Yeah, I like working with numbers. It'd be easy.

I can't imagine I'd ever leave academia and join the real world though. Research would be alright I suppose.
Again, I ask, why aren't you applying for Maths then?!

I'm not good enough.

If I could go back 3 years or so I'd concentrate on my maths and apply for it.

But I can't. So I'm stuck doing this tripe for the rest of my life :facepalm:

Yeah, you're right. I do like it, I suppose. But I'm not really very passionate about it.

I mentioned it, so mainstream :P

(Original post by CJG21)
Likewise :grin:

It wasn't mentioned in any of my interviews so I was quite happy

Although, that being said, my weeks of work experience wasn't mentioned. :unimpressed:

See what I mean? It's a bit of a cliche to mention it!

That's better, I guess.

You'd stand out if you didn't mention it then, if that is the case. Better to be the same as everyone than worse than everyone!

true. If you can't beat them, join them.



I will admit all the homo/ lumo stuff in WCRH really confused me when I tried to read it the first time...

Aha, likewise. I don't think I can recall any of it now, I'm glad none of the interviewers asked me about it. :lol:

I'll read it again over the summer, and do it slowly, making notes if I need to.

You'll find that a lot of the VSEPR stuff will come up in your first year. (Chemical Bonding by Mark J. Winter is the **** for this)*


* He's definitely not my DoS or anything...

The first 3 or 4 chapters were fine. Then I realised I had like 2 weeks to finish it before my interview and didn't take the rest of it in. :facepalm:

I've had him for 2 modules last year, and I have him for 2 modules this year as well. He's lovely. The eyebrows are somewhat intimidating. And it's pretty awk when I bump into him on the way to the library on a sunday morning. I usually look like crap.

Hated VSEPR before uni, didn't quite get any of the questions right. But now I actually get it it's fun predicting shapes

Same. Because at A level they just get you to remember a load of shapes.
Which your lecturer for your VSEPR module then spends 4 weeks trying to get you to un-remember them...

yeah exactly! Now that they don't have to simplify it down it all makes sense

EVERYTHING makes more sense when they don't have to simplify it.

I have an organic chemistry exam tomorrow. A friend has posted this on my course's FB group. I thought you'd find it equally as hilarious as we have.
Remember guys, it's not about how well you do tomorrow but about how many times you can legitimately say 'backside attack'

it is SN2, AND WE GOT TO MENTION IT!
Basically, his point was, 'It doesn't matter how well the exam does/doesn't go. I'm just interested in how many times we can mention backside attack.'
