    :eek: So many people with interviews already, and little ol' me without so much as an acknowledgment...

    Guess they'll wait until they get the BMAT results before deciding whether we are even worth saying hi to!

    Hey i also had and interview on monday, The person who interviewed me asked me mainly ALL physics questions (i thought there wouldnt be any, thats what i had read), asked me things related to my personal statement, like questions on the books i had mentioned on my PS. Ahhh seemed more like an oxbridge interview.

    Eeep, scary :eek:. How long did the interview go on for? And how 'indepth' were the questions on the books? e.g. were they just to ensure that you had read them, or did you actually have to understand + apply the concepts in them?

    the interview was about 20 mins, so not too long, but the questions were quite in depth, but the same person who interviewed me also asked some other people there no physics questions at all. Buit mine was the opposite. The person who had interviewed me hadent read the book, so i was asked to explain what the book was about (which wasent too hard!) but then i was asked quite abit about some of the physics and had to apply them.

    Hrrm, intriguing. Better get swotting up on my books then . I hope they don't ask me to apply the stuff in Einstein's book, rather complicated mathematics in there :shifty: .

    Wow which einstein publications have you read? I was told by a cambridge professor not to touch any of it 'cos it wasn't accesible.

    Lol, yeah its a bit odd . Just his 'Relativity: The Special and General Theory', I think some of it seems a bit oversimplified (e.g. you can tell bits are missing) bit its interesting all the same, even if some of the maths you just have to accept :yep: .

    Sweet... I just finished reading 'Relativity' by Steve Sdams, which I would recommend! By the way... anyone read that article on special relativity in new scientist today? What a load of betty swollocks that was... Rotating trains... NONONONO.

    New scientist the magazine? Or on the webpage? I got one at the beginning of this week, mostly about cancer or something, didn't see anything about relativity in there. :confused:

    edit: Aha, I see a picture of it on the webpage, odd, wonder what mine was that I got then .

    Why Einstein was wrong about relativity? Oh dear :p:

    The magazine out today. It was a big dramatic cover story on how special relativity isn't special. and then 3 pages of waffle on the matter
