On the positive side of it, being a third year student is somehow, hmm, fantastic. At least most of the articles in tce (the chemical engineer) magazine suddenly make sense to me (in other words, I did learn something from lectures, which is a good news).
And oh, this is more fascinating – have you ever wondered, the way I did, when we learnt about catalysts years ago in Form Four? I did wonder how catalyst actually helps (to be more sophisticated – helps to increase the rate of reaction, by lowering the activation energy) without being consumed in a reaction, but now I have a whole module explaining the micro, tiny-weeny bits of how catalyst works. That IS interesting, if not exciting, and worth 10 credits (the fact that requires me to at least fake my excitement).
