Anyone starting S104 in Oct 12?
22 from Kent this is my first course of higher education since leaving school, studying Natural Science, anyone in a similar boat? :)
Yes.. Me! I haven't studied seriously since about 1995 so this is going to be a real chaallenge, though one I tend to enjoy.
Hiya aim starting s104 too..haven't done anything like it for ages..maths bit looks scary...
hi yer i am im amanda :) he its nice to find people doing this cource too xx
Which pathways did you both choose? i decided on broadbased-too indecisive thought i could try a bit of all parts of science and go from there. Dont know exactly where i want to end up though just know that science interests me!
Im sure you'll whizz through it jason!
helllooo I am too.
I'm so struggling to get to grips with this forum stuff and the course hasn't even started yet. Eurgh...
Forums get easier the more you use them, then they're difficult to step away from. Tell me off if you see me around here too much!
I am starting this course in Oct '12 as my first step back into studying for 19 years(!) I was feeling quite confident until I took the 'Are you ready for S104?' quiz and realised that things had changed quite a bit since I was at school! I am now panicking...alot but its nice to know there are other people in the same boat!
I know what you mean Tracie, it really is quite daunting isn't it. I keep taking the quiz, maybe once a week and bit by bit my scores are getting better. There is the e-maths book on here aswell that is really good. :-)
Yes I am too. It makes it a little less daunting finding people that are on the course too. I have decided on the Biology pathway, although I don't quite know were the different pathways come in to play?
Hi everyone im studying S104 starting in october having not done any studying in about 19 years thought it might be good to get some new skills the maths does look daunting i have started reading book 1 and answering some of the questions i chose the astonomy and planetary science pathway...
hope your all well.
I'm also starting this course in October - going down the earth sciences pathway.
I'm pretty excited, just trying to set up my study area - it's been a while! (nearly 10 years)
Hi people! Im starting the S104 in october too. Im from Suffolk, East Anglia.
Im doing the natrual science degree, keeping it broad based for the moment, likely to go towards Enviromental/ Earth science.
Good morning all,
I too am starting studying s104 in Oct. Picked the course without doing the relevant research (due to circumstances, did not have the time....) and now only really looking into it, looks like I managed to fluke it and pick a great course :).
Just to introduce myself, I am 24, I too, haven’t studied since first year of college, and looking forward to the challenges ahead. This module will hopefully be going towards the BSc (Hon) Secondary Education in Physics.
I now live in Wiltshire, so if anybody is from around that area, give me a message.
Good luck to everybody, sure everyone will do great!!
Hey. I'm Siobhan. Glad to see there's lots of other people starting. I have never done further education so will be interesting to see how this works out lol health sciences and psychology. Anybody else doing this?
I'm Sam, 34 and in London. Often do research for work but haven't studied properly for about 12 years, so getting back into the habit will be interesting.
I started stickying my wall planner today so I'd have the assessment dates and the rest of my plans in a visible place all the time. It'll either scare me into working or depress me into a stupor that there aren't more non-OU and non-work things on there!
I think the thing that's worrying me most is getting to grips with the language for assessments and further reading etc - esp since I want to tackle astronomy and geology in depth further down the line. Start us off slowly please!
Get, im starting s104 oct in Kent! Trying to get a good few of us kent lot on FB as study buddies! Add me www.facebook.com/yoghurtmxv and send me a message
Hello all. I`m Peter and I`m 41. This is my first module in the OU. Excited and nervous at the same time. The maths is much deeper than I am used too but what the heck...in for a penny, in for a pound!
Hi all I'm Josh and this is my first OU corse aswll so its a little scary but I cant wait to crack on with it aswell. =]
