    ah, that was where I lost the mark on that test, I didn't relate the poisson dist. back to the question. I'll have to remember to do that. And about the spoiler bit; yeah sure .
    Ah, I see no worries, we've all made that mistake. S2'll probably go to your FM grade (depending on how you do in all the applied units at the end) and it's a good unit for UMS (compared to something like FP2) so just make sure you don't have any regrets at the end of it

    thanks, bit weird I know. Sorry

    You and me need to pull the gear mode to high...
    We certainly do but a lot can be achieved in short time if we really go for it

    64562489[/url]]I did okay funnily enough, there were worse modules :bawling: it was very stressful overall and I wanted to quit in the first year but here I am, reaching the end of the second year and not really studying for exams :rofl:.
    I am honestly scared for Uni. Like obv the exams there will be a lot harder than A levels and I will need to do something about this "omg-lets-be-lazy-before-exams" ritual of mine in order to get good grades

    I'm doing C3, C4 and S2. C3 is okay, vectors in C4 has to be the most annoying topic, S2 is relatively easy but because my teacher is rubbish, I've had to teach the module to myself

    I'm doing maths and further maths (both at AS):
    C1, C2: feeling very confident with the material, just need to make sure everything goes to plan in the exam
    C3, M1, S1: quite confident, just need to do some more past papers and go over some of the harder topics
    S2, M2: really struggling, can't understand a thing on M2 but on S2 I'm improving a bit. I need to sort my M2 game out before the exam

    To tell you the truth, I was too, and in my first year I felt at times that it was too difficult and that I'd be hopeless at exams but the secret is to just keep on top of it all - do the homework set, extra reading if necessary and comb over the lecture notes, but also have fun, you know. Do whatever you want to do with that extra independence. :borat: The first year, unless you want to do a placement year or your first year actually counts, is just there to get used to uni, the difficulty, the quality of study required etc. If you fail then that's trouble but otherwise.. it's all about settling in and getting the best grade you can. The jump is just like from GCSE to A-level, and don't worry - should you struggle, you won't be the only one.

    Good but I'm sick of D1 and M2. I'm beginning to get more confident in FP3 which is pretty solid anyway.

    I'm doing A2 maths and further maths.

    C3: A* in most recent assessment.
    C4: A* in most recent assessment.
    D1: Not done a full assessment yet.
    FP2: A* in most recent assessment.
    FP3: Not got results back yet. Confident though.
    M2: Not done a full assessment yet.

    I have prepared a good amount for all of them... and yet feel like a great storm is coming. Like every exam will be extremely hard. Anyone else get that feeling sometimes? Not to mention M3 being so early for some god damn reason D:<

    M3 is a really nice module. I had to use a lot from M3 to do some slightly tougher mechanics questions.

    Best of luck with that mate.
