I have friends at McGill in both major and honors streams in physics. On one hand, PHYS340 is a majors version of that course, and thus you didn't receive the best education you could have had. On the other hand, in physics, majors and honors courses differ not in difficulty but in the material coverage, with, obviously, honors students seeing more.
