  1. Thanks to you all for the replies and sorry I've been away for a little while. It's the costing that it putting me off at the minute as well as the having the time to dedicate to it. We have a little one due anytime now so have been devoting al my time (and spare cash) to getting ready for her arrival. I think for the time being I am just going to try and source the text books and materials to read through (well if the little lady will allow me the time) until I can confidently say I can set aside the time to really focus on it.
  2. Sounds like a great time had by all. Congrats for putting on an obviously successful event guys.
  3. Thanks all for the responses. It's always good hearing the opinions of people who think similarly and who maybe are going through the same situation.
  4. That is a very valid point, I never really looked at it passed the fact that both were doing the papers. Thinking of it more, there is that point that was not mentioned in the segment that the child had previously been studying the subject material whereas the adult had not for some time.
  5. I am definitely going to go for it! Just waiting until baby is here (due December 8th) and settled into a routine with her and the Mrs then it's all stations go!
  6. Hi from a fellow North-Wester
  7. Don't get me wrong I am not discouraged by the idea of doing my degree, I think I was more just personal musings really. I am definitely going to start, and pass , my degree. I think I was searching more for other peoples opinions that have gone through a similar route to myself. Thanks everyone for the support, it's greatly appreciated.
  8. Hi all, I have a bit of a conundrum. I have been thinking for a while of signing up to study for a degree course in Maths and Physics through the Open University. It isn't something that I am just doing on a whim, I have been thinking about this for the last couple of years and is an area of great interest to me. So my conundrum. I heard a discussion on the radio the other day about GCSE results, obviously the usual for this time of year. There was a section where they gave an adult and their child two science and two maths papers. One was the last years paper and the other was the paper from when the adult was taking the exam in the mid 90's. The results were very surprising, the child found the old paper relatively easy and the adult found the newer paper almost impossible. Now, I know that times change and I remember sitting my GCSE's in 2001 and my parents being unable to help me with my revision because they found the material too advanced for them. I am now wondering whether it would be wise me beginning the degree at the minute or whether to spend a while first re-acquainting myself with first the GCSE aspect then moving on to going through the A-level modules before then going on to my degree? Has anyone else looked into or faced a similar dilemma at all?

    Hi Everyone

    I'm Jon, currently residing just outside of Manchester city centre. I've been a long time reader and watcher of everything astronomical so decided it is time to take up a more practical approach. So far I have a pair of cheap binoculars, picked up a cheap scope to practice with for the time being. Hoping to learn more and share when and what I can.
