Just got my results, and I passed EVERYTHING! Even Electronic Systems and Signals – I got 40% in that thanks to the labs.
German got 70% – no surprise there!
Methods of Mathematical Physics got 44.5% [(42 + 47)/2] – could have gone better, but at least I passed.
Wave Optics: 67%
Nuclear & Plasma Physics: 54%
Thermal Physics and Materials: 45%
Computational Physics: 65%
Quantum Physics: 55%
I’m a little surprised about Computational Physics being lower than Wave Optics: one of the reasons I passed Wave Optics was because I was wearing Polaroid sunglasses while hiking one day, and I happened to see Kylemore Lough at just the right angle for my glasses to filter the reflected sunlight in one direction, but not the other – so that’s how I understand polarisation, and it just happened to come up in the exam. 🙂
Anyway, I’m going for a pint now.
