Thesis defence/viva examination on 04-11-2011. Passed!

Informed that written exams in May were both passed with Distinction (though I screwed the second one, so that's a shock).

Thesis was a bit rushed, but still managed a Distinction there. All-in-all, I will receive:

MSc Radiation Biology (with Distinction)


I also won the Gray-something prize for the year, so dey givez me a 100GBP book token in da futur. :3 WOOPIEE!!!! \o/

When the first student protest was due to happen, I had considered going. In fact, I had planned to make an appearance but declined only because I had class that day and my mentality was that I was not going to miss it considering I'd already paid for it. In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't go. Missing the first protest meant that when the next one was announced I'd already made the firm decision not to attend.

Oh, I love this turn of events.

Oh-ho, we're only hypothesizing raising fees to £5000/7000/9000 per year; just speculative ideas is all. We'll listen to the public, of course. Oh, look, a charity poll.

Charity research finds high impact of university costs, as college staff fear 'lost generation of learners'

A big rise in tuition fees would lead to a dramatic reduction in the number of teenagers aspiring to go to university, with those from poorer backgrounds the most likely to give up hope of getting a degree, research reveals today.

- Excerpt taken from the Guardian article, by Rachel Williams.

If fees were to rise to £7000, there would only be 45% of prospective students? Ah, of course we'll take that into account!

Oh whoopsie! We're planning to raise the tuition fees to £9000 per year. Can't be helped! :D

All that above was sarcasm by the way, encase you couldn't tell...

Quick update. :D As of the 8th of July 2010, will finally get my degree! My second semester results came in on the 26th June:

Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics: 59% (D'OH!)
Astrophysics: 65%

So erm... I actually bombed both exams rather badly, but in Astro other must have bombed worse than me for things to be weighted in my favour. Anyways! Regardless, I managed to obtain 71.[something]%, which is above the required 70% barrier needed for the classification of First. Sooooo... this means that I get MSci (1st Hons) Physics with Astrophysics.

AT LAAAAAAAAAAAASTTTTTTT~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!! O(≧▽≦)O ワーイ♪

Exams are over!!!

Apologies for neglect of all readers, replies, or comments until after the 26th of January. That is, assuming I have my laptop back by then (it's in the shop for a mend). Exams are looming - Lasers and Plasma physics, and I just don't have time. Sorry. (I also lack internet access)

I did manage to get in to uni early this morning to catch the House episode last night (6x11 'The Down Low'), so expect a squee-rant (it's both I tell you) sometime within the next couple of weeks.

Apparently I don't get to go on the group tour to CERN because all places have been filled up (with some MATHS students, might I add), because I didn't put my name down for it in time, BECAUSE I didn't know it was going on, BECAUSE I didn't actually get the e-mail they apparently sent around to everyone asking for names.

I hate getting fucked over on the basis of human/computational error.

MSci presentation on Wednesday afternoon. Assignment for Friday. Will catch up with f-list after everything is out of the way.

Apologies for necessary neglect until then!

Phoenix out.

Dear all,

F-list and public, especially everyone I owe massive replies to (including [ profile] bohemianbeauty and [ profile] geelady ), my sincere apologies for what must have, and still seem like a rude and abrupt absence. The situation is that about a fortnight before uni started up again, I had to knuckle down and get revising for back-to-term brain activation.
There goes the recreational reading time... )

About to start final year project. D: D: D:!!!!!!!!

Plasma jet hath broketh again! Dx

And yes, I know that grammar is awful - bear it, it's for comedic effect. Kinda like this one. (It's not meant to be offensive, honestly! I love Germany.)

So we were testing the newly built plasma jet last Friday, which necessitated disconnecting the old jet head because there's only one power supply and gas line. The new jet head wouldn't work for some reason, so we had to stick the old one back on. Except the old one doesn't work either now because when we were unplugging it the first time, one of the copper wires that provided the voltage difference across the head broke. So there was some soldering on Friday as well and hunting for the correct type of wire, but still to no avail, because for some reason the Forward and Reflected powers are the same whenever you plug the old jet head in, when in fact Reflected power needs to be about 10% of the Forward to generate the plasma sheath.

Oh dear.

Well... let's see if we can at least get it working again today... I doubt there'll be much time for experimentation.

Essay for Synoptic Physics class. Finished and proofed at 01.50 in the morning. Don't be surprised if there are a cacophony of mistakes in here...

Quantum Mechanics and Relativity: 71%
Atomic and Molecular: 80%
Medical Physics: 72%

Whoot!! 8D

C-programming section of Professional Skills module: 80%


And also, I'm still not used to the new timetable, thus as I am typing this I have 3 hours to kill from arriving too early. Silly me.

It's oveeeeeeeeeeeeer~~~ @o@

No more exams..............!! *collapses*

Just got back home from Quantum Mechanics and Relativity - now to wait a few weeks and see how much I bungled up. ^^;;

Blarghlksfla... This is the typed out version of a hand-written essay I wrote for Quantum Mechanics class at uni. Believe it or not, the hand-written version took less time. D8 I'm sticking this on because it will hopefully explain some very interesting aspects of Physics to you without going into too much lingo. That is, you can all impress your friends by understanding and being able to explain to them what that paradox of Schodinger's Cat really pertains to. :3
