Not as much as I should have done, but I can kind of do it/remember doing it all. I did the Section A stuff, and hoping I can be bothered to refresh my memory sometime in freshers week.

Its just further pure most of it, so should be do-able, and its an aural (or is it oral? - i never know which one to use!) test, so should be ok!

lol! I found we are going to have 27 hours lectures per week. Plus one hour self-study for each lecture hours, there will be 54 hours. Considering I am somewhat stupid than others, there will be approximately 60 hours per week. OMG, we hae to study for 10 hours a day to leave ourselves one day free!

The items in blue aren't lectures. They're tutorial groups so you'll only do 1 of them, leaving us with a cool 20 hours a week contact time.

20 hours isn't bad, it's what I had in year 12 :yep: and we'e meant to do 40 hours work overall. So your average working week.

Assuming you don't procrastinate (yeah right) you could socialise every day of the week...

I'm not liking all these morning starts though. Especially when we're going home 4 5 and 6 oclock :'(

Is it true that, from the third week onwards, we will get a test of four questions (one for each module) each week and that these will count for 5% of our final mark for the module?

I slept in and missed the morning today :rolleyes: apparently was very boring though :p: got my folder anyway, which I suppose was the important thing :P

Yeah, if you look on the timetable then there's assessment tests scheduled every Friday morning. Fun times.

After today, I have some questions.

We have two tests this week: the diagnostic test and the admissions test. I know that the diagnostic test is for our personal tutors and all the staff in the department to see where we stand and how much extra teaching we will need. What is the admissions test for?

What is this "Active Maths!" thing on Friday?

Will the party on Friday be any good?

I was given the wrong course coding. Could I use this opportunity to switch over to the MSci? Is it worth opting for the MSci if I'm not sure? What about my student finance -- wasn't that for a 3-year BSc?

So do the results of all the weekly tests together count for a total of 5% of your mark for the half-unit?

Thanks.

think the admissions test might be the TSA thingy. God help me I'm going to fail it anyway.

I have no idea what active maths is lol, might just be a talk about how 'MATHS IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT ARRRRGGGH WORK WORK WORK HARD OR YOU'LL FAIL' kinda thing. There's a thing about active maths in the folder

Check your imperial email about the course coding, apparently they got some wrong on the folders.

Yep, that's right. Bear in mind that the YEARS for a BSc are weighted 1 : 4 : 4 so in the grand scheme of things it's worth **** all

50%? I think I am likewise, but I have to say the questions were fairly easy, kinda cannot believe myself actually had a hard time tackling them....
Anyway, I think it does not matter at all. As a matter of fact, somebody even did not attend it...

Oh it matters! It matters a lot! This is a diagnostic test and a low score most likely dictates unsuitability for Imperial.

They say it's the easiest test we'll ever take at the college, which worries me, even though i did well.
