I did better on it than the last paper I think but that was probably more to do with exam technique than the paper (in paper 1 I didn't actually read all the questions so didn't do 2 of the easier V&M q's)

The DE equations were computationally intense and pretty non-standard (who on earth would know Taylor's theorem to third order for several variables...? Not even Taylor). Urgh. On the upside, two of the probabilities were easy, and I could get another one out. It didn't help that I repeatedly kept misreading the time and thinking I had half an hour less than I did, causing many careless mistakes. The short questions were... not short bar the first one, so I avoided most of them. Sigh.

Couldn't agree more with that sentence. However I do believe when taking notes it is very frustrating to have her wipe everything off the board. When I go and see her in her office with specific problems she is very clear and spends as much time as I need explaining it.

The most annoying thing about our lectures is the girl that sneezes really loudly...
That's our new president of mathssoc! :cool:

Charlotte :o: Tbf it is absoltuely hilarious xD Quite deafening when she does it in alift or somet :eek:

half way through exams, haven't posted here in so long, V&M + Analysis was a complete nightmare, so many silly mistakes.

DE & probability = <3, probably my 2 strongest subjects, feel happy now

Same, planned on doing alot but ended up going into the centre and buying a humidor and half a dozen cigars then took a massive nap. Just woke up now - furiously revising again.

How did your latest exam go?

Failed miserably.
My attempt at mechanics was to learn how one particle moves so I can calculate max height, max distance etc etc. Get in the exam and it's TWO particles, so none of my methods worked :mad:

Then I remembered the angular of momentum formula and the other mechanical crap, get in the exam "starting from newtons second law" prove the formula :mad: So got about 2marks on mechanics if he likes my sketch of a helicopter, otherwise it'll be 0. And the ODE's was just disastrous

Strating to dread linear algebra, So many definitions and proofs and applying of them to remember. It's not difficult, just a large quantity Should of really done accountancy at uni.

To be honest 2 was very short too. If you're confident in manipulating partial derivatives, it takes less than 10 minutes. You have to concentrate mildly for the first part, but meh.

I have just found what would've been the perfect thing to do in almost all my exams. Too late for me, but maybe some of you would appreciate it..

Hello all,

I am planning to apply for the Imeprial Maths with Applied Maths/Mathematical Physics degree in the future. The subjects i take are: Maths,Further Maths, Biology and Chemistry. Will i be disadvantaged for not having Physics as it is Mathematical Physics?

I have tried emailing them but have had no success in getting a response. Any help will be appreciated
Applying to Imperial, you will be very disadvantaged...

This is when you need to start drinking heavily. Your worries will be qualmed - but your revisions plans may suffer also, but come on you can fail the first year and they will let you carry on.

Yeah, am I misreading that or have people decided that boozing in a linux room is a good plan, after the previous people deciding to get it on in there?

I might make a TSR thread later.

Its just there is some gay upside T for linear algebra. Its like, what the hell is that symbol.

P.S. Wikipedia will probably have the anwser.
