I have finished three years undergraduate course in maths in the UK and I am applying to do an MSc in maths.
The academic year was 26 weeks long and split into 2 semesters of equal length. we had exams at the end of each semester.This is fine but in each module, we were also given one, in some cases 2, assignments from each module. This meant that we were being examined every 3 weeks.
I think that this is wrong and that when studying maths, people should be given the opportunity to learn at their own pace and that the onslaught of assignments does not help. I feel I could have done so much better with just having the single exams at the end of the semester because it takes me so long to get my head around mathematical concepts.
If I state this on my personal statement, would it work in my favour, or would it make me look really stupid, slow and someone who is disorganized?
Looking at the majority of courses for masters, they only have a single exam which should work in my favour.
