University First Year Results

Well it's all over, the first year at uni has flown by and I have passed comfortably. Here is the breakdown of my results (all /100): Calculus Methods - 54 Ordinary Differential Equations - 80 Vectors & Matrices - 58 Introduction to Meteorology - 71 Weather & Climate Fundamentals - 55 Env Science - 65 Physics - 60 With weightings taken into account it works out at an average of 62.3% which is a 2:1. Disappointed with a couple of modules, very happy with others, so overall I'm p

First "proper" Week At Uni

After the fun of freshers week, it was time to knuckle down and start what I came to uni for. My first term of my first term involves 4 compulsory modules and an extra optional one. I have 2 Meteorology modules (Introduction to Meteorology and Weather & Climate fundamentals) as well as 2 Maths modules (Calculus and Vectors & Matrices). My optional module is Physics of the Natural World. Thankfully so far the Maths and Physics have been A Level difficulty, but I'm sure that will change ve

A Level Results And Uni!

Great news regarding my A Level results and university. I had a pretty much sleepless night last night, and UCAS said their tracking system would be open "mid-morning" (I took it as 6am). Track did open at 6.10am, I managed to get online at 6.15am and discovered I had been accepted into Reading! My A Level results were Maths - A, Further Maths - B, Physics - B. Absolutely over the moon. I will now be studying Meteorology and Climate with a year in Oklahoma, cannot wait!

One Foot In Reading...and The Uea Visit

Got my January exam results today - and they were a success! The subject where I had most concerns - physics - is now looking much more rosy. Got a B in it, and a good B at that, 70/90 with just 2 marks off an A. That now means I only need 54% of the remaining marks to get the B I need overall. Got 81/100 in my Maths exam which is also an A, and I am now on very comfortable ground to gain the A I need (need an average of 60% in my remaining 2 modules). In short, I now need an absolute disaster
