Do I need to meet particular criteria to join? 

The virtual State School Study Day for Year 12 is open to pupils at all non-selective state schools and sixth-form colleges in the UK, who are studying Mathematics at A-level (or equivalent). 

Selection is based on academic merit, using GCSE or National 5 performance. Pupils must be predicted to achieve at least AAA at A level or AAAAB/AAAAA in Scottish Highers (or equivalent). Where pupils from the Scottish system can offer Advanced Highers we would expect AA (for two subjects) or AAB (for three subjects). Places are generally limited to two per school/college, although larger establishments may be offered more places. 

Do I have to pay? 

No, this event is free to qualifying pupils. This event is hosted online, so there are no associated travel costs.
