Roy Tucker BSc(Hons)
Recipient of 2009 Revell Research Systems Prize at
The University of Plymouth

Roy Tucker said: "Winning the Revell Research Systems prize was one of the highlights of my University degree. While it’s true that by the third year of a degree, you have an idea where your grade will be, you also know that you’re working with some of the brightest students around. To be told you’re the 'best all round student' in the group is an honour when you know the quality of student against which your being measured.

"Having experienced a degree, I’ve got to say that no-one will make it through without the support of their class mates; and each and every one of them will have their strengths and weaknesses. The best guide is that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, to make it through share your strengths and cover each other’s weaknesses. Right after a good group of friends you’ll need to PLAN!!!  It’s all in the planning and my advice to any student facing the last year of the degree would be:-
  1. Pick your final year project early (make it something that interests you);
  2. Select your optional modules to support your project;
  3. Look for opportunities to overlap the project work with the optional modules work.  If you get good results; for those assignments then you know that the code is good to port into the project;
  4. Don’t forget the core modules they are core for a reason apply what you learn here to your project."
