Sjn28 is Simon Nickerson, a postgraduate student of mathematics at Cambridge University, England. I have contributed to a few articles on maths, music, C.S.Lewis and Harry Potter (!).

Hi Sjn28. I have two friends trying to get into maths at Cambridge (I am trying to get in to Cambridge on medicine) - any advice on interviews etc...? -- sodium

Well, I guess it's too late now, as I think all the interviews are over for this year. The only advice I would give to someone coming up for a maths interview is to read thoughtfully a book on maths (e.g. "What is Mathematics?" by Courant, Robbins and Stewart). Then think some more. Hope your interview went well, and that the result is what you want. Sjn28
