    Nah, I only take June exams coz I'm just regular A level not IAL.
    GL what you hoping to score in Unit 4 IAL Physics? A/A* If you miss a A*
    are you going to resit it or?

    What did you put as your firm/insurance choice over in the states?
    They all got back to you or?

    Oh I gotcha I doubt I'll miss A* so I probably won't resit.

    In the US offers are unconditional, so I have until May to decide what I want to pay the enrollment fee for. But I'm also waiting on 4 other decisions which come out late March/early April, so I'll have to take those in to account before I can decide.

    UChicago is fantastic for economics, and also for physics. Not so much for engineering

    Nice I've still got Jan 2016 Unit 4 IAL past paper to complete(practice) even though I'm doing regular A level Physics as the syllabus is the same more or less and I can find out how I'd fair if I did the paper you just completed last month.

    Oh, I didn't know they were unconditional. How much is terms of $ do they differ for fees if you don't mind me asking? Sorry If I'm nosey.

    I was curious because I was looking at MSc Physics (with a year abroad)
    at KCL courses and since I'm studying in UK it kind of gives me the best of both worlds... issue is where to study abroad :lol:

    Ooh good luck - a couple of interesting bits in there. Places easy to slip up, but overall a decent-easy paper.

    Yeah That's one of the nice things. The fees are the same if you're an international like most of us taking Jan exams. But if you're a UK citizen you're probably much better off financially staying home. The fees in the US for most private schools equate those paid by internationals in the UK in most courses (~25k). However the nice thing about the US is that scholarships and financial aid are readily available.

    Very nice! I would jump on that opportunity if I were a physicist. UChicago is a terrific place for physics. 12 Physics Nobel Laureates as alumni :eek2:

    Yes I do! In fact it's the only reason I applied to Cambridge and not a slightly lower uni like Southampton :rofl:

    But those lucky material science students at Imperial get to go there too Not us aeronautical engineers :emo:

    Alright. I can't wait to try that paper sometime on Sunday. Where can I get a copy of the exam script & model answers?

    Ah I see. I saw on UChicago that their Physics alumni "Robert Andrews Millikan"
    as in Millikan oil drop experiment :laugh: Crazy..

    I really like MIT, Caltech and Princeton then again Cambridge does look pretty.

    Impressive. Not quite as impressive as boasting Newton as an alumni, but impressive nonetheless.
