    Yes but he goes to a posh grammar school where they have professors teaching him and all.
    Uh no. No profs at our school. We are greeted by an old man who is hot on Astrophysics, and has been with our school for over 40 years.

    He is a fellow of the british astronomy association (or something like that) and he actually knows Patrick Moore personally (freaky)

    And even though we are doing GCSE Astrophysics, it covers some of the basic 1st year sections in Universities. Quite a lot infact. (the bits he teaches us anyway)

    My astrophysics teacher is eccentric to the highest degree.

    He was awarded a Cambridge fellowship to research for 2 terms, but he declined as he wanted his dog to come as well.

    He was nominated for the fellowship of the BAA, by Patrick Moore and the Chairman of the BAA. He was the youngest member in its history.

    He is about 65, and he can do handstands.

    My teachers struggle to do AS Level exam questions half the time. It's a piss take. :rolleyes:

    My mechanics teacher doesn't even know what SOHCAHTOA is. :rolleyes:

    BTW: You got any results to come tomorrow Phil?

    Cheers.

    Although I already have some security as I got 100% on the AS Coursework - This is worth 15% of the total AS Grade, therefore I already have 45/300 UMS.

    As for the other Module 1's - No, all in the summer.

    Wow, I'm seriously impressed.
    Having read his book, I know that her name is Kim Baskerville and she gave up research cos Durham were quite nasty to her, among other things.

    It must be great to have an ex-researcher working with you. I've read a couple of her papers.
    Did she ever bring him in to talk to you or anything?

    yeah, he came in and did a talk about the gravitational constant and the speed of light and the sort of stuff he was famous for in those times. but i dont think she was suited to teaching GCSE physics. i didnt have anything against her, but it is different teaching a class of 15/16 year old kids who aren't really interested, and lecturing to a group of interested undergraduates, and unfortunately for her it didnt work out that well.

    do you enjor chemistry and physics? i enjoy both of them but as you may have gathered i want to go into law.......although subjects dont really matter.....if i did history and french on top of chem, physics, ad maths i think it would be good
    i said that i want to study law very early on...the 4th post i think!
