    I'm at Uni doing a maths+computer science joint honours degree, and this exam period I've had/have 6 exams (I have 6, and have done 5 already)

    So far I've done: database systems (was 'easy' enough), human computer interaction (bit boring but also 'easy' enough), series and transforms (Worse. Exam. Ever. Epic fail ftl!!), complex analysis (think I done okay on it, nothing too good though), software engineering (easy-ish but boring as heck)

    Then I've got an exam called "Systems design" (which is also very boring) next Wednesday.

    Then 4 months off though, so it balances out :p

    Good luck in your upcoming exams :) Out of interest, by "Design" do you mean "Product and design" (I done that at AS), or another exam?

    AS Critical Thinking, both exams now done. Chemistry Unit 1 done. Tommorow I've got Maths C1 and M1 and Thursday I've got Physics Unit 1 and Maths D1 and S1. After Half term I've then got unit 2 Chemistry, Physics 2 and Maths C2 on the same day. And Finally Maths FP1, thirteen days after everything else. :D

    2 down 3 to go for me, first (Structural engineering 3) was possibly the worst exam ever.

    Geotechnics 3 tomorrow could be just as bad though :(

    Yeah, its A level 'Product Design'. Its a fairly dull, but fairly easy way to get an A* at A level

    Hehe yep, I know what you mean. It's not all that interesting however they're fairly lenient with the marking.

    I had my fourth year uni exams recently. They started last Wednesday, and finished on Wednesday past.

    Last Wed - Professional Studies
    Last Fri - Engineering Science I
    Monday past - Software Development
    Wednesday past - Engineering Science II

    Only one (maybe two) more years of doing exams for me :clap:

    Then I get to decide whether to do a PhD or not :rolleyes: Methinks: no. Not now anyway. I've been in higher level education for way too long already. I might, maybe, consider it when I'm older.

    No. Tell us, what is in 2nd year physics? I'm slightly curious, and until you tell me otherwise I'm just going to assume it's like maths but easier (to annoy you, in order to give you a reason to tell us what you did).

    If that's anything like our professional studies (civil engineering at Bristol University) then ours was just coursework, what sort of stuff do you have to do?

    I'm sitting 6 modules in maths this June so I'll have 9 Maths modules in total before I start my A2 year. I also have 2 AS modules in each of Physics, Chemistry, Electronics and General Studies.

    I did Chemistry, Electronics and General Studies last week so I have about 11 to go. FML.

    I've already done 2 out of my 3 exams for my second year at Uni.

    First one was a Database Design and Implementation exam, which was pretty easy.
    And last week on Thursday, I had my AI & Modelling exam, which was also alright.
    ANd next week, on Wednesday I've got my C++ exam.

    On track for a 1st in my second year.
