Hi all, this thread is mainly aimed at postgrads. I'm doing my undergrad degree in theoretical physics, my question is this; how many hours of independent study did you do while an undergrad? I've been getting good scores so far, but have only been averaging about an hour a day outside contact hours. Is it worth aiming to get super high marks on all modules or is it a case of a first is a first is a first. I hear they often want to know your module scores when you apply for a PhD. I remember my tutor (we get assigned a member of academic staff as a mentor of sorts) told me how he used to work every weekday till 10pm. Also, my degree has a lab component in the first two years only. It's pencil and paper from there on in. Would this be a major problem if I decided to pursue an experimental PhD? Thanks.
