Anyone doing the wonderfully exciting and fascinating option that is Cosmology? Does everyone agree it is a piece of ****e and they are gonna fail? I got 24% in my mock, and that was one of the best marks in my class!!! Doomed for failure!!!

I'm doing telecommunications, it's not so bad - I'm more concerned about FFE and unifying concepts tomorrow! FFE is way too big and diverse to be just one module!

yeah a couple of my class are doing telecomms but they've had to do it mainly as self study as they haven't got enough teachers in school to teach 2 options. I am concerned about FFE as well - I did it in jan and failed it miserably. I think I understand more of it now, but its such a hard paper. Don't know what UC will be like - lots of word questions I think with the whole syllabus mixed in to each question. Thats what my mock was like anyway. Managed 56% which is alright having not revisied!!! Oh what fun...

Telecomms was pretty much self taught for me too - my teacher knew sweet FA about it. She said, and I quote "It'll be a good experince for me to do it too - I haven't done anything with telecomms since university!". *****.

And I buggered FFE in January too. Hopefully they got that one out of their system and this will be a nicer one tomorrow... I'm doing UC before it though, would be nicer the other way round... And with synoptic economics in the morning, I think I'm going to collapse at the end of the day! Still, on the bright side, only one left after that...

I have UC today too, but aside from learning several zillion formulae and definitions from all the modules I really don't know how to revise for it. Aside from the 2 exams today, I have to chemistry modules on tuesday before cosmology on thursday next week and then I'm done. At last.

Oh, and its good to know that all female physics teachers are *****es too...mine os the most patronising cow in the world and only speacks to the members of the class who repeatedly get A's in everything. Which isn't me!!!

Everyone in my class finds Cosmology crap - the only good thing is we have quite a good teacher so for all that Einstein's Thought Experiments crap we have examples using silly characters. That was the only interesting thing all year!!!
