I see!! Good luck you'll definitely make it mate - your work ethic truly is impressive, and you have inspired me to take a real rigorous question based approach to my studies which I have never done before. As my Physics teacher said to me (he went to UCL), the acceptance of ignorance is the beginning of knowledge or something like that haha .
Never knew you had to be so rigorous with your mistakes. Am surprised making mistakes is so important.
You will do great.
So do you recommend I actually print out the C3/C4 papers, and not write on Paper. For Solomon Press I have no choice, but when I start doing real papers do you recommend I actually write inside Answer Booklets rather than just on Paper?
You are a God among mere mortals, and you have really inspired me, super impressed with that work rate. Keep it up mate, which Uni do you intend on going to then?
Congrats on Physics, I would assume you have an A* in it and core Maths if you're only doing Further maths modules, you basically have what I need in August now....
How many past papers are you doing daily then? How did you find the time to finish all the past papers!!!??!!!
Just a quick question - how long do you think it should take me to go through all the Booklets you put up for Phys 4 and 5, or rather do you think it's possible to finish them all in 7 Days.
I think there are 22 altogether?
My e-mail must not have gone through, yes I received them thanks so much! And I've been going through those Question Sheets you put up, my teacher told me to stop rushing through them and instead do 3 questions, mark them, then maybe 5 mark them, then maybe 7 or so, reducing the rate of mistakes.
Thanks again so much! Hopefully I can get the grades for UCL!!
How has your revision gone buddy?
I'd always thought 'thou' was more formal than 'you'! but then again that might only be because I might say it to sound Shakespearian or funny or something (I'm the most unfunny person in the multiverse :/), so "How art thou" sounds a lot more formal - strange how it's actually the other way round!
I haven't done much FP2, but I agree about FP3 - it's actually one of my favourite modules Admittedly quite tricky at times but then what would be maths without a challenge? Oh, I haven't got a fancy calculator - reckon I should invest in one for uni? My friend has a £50 one which does all these crazy functions and you wonder how that whopper of a calculator is even allowed in the exam! (although I don't actually know if it's allowed, kind of hoping that it's not, else he has a crazy advantage over all us minions with our fx-83ES's!).
Oh my crikey, these look so useful, you are a hero :O Are they just questions from past papers? I'm assuming you did OCR too, or if not then you must have had far too much time on your hands
That sounds quite interesting. I'd rather serve G&Ts than ice creams, as I currently do, haha. But yes, great evidence to show you can deal with busy times and potential problem customers!
Uh, the English language just seems to be weird on all levels anyway, in comparison to all the other languages. Like with the whole 'you' thing, and so many different tenses (what on earth even is the English language equivalent of a Spanish imperfect subjunctive tense!?) and those kind of things. Makes it kinda hard for us to learn, although grammar is very logical
It's curious that M4 and M5 compliment the FP modules, you wouldn't think at first that applied modules are so connected to pure ones. I do FP3 though not FP2 (although I do have the textbook and wanted to self teach, but not enough time!) and I must say that although challenging, it is definitely one of the modules I have enjoyed the most so far! That and C4
I wish I had more spare time. I do quite love reading myself; have you ever read Flatland? I'm reading that at the moment, it's all about a 2D world and how a Sphere introduces a Square to Spaceland, i.e. the 3D world. Admittedly a little boring at times, though definitely worth a read
Haha free coffee! It's definitely a good way of earning some cash at uni. There's a Costa and a Curiositea, I think I may have to opt for one or the other to have some sort of income!
Which is precisely why I firmed it
Slough traffic is honestly the worst thing man ever invented. Driving through that horrible, grey Trading Estate every morning is no fun, either D: Did you pass?
Radically changing your mind is not a bad thing you know, for a bizarre reason I'd always wanted to be a journalist?! So I took maths, f maths, Spanish and English lit. Halfway through yr 12, around February, it dawned on me that I was an idiot for not taking physics. So I battled it on my own You're right, it's funny how your choices can change so much in the course of a year. But in the end you amended your sillies, as did I! Shame you dropped the French though, languages are brilliant When you say gap year, do you mean you've already taken your final a-level exams? Ergh, a couple of people I know are self teaching M4 and M5 and like M505 or however many there are D: it looks insane!!
I just remembered, I went to a Stargazing live event in maidenhead earlier this year! Skies weren't clear though, but there was a talk about Jupiter and its moons
Yes; with Cambridge I would have either had to go down the Maths tripos route from 2nd year onwards, or down the Natural Sciences route with physics-y options. To be fair, it wouldn't have been exactly what I would have wanted out of my degree anyway (although it's hard to say this early on!), so in a way, I'm almost glad I didn't get in! It'll be different for postgrad though, we'll actually know what we want to do with the degree!
Haha how coincidental! Well, I say near Windsor, I don't quite like to admit my beautiful Slough surroundings, haha. Maidenhead is only down the road, how strange!
Aw, you don't need Oxford anyway! The way i was told to deal with Cambridge's rejection was that "they don't know what they're missing out on!", haha. It doesn't mean you can't go on to do a postgrad degree there (: I considered Oxford at first actually, went on an open day and it is so, so stunning!
What you did with UCL, I did with Exeter, haha. Got tired of waiting, rejected, just wanting to firm Warwick and getting it over and done with
Indeed, I think for such a young university, it has done really, really well. And job prospects are one of the best, statistically!
I'm from Berks too, 20 mins train journey from West London in fact, ha. I'm just outside Windsor
Indeed; AND Rootes is a longer let. Lugging everything out of JM wouldn't bee too much of a hassle if only Warwick actually had good transport links, which it doesn't seem to, grr.
I think at the end of the day wherever you end you'll just have to make do with it; no point hating your halls only because it wasn't your first choice or whatever I may have to resort to picking hall names out of a hat...
Yup, Kaja here - hi Ben
I've applied to Bath (insurance), Surrey, Exeter and Cambridge, though there wasn't much of a chance of that last one happening anyway - worth a shot I guess! It was 75% Maths/25% physics for Cambridge, all the rest were Phys+Maths. What about you?
