    For those of you who do not know me I am a Finnish guy at Oxford in the last year of PPE - I am now procrastinating and here's what I've been thinking about recently.

    Recently, I've been really into theoretical physics and was sort of trying to learn advanced physics on my own. More specifically astrophysics. The last time I have properly studied Physics was in GCSE-equivalent exams in my home country. At the time I found it easy and not really that interesting.

    But getting your head around understanding all of the abstract things in proper Physics is quite tough. I had to study hard to be able to engage in a constructive debate about the universe with Physics students here at Oxford. It is also very interesting; like the most profound of all natural sciences that enables you to understand existence.

    I would like to hear your opinions on the topic, especially if you are already a Physics university student yourself.

    Do you basically have to be a genius to really understand all of the things like Relative Velocity, electromagnetism or whether the neutrinos have mass? Not only at Oxford, but at any university with a Physics programme which would be classified as decent, in order to get a 2:1 there.

    I am not downgrading my own degree or making hierarchies. I am simply admiring Physics here
