Getting ready to pick my options for next year, might as well rename my degree to physics :lol:

Marking papers? For a university exam? It's a bit early isn't it? :confused:
Possibly the maths GCSE papers taken a couple of weeks ago? :dontknow:

Had my last ever lecture yesterday. Not quite sure how I feel about that, but I'm definitely ready to move on to bigger and better things.

Have you decided what said things are?

Oh hai guys, long time no speak. How y'all doing? I was marking ridiculously hilarious exam papers, got that 11pm TSR nostalgia and had to log on.
'sup. I'M CURIOUS - WHAT PAPERS?

TSR man, I wonder when we'll all log on for the last time.

Went to my first lecture in Princeton on Thursday. And my first IAS number theory seminar. And met MANJUL BHARGAVA. DUDE MANJUL IS THE BEST. He has mad**** crazy great ideas. The actual number one most ridiculously creative, ridiculously modest, ridiculously great human.

I feel excited and terrified.

I really should stop, but it's like a very sad and misguided addiction.

Starting six weeks tomorrow I have four exams on consecutive days that count for 25% of my degree. Now is the time I start to regret slacking.

Where are you thinking of going? And to do what?

Well I think it's the amount of content and understanding of proofs :sadnod: I'm working through the weeks (9 in total) and being ill for half of the term didn't help in terms of knowledge gaps. I have also spent longer on certain proofs then I anticipated (for example, limits of supriums and certain subsequences). It's my last exam (31st May) but I realised that I will have to finish all the content by Wednesday so that would give me enough time to work on other modules :sigh:

I'm quite scared and considering that I want to do postgrad (well a masters at least), I don't want Analysis to haunt my transcript :erm:

Things like Bolzano-Weierstrass? Try the first volume of Zorich, chapters 3-6 (skip over the stuff you don't need). Its clearly written so that might help, if you don't have a decent set of full notes.

Oxford's notes might be useful too.

If it helps, I found Analysis really hard until something clicked. It is a new way of thinking than what you're used to, especially if you're not a pure mathmo!

Finally, some perspective: no one will care about one module mark being lower than your usual marks. Not one university. Try your best and see what happens

I think cpdavis is in his second year, the notes you've attached Shamika is the first analysis course from the first term in Oxford. I've attached the links to the notes to the other two first year analysis courses and the second year analysis course - so whatever you're currently doing should be covered in one of these notes.

First Year - Analysis II

Analysis III in first year is to do with integration, but the notes aren't uploaded yet (since it's taught in this upcoming term) - I do have the notes somewhere though if you want them.

Second year analysis

Thanks The Second year analysis is our complex variables course (but the actual reasoning gets covered in third year). The first link I will use. Thanks!
