Taster Days – Autumn Term 2017

These events are for year 11 students who are considering applying to Exeter Mathematics School for September 2018 entry and would like to find out more.  You will have the opportunity to meet EMS staff and students, take part in a series of workshops and have your questions answered. We repeat the Taster Days three times in the Autumn term to ensure that as many students are able to make it as possible.  You therefore only need to attend one session on the day that is most convenient to you.
