For undergraduate physics in England the three most prestigious universities are probably Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial. Then there is a large group of other very good universities including UCL, Manchester, Durham, Bristol, Warwick and Bath.
I'm a first year undergraduate at Cambridge and...
I don't know what country you in but here's a syllabus: http://www.imperial.ac.uk/images/ugs_pdfs/bioeng.pdf" [Broken]

What are you thinking of doing after your A-levels?
Chemistry is really difficult in my opinion, compared to physics and maths/further maths. There is so much more to remember in chemistry and this made it kind of boring to me.
Here's the first bit of the log. Anyone know what happened?

Recently after i have read a thread and then click back my browser (safari) crashes. This doesn't happen all the time (about 50% maybe). I was wondering if anyone could suggest anything or has experienced the same problem.
If no one knows how to fix it i'll download firefox and see if that's...
Well i wouldn't say it's mostly maths in the first year. There is a lot of maths but you do get to do three experimental courses in the first year from this list: http://www.cam.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/courses/natsci/part1a.html"
I don't think that's the best example, you cannot compare the application process of mathematics and physical science to that of a subject like medicine. With my grades I would never of gained a place for medicine but I have an offer for Nat Sci. From next year all universities will have access...
A-level isn't as hard as the question above anymore the hardest thing we have is STEP II and III, which are two exams i am dreading taking. Heres some papers: www.mathsexams.ukteachers.com/STEP/ [Broken]

quit safari, install the file you downloaded, then re-open safari and highlight the text and goto safari menu> services> Print selection.
A bit off topic but what is actually in "college algebra" and "pre-calculus" ?
Is college algebra the same as our A-level, but without the differentiation and integration? (Things like partial fractions, vector algebra, complex numbers, all trig identities, basic matrices, etc), and is...
You could try going on google and searching for spmething like "3D animation showreels" to view some peoples work.
The person you employ might not like cinema 4D they may use something else for there modeling/animation (such as maya, lightwave, 3DS, softimage etc). I don't know what you are...
There at Birmingham and Surrey right? out of the two I would probably choose Birmingham it's a more respected uni. But to be honest if you can get BBB at A2 you wouldn't have much problem getting into astrophysics at UCL or Manchester who both have very good astrophysics departments. When you...
Thank you for the info :smile:
I'v never had a intel computer before only PPC and I'm going to buy a new powerbook next year, what do you think of the intel portable roadmap? (multi-core stuff like memron). Is multi-core the way to go for laptops?
I did a locate .icns in terminal and found the folder icon. It's in: System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/GenericFolderIcon.icns
if you navigate to it in finder when you get to CoreTypes.bundle right click it and go to "show package contents" and it's in the resources...
I have visited both recently (I applied to both for undergraduate entry in 2006). They showed us round the departments and york seemed to be far superior for computational and theoretical physics.
Both universities have a collegiate system but Durham is in the city centre and York is a on a...
My school (left last year) gave everyone one and they wern't much good. They were really fragile, slow connecting to wifi, and no better than writing your notes on paper really. The only thing they were good for was when the teacher plugged there's into a projector so you could see what was...
If you wanted to go to a UK uni you would have to apply through UCAS:http://www.ucas.com" [Broken]
In the course search section go to "subject search" then look for mathematics or physics (or both).There is info on there like entry requirements, links to the departments website, etc.
I would still recommend perhaps getting MS office X (I can't believe I just said that), because it is very good, maybe better than the windows version.
X11 just gets annoying after a while, and the OSX openoffice distro isn't as good as the linux one.
Well it's hard to tell what the grade boundaries will be because they move depending on how difficult candidates found the exam. I didn't do the physics one last year only maths but i think a good guess would be, bronze about >40%, silver >55%, gold>70%, considering how hard these things are...
