I am currently at kings college london physics department and have found the biggest reason i am having problems is because when the lecturers speak they dont speak clear and concisely and they usually have a foreign accent and stress there syalubuls incorrectly.This coupled with the fact of bad lighting in lectures and bad seating. I thought the reason physics was so hard was because i was dumb I have found out though recently that the reason i am finding it so hard was simply because they made the lectures boring.Yes they were saying all the material but the way of teaching is very bad and they put you off. Comparing kings to M.I.T is ridiculous and i would strongly suggest top unis in america for science as they dont make it so dull when it is really fascinating. Listening richard feynman also is a good way of inspiring u However i have found not go to lectures and doing the work myself more inspiring than the uni itself. This should not be!!!!
