I think an A will be fine to get. Just the A* needs that little bit more!

My Username is really Poisson Distribution :mmm:
yup, picking up FM also next year so that should surely help with C3 and C4? right

Ah right, well at least you've got your priorities right last year! What were your overall grades? They're good choices!
I'm applying next year , but I'm thinking Nottingham, Sheffield, imperial and Southampton, then maybe leed for 5th?
I certainly did, fear of failure certainly motivated me.
I got the standard AAA(no A*s but didn't care as I was glad to have AAA already! )

Nice choices too :yep: I sat the bmat last year but flopped one section hence imperial rejection :hmpf:

Oh right. Well you've got the grades, so you're actually in with a chance
Thanks and yeah, I don't want to take the BMAT so I may change imperial

Thanks, having the grades puts a lot of pressure off one. :lol:
Bmat isn't too bad if you prepare well!

I don't really wanna take more tests, especially if I flop the UKCAT.

Don't worry about the ukcat, lots of uni's don't look into the score too much, some do after interview but if you do well at interviews, the better!

I've emailed a lot of them and the ones I want to go to say they don't have a set cutoff point. And Exeter base interviews on UKCAT & grades, so if I do good, then I'll replace it with imperial.
Personal statement is hardly coming along

That's good news then! :yy:
Exeter and Plymouth have the same admissions policy so you could apply to both and get 2 interviews :yep:

Don't worry about PS for now :lol: Worry in July.

Lol. Remind me again, what's a dative bond, coming from the guy who's applying to chemistry as his 5th choice.

(I'm joking btw )
What are your first choices? :')

I don't think so. AS FM doesn't really help much with C3/C4. FP1 is actually easier than those two units, I'd say.

another physics question! woo!

Attachment 178939

A microlight is a small aircraft powered by a petrol engine. The diagram represents the flight path, AB of a microlight on a short horizontal training flight.

a) on its outward journey the wind velocity is 7.5ms^-1 due north and the resultant velocity of the microlight is 20ms^-1 in the direction 68 east of north, so that it travels along AB
i) show that for the aircraft to travel along AB at 20ms^-1 it should be pointed due east.

b) after flying 10kn in the aircraft turns round and returns along the same flight path at a resultant velocity of 14ms^-1. Assuming that the turn-round time is negligible, calculate the average speed for the complete journey


for a) you can see on the diagram I used trig to find the two lengths of the triangle made under the line AB...whether you need to do this or not i have noooo idea, i really dont get itttt

b) just...don't.
I've no clue if anyone has responded to this, as I can't be bothered browsing through. Just saw your plead for help. You should quote me in future, as that way I'll notice it sooner.

Component velocity North:

20cos(68) = 7.5 ms-1

That velocity is supplied by the wind acting on the microlight, and I'm assuming some statement about the components showing that it must be pointing East will be satisfactory.

Return time = distance / speed

Distance = 10 km = 10000 m
Speed = 14 ms-1

∴ Return time = 10000 / 14 = 714 s

However, we're asked for the average speed for the complete journey. Refer to part a) and we see that the outward journey was at 20 ms-1.

∴ Outward time = 10000 / 20 = 500 s

∴ Total time for complete journey = 714 + 500 = 1214 s

Average speed = total distance / total time taken

∴ Average speed = 20000 / 1214 = 16.5 ms-1 = 16 ms-1 (2sf)
