    i thought this was something you only said to impress on interview day! and please don't tell me you LIKE remembering all the organic and transition metal chemistry?! :eek:
    er.. how do i say this without sounding like a nerd?
    i somehow manage to remember all those organic reactions and transition metal whatsits without too much effort, so i guess i like remembering those things because it just comes to me without a lot of effort!

    you won't like things that you find too difficult i guess. however i find maths a nice challenge sometimes so maybe i'm just weird :rolleyes:

    You people actually find physics easy? :eek:

    I only took physics because I thought it would be interesting.

    For some unexplained reason, in my college its considered "cool" if you dare embark on that road of discovery :cool: But Im actually finding it the hardest subject of all, and if chemical engineering is crammed with physics, I think I shall probably opt for a maths degree instead... because math is a breeze!
    Plenty of physics in chem engineering, i dont think there's much chemistry though.

    I too find physics difficult in parts, the theory is okay but sometimes find it hard to apply. Only doing AS at the moment and pretty sure I'll get an A but i dont think i'll continue to A2.

    i think with physics (edexcel syllabus anyway) the AS level was the easiest out of all my subjects as most of the course is just a re-hash of GCSE but at A2 level it has become just as hard as the other sciences (the 2 hour synoptic looks solid!)

    shickles> i wouldn't call that nerdy, id call that gifted! how do you remember the nitrate, nitrile and amine reactions??? they make no sense to me at all and each time i sit an exam i just pray that they won't come up on the paper (and so far its worked!)

    Shickles, we must meet up :p: It's like speaking to a saner version of myself.

    I too find maths a welcome challenge, especially when you get some wierd integral of hyperbolic functions (which Im doing now :p: )

    I do further maths too... isnt it great! Its funny but Im actually finding the further pure modules easier than my A2 course. Im doing all 6 modules this summer aswell... so pressures on! Thats the only thing I despise about further maths... there is no resit option for the final year. All or nothing!

    Oh and as for the chemistry... it's just a memory game! I think the whole think is a mockery to be perfectly honest... a travesty of British education!! :rolleyes:

    Haha it is true, if u like it then it comes naturally. To me economics is a lot easier to remember for the fact that half of it is common sense :p: .

    But in my opinion physics in my opinion is a much easier science cause i dont like memorizing.

    at least your IC offer doesn't require further maths, mine does! ack!
    and yes, we must meet up! i hope to meet the people on here, i think it'd be quite interesting. hopefully all of us get the required grades

    i hate nitrogen compounds too, but i have a feeling they're going to have a big question on that this year! so start memorising them already :p:
