    (Original post by binarythoughts)
    Dig deep, I'm sure there's a few.
    I don't think I can. Maybe a nursery rhyme...

    How? I know too many songs actually. People get annoyed at me because I sing too much in class hahaah
    Entire songs from start to end?

    Well, it's probably because the average runtime of the songs I listen to is.. Just have a look at my current playlist :lol:

    S3 is lovely! (Mostly.)
    My FM has a combo of S3 and S4, so I'm not sure what corresponds to what. But there's 2 chapters in my stats which is not lovely at all hahah

    How many applied modules are you taking?
    FM with CIE makes you take a combination of all mechanics and stats so I've M3-M5 and S3-4 in FM, and S1 and S2 in normal maths (M1/2 and S1/2 are not done in FM)

    s2 is bad enough for me. I feel for yaPosted from TSR Mobile
    S2 is nice enough haha I like it because I've a textbook so stuff makes sense. But not having textbooks for S3-4 is insanely hard. I have to google everything from when to use each distribution to when to use pooled and unpooled variances for different means to when to use n-1 when looking at t-distributions...
    Overall, a nightmare

    I think I'm definitely settling on Monash University (in Melbourne). The University of Melbourne is kind of crap for various reasons, even if it's ranked more highly.

    Bivariate data
    t-distributions
    Geometric distributions
    Negative exponential distributions)
    Hypothesis testing
    Chi-squared (goodness of fit)
    Changes in distribution functions (eg Y = X^3 and so on)

    What reasons exactly?

    I've always had the idea of Melbourne being the better uni overall: more targeted for law/banking etc. and produces better research.

    To be fair, they are both in the G8 which is akin to the Russell Group.

    Yeah, they're both great unis for postgrad/research, but for undergrad Melbourne is just the worst (for me at least; it depends on what you want). They have this model for Bachelor's degrees, the "Melbourne Model", that basically forces you to do a Masters in your subject with them, because their standard three-year Bachelor's degree isn't actually equivalent to a Bach's from anywhere else, because they make 1/4 of the course up of elective "breadth subjects", which can't be from within the faculty of your major (so if I were to major in Physics, 1/4 of the course wouldn't actually have anything to do with Physics) PLUS Honours isn't available for every subject in the B.Sci, including Physics, so it's not really an option for me unless I want to spend an extra year doing what is effectively my undergrad.

    That's at least my understanding of it. It was pretty much universally criticised as a cash-grab by the university when it was brought in in 2008, especially after it resulted in the downsizing of a lot of faculties (to my knowledge, labs are actually optional for B.Sci there, since it's cheaper to just do theory).

    I've spoken to a lot of people regarding this, trying to decide whether it would be worth going to UoM just for the possible superiority of the teaching/course itself, but the general advice seems to be "If you know what you want to do, you probably don't want to go to UoM". I definitely know what I want to do, and I think doing Monash's Bachelor of Science Advanced - Research suits me far better.

    Nope. I find it's better not to have any distractions when doing past papers.
