I’m doing physics with astrophysics and I’m a little lost considering there is no information about this online.
What is the point of this test? Is it important? As in will I get kicked off the course for failing or something considering I haven’t touched a textbook in a month or so lmfao
What will be on the test? Will it be course specific, as I’m completely lost as to what I should re-revise now.

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

I'm going to be starting the same course, and I have the same question! I've tried everything to find out about this except actually contact the university... It's been a while since I revised any of my Maths, and it's making me really nervous

Someone else doing my course?!? I’ve looked everything and haven’t encountered anyone yet, beginning to think I was on my own haha. I might call them, but I think it’ll just be general knowledge, as I saw another universities post and they said the maths one was pretty much just C1 and C2 questions, but just make sure you know how to integrate and differentiate etc. The physics section is ironically the one I’m worried about, as you actually have to understand the stuff lmao.
I think it’s more of a measure at to whether you’ll have to attend revision sessions or not, praying it isn’t in anyway difficult though.

You're the first one I've found on this course too, haha. The thing is that I don't really know much about the UK system and the difficulty levels and all, since I'm an international student. Calculus should be fine enough, I just hope the Geometry isn't too bad..
Having to understand the concepts of Physics is so much better though 😁 I'm really looking forward to it!
I haven't heard much about the revision sessions though. How many times a week do they take place? Can we willingly join them even if we do well on the test? I think I might need it 😂

Oh my god I’m so sorry I haven’t signed in for ages now lmfao, I’ve generally assumed uk maths and all that **** is easier here so don’t worry! You might have to stay at a maths revision session at max haha. Just hope they don’t ask for integration 😓
I got the revision session stuff from the welcome week timetable but I have no idea about the rest :/

You should join the Facebook UCLan group, see who’s living with you etc. I think I’ve found one other person doing Physics With Astrophysics on there so it’s probably a good place to start 😅

Oh I don't really use Facebook. But I'm looking forward to meeting you all! 😁 Hopefully we won't have to meet at any revision sessions!

Hi, I do maths (2nd year) but we also had a diagnostic test at the beginning of first year. It's just to see where you're at and what you're struggling with, and kind of to get everyone on the same level before lectures start. If you dont do that well in some areas there will be a little revision session towards the end of the week (probably on Friday) where they will go over a few questions and things like that to help. Youll only have to go to the sessions on areas you struggled with. Most of the questions we had were multiple choice, but I'm not sure if it's the same with Physics. Yeah, so dont stress to much about the test. Hope this helps. Good luck at uni x
