Revision for Exams

Re: Revision for Exams

How are people's UCAS applications going? I've applied for Geography and have got offers back from Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam, Salford and a combined Geography/Sport management course at Loughborough. Currently, just waiting to hear back from Lancaster. Planning on having Sheffield as my first choice and then Sheffield Hallam as my back-up.

Re: Revision for Exams

Clicked pay/send last week, so my school should add references and send it away pretty soon!

Applied to (in order of preference):

Edinburgh (Astrophysics)

St Andrews (Astrophysics)

Glasgow (Astronomy & Physics)

Dundee (Physics)

Herriot-Watt (Physics)

All 5 year courses. No idea what job or whatever I'll look for afterwards, but I could always qualify as an accountant (since a degree isn't necessary) if I decide Physics isn't for me.

Re: Revision for Exams

Pretty much done all of the UCAS forms but the choices since I still have no idea what I want to do and the closest couple of Uni's seem to have quite limited computing courses and I don't want to move that far away. But got one choice in Philosophy and Computing and I guess its better then nothing.

How'd you think you did? I almost lost my head on the (sin22.5 + cos22.5)^2 question until I realised how simple it was :o

I'm not sure what to make of this paper, other than confirming I'll be retaking in June.

Overall, it was an alright paper, however there were tricky questions which were worth quite alot of marks. That sin22.5 + cos22.5 messed me up, and the x=cot y question :/ I think both were worth 5 marks aswell :(

Is it me, or do past papers seem way easier especially Jan 2012 and 2011

What do you think you got?

Yeah, some of the the questions were a bit trickier than any I've seen on the past papers. I thought it went rather well, though knowing me I probably lost a few marks for errors as usual :o

Re: Revision for Exams

Just a quick question' date=' are there a lot of students looking at taking engineering next year from your school?[/color']

LOL, ermm like maybe 30 people from like 220 in our grade? Most of the people in my school are going to nearby Uni's and are predominantly becoming Social Science/Humanities/ Politics/Law students. :)

I want to experience somewhere new! :D

Just wondering coz nearly all the guys in my grade are applying for engineering. And seems that the supply might overwhelm the demand.

Re: Revision for Exams

How were your residence experiences in Uni' date=' guys? :)

Next year marks my first Uni year and the torture that is Engineering! :P[/quote']

Halls were brilliant. The accommodation itself was of a really good standard (mine was anyway, depends what type you go for I guess) and the social life is brilliant, you'll enjoy it.
