    No, cause there's no university by that name.

    This might help.

    There is a rock climbing society and there even is a climbing wall in Mile End. They also went to Dorset and did some climbing there!

    Yeah I'm a biology student here. I'm actually doing Biology with Psychology and I really like it, I'm in my first year. Most of the accommodation is good, unless you get in through clearing, where you'll end up in a house like me which sucks. There is a rock climbing soc at mile end (where most of the biology and accommodation is) and the med school has a mountaineering group which i think you'd be able to join too, which is up in whitechapel (where the genetics classes are). It's an alright area to live once you get used to the sound of sirens every half hour or so riding past. 15 minutes walk to massive Sainsbury's a little Tesco close too. Also, we're on the no. 25 bus route, so if you want to get to Whitechapel/the supermarket quick you can catch that bus, which noone ever pays for. Lol.
    Word of advice though, if you do come, FORGODSSAKESDON'TTAKETHECELLDYNA MICSMODULEYOU'LLWANTTOKILLEVERYT HING. Apart from that, top banana =)

    I take it this is in reference to a certain lecturer. I know the semester has gone but this is for the next two years and new first years when they read this. That module is compulsory I'm afraid.

    My advice would be to go to his first lecture, get the handout, get the book and answer the questions he gives you on that sheet because that's what you are examined on. In terms of the minitests, f*** his side. They count for 1% which at first year level can be made up in the practicals and exam.

    But do go to the second year minitests. They count for more.
