The Undergraduate Admission Committee's principal role is to monitor and review the Undergraduate Admissions process in Mathematics.

Terms of Reference

  1. The Winter and Summer Pools;
  2. The arrangments and operation of the STEP (and, if applicable, other admissions tests), and associated STEP-preparation activities;
  3. Entrance requirements (e.g. in the light of changing pre-University preparation);
  4. Faculty and University Open Days, and other Faculty and relevant CAO admissions and widening participation events and other activities;
  5. Faculty admissions literature, both paper and electronic, together with mathematics admissions publications produced centrally (e.g. the mathematics entry in the University prospectus);
  6. Application, entrance and cohort-tracking statistics related to, but not limited to, widening participation, equality and diversity.

The committee is required to:

  • advise, and/or make recommendations to, the Directors of Studies Meeting and/or the Faculty Board.
  • oversee implementation of agreed policy in those areas where the Faculty Board has remit; proposed alterations to arrangements that represent a change in policy should be referred by the Committee to the Faculty Board
  • meet at least once a term and submit to both the Faculty Board and the Director of Studies Meeting the minutes of its meetings and, in the Easter Term, an Annual Report on its activities
