As I got eight modules exempted upon entry (my uni is outside UK), and I didn’t do too well when I did five modules in the past 2 terms, so I am thinking to cut my study load like this:
Summer term 2022: 1 module
Fall term 2022 to Spring term 2025 except Fall term 2023: 5 modules > 4 modules

As I feel that if I do 4, I have more time per module and there will be less knock on effects due to struggles in one module. I will learn everything from two modules beforehand, while having continued revision on them in the rest of the semester. I will spend more time on the other two modules, so it’s 30/30/20/20 for the four modules. I can be able to do well with this.

I may retain at 5 now, as I may minor physics. I was my secondary school’s inaugural IAL dux for Physics with a score of 571/600 UMS, despite doing the unit 4 exam after just six weeks of prep (and getting 100/120), and did a physics module at university BEFORE ENTRY. I also picked up 85/100 in M1 in the January 2021 series, despite only starting to learn the stuff in November 2020!

I have also made a couple of Physics related threads on hkitalk, a transport forum, talking about how those things work on buses.
