You receive lectures, tutorials and have practicals to do. The lectures start of slow but soon get into harder material. The tutorials are the main form of actual learning, where you get feedback on work that has been handed in based of off the lectures taken the week before. The practicals (labs) vary from one week to the next, some are challenging in lab, some have complex post-labs, overall the labs can be challenging yet rewarding. The physics side requires four formal reports to be written throughout the year and the, there are 3 maths exams, 2 chemistry exams and 3 physics exams, the january exams give a taste of what the summer exams will be like. The content is extremely challenging and at times can be dull, however overall it is intriguing content. The feedback from tutors is extremely useful and whilst not always highly detailed, the tutorial will go through anywhere that you struggled. The chemistry labs themselves are extremely modern and are one of the best labs in the country, and the physics labs are a bit dated but not so much that nothing works.
