    Its no big deal. In my experience nobody likes practicals, but they are not as bad as they sound. There is normally a crib sheet of some description to follow and there are usually people on hand to provide assistance. That is true whatever uni you go to. Most practicals are also done in pairs, which helps (again this is common in most unis I believe).

    Don't worry, it isn't like they expect you to do a 4 day practical completely independently on cutting edge research. It's boring and stressful, but doable
    Ah cool, I would much prefer to be doing practicals in a pair, makes it more sociable.

    It's a few years since I "did Physics at university". I'm Head of Physics in a Sixth Form College.
    Its suprising how many people, despite your name, dont realise you are in fact a teacher :p:

    I picked my name in order not to deceive students. Normally I simply use col as my online name.

    Well I believe F1 fanatic, Princess Ana, AlphaNumeric and teachercol are some members who are doing physics at University.
    Indeed, minus teachercol and I think with the addition of people like Mehh, AMM and Wanderer, although they must be near the end of their course I would think.

    I can't work in pairs I find it stressful...I seem to have a bossy trait (I like to be in control of a situation), which people don't like. lol

    True, I just thought you (teachercol) were another TSR member with a strange name...

    Whoops, please accept my apologies :p:. Speaking of practicals the above description is a nice broad common one to use in times of uncertainty

    Hello, can I join please?

    Also if the Einstein v Feynman debate is still going (I skipped a few pages of posts) then I vote Einstein. General relativity is far more elegant than any form of quantum mechanics.

    Heya,

    Sorry to jump onto your thread, but to put simply:

    *I have a Physics re-sit next Fri at Uni
    *It's for a foundation paper which i have been told is v similar to AS/A Level
    *I have past papers and things, but i just don't understand a word!

    So if any of you could recommend a tutor maybe? (I've already emailed loads but no responses as yet) - Or if any of you are willing to help? Obviously sort out some sort of payment!...

    Many thanks for just even reading Once again sorry for jumping onto the thread!

    Libby
