If this doesn't reduce the number of UK students taken in (It probably won't) then it is an easy way to get another few magic points on the super-cool league tables.

And there is no nobler cause than adding magic points to pointless tables if you are a mathematician.

Ah! That explains the comparatively low number of 1st and 2.1s, right?

Cambridge is actually much harder in terms of entrance requirements due to STEP....

This article is absolutely rubbish, and saying that the entry requirements at Imperial College are the 'highest in UK' is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. As Rupert said, STEP is so much harder than A level that it isn't even comparable, and achieving a 1 in STEP II and 1 in STEP III, or occasionally higher, as required for admission for maths at Cambridge, makes achieving an extra A* at A level almost insignificant.
