Generally the 4th #BS1012 practical went well on Friday, still a bit pushed for time though. It's helped me to understand that I must work on being better prepared and organized and to also manage my time properly when it's limited and a large volume of work needs to be done. I hope to implement these actions ASAP.
The tutorial quiz for #BS1015 went well, another tangible way of checking how well as individuals we've covered the course. It's also helped me to realize I've got plenty of work to catch up on over Christmas before the exams hopefully.
I'm generally satisfied with my #BS1015 essay mark but have been made aware of the areas where I must improve on in future essays. This includes the use of Diagrams to illustrate key points and providing more appropriate information and references for supporting a point.
I've now thankfully learnt from todays consultation with my Tutorial Tutor for #BS1003 to not become heavily reliant on A-level notes and "just facts" for future essays and assignments. Evidence, experimenting and ofcourse references clearly play a major role too to hit the high marks.
Interesting Lecture today in Biochemistry #BS1015. I never knew that our bodies can metabolize (Catabolize) Muscle Proteins during periods of starvation. This might explain loss of weight during e.g Ramadhan (Fasting period) for a Muslim person like myself, not to mention irrational muscle pains then too.
Does anyone know if there are any Past examination papers available for #BS1003 (Cell and Developmental Biology) or any other relevant/Useful revision material. I'm yet to buy a book for it, got all the Lecture notes, work etc.. Campbell and Reece OR Brooker??
The Mock exam/Practice Biochemistry paper today was rather hard I think, but definitely a useful way to check how much we've learnt as individuals and what potential problems needs to be identified earlier rather than later in order to hopefully perfect the real Exam in January.
Very useful lectures today indeed for Biochemistry, Study and Communication skills and Chemistry for Biologists: Found the way in which Prof Cundliffe gave us a review of the "Genetic code" learnt at A-level a helpful way of making the more advanced undergraduate level work on Biochemistry a bit easier to pick up on and absorb. Dr Jon Scott gave...
