    Nope, I've decided I'm possessing your body in your quantum mechanics lectures - no objections! :P

    Haha, I would probably be jumping like a little kid in a candy store if that was me!
    The phys undergrads were sayin that he has to do lectures at the university place/main lecture theatre because so many ppl turn up to them hahaha
    I'd be pretty annoyed if I didn't get a seat because some random student just wanted to see brian cox

    It's a combination of M1-M5
    Looks pretty interesting! I'll be starting on Wednesday. Hopefully it'll be finished by early March. I really want to get Stats done by late March so I can focus on doing complete past papers though haha
    By your posts I can tell you're not loving FP2, and I can completely relate. It's a nightmare (or at least my equivalent is!)

    Jesus christ good luck man, although I'm sure you won't need it! My least favourite part of mechanics (bear in mind I only did up to m2) was centres of mass and statics. Yeah I am glad we finished stats early so I can just repeatedly do practice!
    Yeah, ugh just makes me feel so stupid, hopefully it all comes together so I can get into Manchester!

    Thank you haha!
    And I think I'll need it. I just want to get straight to the past papers. So you've definitely firmed Manchester, congrats! I'm having my interview at Imperial in a couple week's time, and that's my first choice!
    I really just want A levels to be over. My teachers keep telling me the first year of uni is a breeze compared to A levels!

    Thanks! ooh good luck, I'm sure you'll be brill am so gutted I couldn't apply for imperial, I'm sure you'll have an amazing time!
    I know what you mean. I'm worried for first year uni but I am infinitely glad that pure maths is essentially over this year. The thing I'm worried about mostly at uni is the one day a week I'll have to attend lecture/seminars etc that are all in French brain ache expected

    Oooh but learning in a different language sounds fascinating. I really hope I can learn a new language when I get to university (looking at Chinese, Russian or Hebrew).

    Wow that would be cool, I did fancy Russian at one point! Yeah I have to do a certain amount of language prep per week for my year abroad but I think it will be a killer
    What alphabet does Hebrew use? It's not roman is it?

    Nope! It's simply the Hebrew alphabet. Completely different to the Roman alphabet haha. I can read and write in Hebrew, so that's a plus, and I can participate in a basic conversation

    Are you mei? I'm doing OCR mei fp3 at the moment. Vector calculus is the devil's work!

    Just realised I'd written vector calculus instead of vector geometry *face palm* sorry

    C4 is notably harder than c3 I'd say

    I think that's a given. Trig is my biggest problem. Not a fan.

    Definitely! I remember at the very beginning of year 12 my physics teacher was trying to teach us how to resolve forces in what has to be the most complicated way possible. After several lessons I went home and looked at it properly and suddenly thought 'oh, it's just trigonometry' and everyone got it after that :lol:
