Well I plan on doing maths with physics at uni so naturally I've done a fair amount of reading on quantum mechanics, so the majority of the stuff in the first unit I've came across before so I'm not finding it that difficult. Still, I completely understand that this would be a difficult unit for a biologist (notice how everyone is either a biologist or a physicist - no one ever calls themselves a chemist tongue.gif) so I wouldn't worry about this too much. When it comes to organic chemistry, the biologists will probably find this easier than the physicists smile.gif

I found it fairly easy but I seem to be the exception. (Pwned the nab today.) Most people are finding it fairly difficult.
I'm an ex-physicist, current biologist. I quite miss physics, specially the amount of homework compared to biology.

From what we've done I think it's pretty easy, but I'm slightly alarmed that some of you ahve done the Unit 1 Nab already - we are starting on unit 2 and have just finished Phase Equilibria blink.gif

Do you not do the NAB as soon as you finish the topic? We had a double period today, finished the topic first period and done the NAB second period (I got 20/20, which was a pleasant surprise). We're moving onto unit 3 now, as we have unit 2 being taught to us one period a week (an ex-teacher at the school has to come in to teach us this part). I wouldn't worry too much, apparently our class is going relatively quickly (compared to recent classes at our school anyway) and by the sounds of it we're not any further ahead than your class.

I saw in the maths forum you had auditions (musical auditions I'm guessing). What were you auditioning for? How did you get on?

Don't worry. I think unit one is a half unit (just don't hold me to it). Whether it is or not, have you seen the size difference in the unit 1 and 2 scholar books? 2 is much thicker.
On a side note all my scholar books are annoying me, I can't get things into my locker.

I got 19/20 for my nab, the rest of the class weren't pleased, not my fault I had an unexpected free with someone from my class firing long chemistry words at my that I didn't have a clue what meant. (Moral of the story, don't try to learn too much for the nab)

yeah, unit one is half a unit (the investigation makes up the other half smile.gif )

I was auditioning as a choral scholar to read music at Magdalen Colleg, Oxford. I got a provisional offer depending on being offered an academic place, so I really need 3As, which I think will be hard... I've seen from your Itunes list that you're into Classical music... Do you like any modern stuff? You should add me : theoriginalspoon2000@hotmail.com
