    I wish I could, I have a TMA due in on Wednesday that I'm still working on. Quantum mechanics are evil.

    Why so scary?
    Because it's maths, and I can't do maths :afraid:

    Also I get them in a special format for faulty people, and they send bits as soon as they're available. So they've sent me books from the middle of the course, but I haven't received the start yet.

    Alas, I wish I could help you out, but my mathematical capabilities are diabolically poor

    Faulty people is the best term I have ever heard.
    I will now refer to my crappy eyes as faulty eyes.

    Thankyou :o:

    Do you get anything special for being faulty?

    I get special formatting (comb binding) and I'm hoping if I have exams I'll get extra time

    No I am only faulty with my eyes really so I get no extra provisions.

    How does the comb binding help, if you don't mind me asking?

    My friend has aspergers and dyslexia and she gets private tuition, double the course materials and, I believe, lots of leeway with the exams. All funded by the OU. Pretty lucky stuffs.
