    That ELEC2 paper was much harder
    I wouldn't say harder, just require a slighly different way of thinking an the questions were similar to what we had seen before, just with slight twists...

    For the question with the two push pull amplifiers on the same circuit, with supply of 15 V, did you have to double the voltage to 30V when calculating the rms power dissipation? Thanks

    Yeah you did, but I didn't, think the final correct answer was 225W

    I want to study Computer Science, hopefully at Cambridge, and at the moment I'm doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Computing and Electronics...

    You?

    I'm doing the same as you except I dropped Computing for Chemistry halfway through the year I was going to study Physics at Oxford but I've recently changed my mind and I'm no longer sure as to what I wish to study at university... no a great start... hehe :P I was thinking about pursuing electronic engineering... :/

    I was very tempted by electronic engineering, but in the end I think I will enjoy CompSci more, and most CompSci courses have some electronics content anyway so it doesn't get completely left out anyway .

    The thought of a pre physics degree would kinda scare ,me xD
