Physics Practical Laboratory (3 hours per week) Chemistry Practical Laboratory (3 hours per week) Mathematics tutorials (1 hr per week for each module)
Small Group Tutorial and Tutorial Assignments MA22S2 and MA22S4 Mathematics Tutorials
(1 hour per week) Mathematics tutorials (1 hr per week for each module)
Assessment & Examinations
PY2N10 & PY2N20 All modules MA22S1, MA22S2, MA22S3 and MA22S4
The mark for each module is based in the following weighting of 60:25:10:5 for a final end of year exam, the practical laboratory work, the tutorial assignments, and the group study project. The mark for each module is based on a two hour annual examination in May.
There is a separate three hour annual examination in May for each of the two Physics modules.
Nanoscience & Advanced Materials Tutorials

These are special tutorials where we discuss nanoscience and materials science through the medium of special guest lectuers and reading assignments based on the themes of nanoscience and advanced materials. (0.5hr per week)
