And where did you come to?

So I went to Girton College Cambridge. I think they, I came early because they were running a summer school for people who were doing engineering and sciences because they said they had worked out that the maths teaching was very variable, and so they offered a, must have been, wasn't very long maybe two or three week summer school where they'd bring you up to speed on maths. Or bring you up to the same level, really. So I came for that and there wasn't, it was a bit expensive to travel, so I stayed on and started university in October.
