    What's an IGCSE?

    No exams for me, I'm thankfully past all that!

    Edit: I was looking to top-up my HNC to a degree this year, but I'm not able to do it without going to classes (can't do due to work commitments), so boo to that!

    Good luck to everyone else! Hope all goes well. :D

    Very funny :p
    The careers department proudly announced that previous graduates have gone onto Halfords, Travelodge and Pets At Home. There are good jobs, it's just finding them.

    Did anyone else find there A-Levels much tougher than their finals at uni? Granted I only had two exams when I did my finals due to cunning module selection and not needing to pass one of the modules (so I didn't sit the exam).

    But my point is, when it came to my finals it was the first time I felt confident I knew exactly what I needed to, which turned out to be a first in one exam and 3% shy in the other. Overall I was 1.2% off a first, was gutted at first, but since I've been working for 2 years I've found that not havin a first is often a benifit (deppending on the role of course, but when you are people facing/interacting with different departments, apparently people with 2.1s have better people skills) :D

    I found the degree a lot easier too - it's to do with specialising though. By the time you get to your degree you can pick and choose what you want to do and develop a specialty, whereas at A-level you have to be more general and write about topics which you may not be strong on. At University I only passed my first year Psychology unit because I was able to specialise on topics of Gestalt psychology and human perception. Everything else I sucked at.

    Microcomputer engineering I (practical), Java writen exam, Mathematics 1Q2, Energy Transport and Conversion, Electronic Circuit Design I, Electromagnetic Fields and Microcomputer Engineering 1 (Written Exam)

    EM fields has alot of us worried, the rest should go pretty well, I only need about 50% on each paper because the coursework marks were fairly good, which takes the pressure off! Best of luck everyone! :thumb:
