the courses we have done are not mathematical enough and self study is have to prove.

    I got in with slightly lower grades than yours after a BSc in Physics. I guess it depends on what modules you want to take, if you're looking at the pure maths ones, then maybe you aren't prepared, but if you're looking at their applied maths ones, I'd say a BSc from Imperial should definitely give you great preparation.

    If I were you, I would apply - you'll have a good chance of getting an offer with your grades. If you still feel uncomfortable about your mathematics, just have a look at the Part II courses and see how they compare, you can always do extra reading in the holidays prior to the course.

    Was that from Imperial as well? How did you find the course? I wouldn't take any pure maths just the physics ones. Thanks for your help!
