Today hasn't been overly eventful really, apart from doing lots of useful but boring stuff like dishes and laundry. We went out after lunch to deliver the cds to the buyer. This was successfully accomplished much to my relief! While we were out we went and picked up some groceries at Somerfield in Bebington Village. After dinner, my time seem to have been equally divided between trying to set up horizontal menus for the smirks website for Ian, changing page titles on Steve's site, finding pictures of clowns for Margaret and working my way through 20 A'level physics questions to check David's homework. It's been a l-o-n-g time since I did A'level physics... but I can still remember most of it - sigh!!

OMG A level physics!?! I can't recall anything I did in Bursary physics. I must have been on another planet when I chose that subject! Well, I know I was influenced by my friend, we did mostly the same subjects. But at Bursary level, I know we split over Biology and Applied Maths, French and Chemistry, so I wonder why I stuck with Physics.. although I think I admired the marking then, that you could do all the working and not get the right answer but get marks for choosing the right formula. I liked that attitude!

I didn't enjoy A'level physics much, I didn't find it hard, and I got an okay grade in the exams, but I definitely wouldn't have decribed it as fascinating!

I do think that what you say about the way they mark questions is right though, because, not only in physics and maths, but in life as a whole, often it is not the final solution to a problem which is the most important thing, but the way we arrive there is just as important, sometime more so!!!
