    Yeah I think chemistry spec looks a bit harder!

    Maybe time dilation... and that optics stuff I've never done before will throw me off but should be decent enough

    I best get in now lol
    Yeah it probably is a bit.

    IMO time dilation and optics are probably the easiest topics. SHM is far worse.

    Really? I couldn't get my head around Loretnz last year when doing an astronomy thing, I gave up after a lesson

    What happens in SHM? I like it haha

    This is probably bad advice but you don't actually have to get your head around it to answer the questions well... It's not too hard anyway if you spend a bit of time on it. Read a decent E&M book to think about special relativity in a different context.

    Damping. Lots and lots of damping.

    My exams start in less than five weeks and being me I hadn't started revision until last week. Six subjects to cover and very little time to do it in.

    Sorry if I offended! I'm just pretty sure you're working harder than you need to this early on. It can actually have more of a negative effect from stress levels/overworking. Remember you just need to meet the offer at this stage; near-100% UMS is overkill

    Better safe than sorry though, I guess.

    Just noticed this acknowledgement - might explain why the course is good...

    Acknowledgements
    I inherited this course from Stephen Siklos. His excellent set of printed lecture notesform the backbone of these notes and can be found at:

    It seems to cover a lot of ground in one term. I guess that's typical for Camb...?

    Mainly maths exercises. I also make mind-maps for chemistry to link similar topics together in my mind, make notes on big post-its and stick them around my desk and do the odd past paper (but I'm trying not to go overboard so I have a few in the week before each exam).

    Ah I see! Yeah, lmao, people already done all the papers twice, it's a bit ridiculous

    I feel like although I want to write out notes and revise, there's no point because it's just the same old stuff in a different format again. I suppose writing does help entrench the content into your mind though

    Yeah that's a decent amount for one term, but it is for mathmos :lol:

    Don't be ridiculous, ofc you didn't offend I'm not that touchy!
    I do IB, so it isn't about UMS, but my offer was a point over my predicted grades :hide: so must work hard to reach it!

    Yesss are you too? I'm sure you'll be fine main reason for so much hard work now is because of a complete lack in work ethic over the past two years :ninja:.
