Development opportunities within the Tripos system
Mathematical ability is inherent in some disciplines, and it is important that all students maintain at least a rudimentary comprehension of numeracy.
Activities which demonstrate numeracy could include analysing data using statistical methods.
Extra-curricular development opportunities
- managing personal finances;
- acting as treasurer for a committee or society (this offers an opportunity to become familiar with financial accounts, spreadsheets and databases);
- undertaking numeracy tests which are offered by the Careers Service.
