Is she doing a Msc or a Bsc course?

She still looks good after being cleaned, despite being black. No sunroof, no heated front seats and now no air-con, but I still love my little car!

We had a '57 Renault Clio 1.5 dCi,it was black, had a sun roof, AC and very little else. It was my mum's favourite car to drive in her history of cars, and we took it up to just shy of 120k miles from brand new (with like 7 miles on the clock). We had to get rid of it as it was starting to make a variety of clunking noises and my parents decided that the car was going to get too expensive to run, with various bits needing replacing. So they replaced it three years ago with our '61 Yeti. Annoyingly, having just checked the MOT history website, our old Clio has clocked up just shy of 140k miles, and appears to still be in working order, as the latest MOT (June 2016) shows a pass with just one advisory item.

Well done, we need many more scientists, especially in Physics.
I'm looking to you to further research into and, hopefully application of, fusion.
Always be brave and stand your ground if you think you have discovered something that has been looked for.

Mini Bumblebee has decided not to do the Masters.

She is a mature student and didn't go down the conventional route to get to uni!

After doing her AS Levels, she stopped attending college. We didn't find out until the end of the Autumn term, when we received a letter from college asking if she would be continuing her studies, and informing us about her non-attendance for a few weeks!
She got a job, and bought a flat in Brighton at the age of 19.
Once she settled, she decided she would like to continue with her studies, so found a tutor and took some modules in Physics and Maths. She did a one year Foundation course at Sussex and was accepted onto the degree course. Most of her friends are taking the Masters, but mini BB decided not to. Her aim is to get a good degree, then a decent job so that she can upgrade to a house!

You should be proud of her. At least she is not at the other end of the scale. :)

The physicists in my wife's family aren't that weird and really contribute to our built world, mainly aircraft.
