    Psychology!! I can't see myself doing anything else~!

    Psychology provides us with a deeper understanding of ourselves and others.

    What i'm particularly interested in is the potential of the human brain. Firstly, in human intellect. I am always awestruck when I read accounts of geniuses such as Einstein, Tesla, etc. Ppl with Savant's Syndrome. I would like to further discover the mechanisms in such prodigal faculties. I would like to study the minds of those who do very well academically. Let's face it, some ppl are just born with the ability to do well, such as having excellent memories. But what are their acquired characteristics? Can the way you raise your child change forever their intellect? I know that a lot of research has been done on this, and I want to take part in this cutting-edge research.

    Secondly, in parapsychology. Does it exist? If it does, I want to discover the workings behind it!

    I also love biology~.

    Hyponosis~ it's just fascinating!!

    There are soooo many things i'd also like to put down but we'd all go zzzzzz. So i'll leave it there I've put down Nottingham as my firm and I can't wait to go there.

    Ah but doesn't natural science stem from mathematics, we'd be nowhere without maths.

    engineering - i just love the interaction between maths + physics and learning the principles of how things works! Sad I know, the better answer could be... boys do engineering - i'm a **** :-p (that was a joke by the way - i'm not!)

    Physics and Astrophysics.. cos I think astro is cool basically and wanna do research in it.
    Yay! Another physicist! I'm studying Physics because I enjoy the challenge of solving maths and science problems simultaneously!

    I'm only one from my school going to Oxford (only 2 of us applied) and there's a girl going to Cams (only one who got in out of 5). However, I am only physicist from my school and so end up rambling on about string theory and the twin paradox to myself with my mates going "ummm....ok?!"

    . There's at least one other physicist on here.. elpaw and he's at Oxford (edders will be doing Physics too, starting this year.. he's going to IC though).

    I really need to revise everything I did last term (and this term tbh).. I think I had problems understanding the twin paradox. Relativity takes some getting used to.. at least you get it!

    It's death personified.

    Ha, no it's not bad really. Just don't fall behind or you're facing an uphill struggle.

    psychology- it is the one subject i find completely fascinating. i can't wait to study it at university. in particular i love the way that psychology can be applied to reality to make a genuine difference to people's lives.

    oh, and i want to be a clinical psychologist too.
