The student pilot conducted a solo check in order to complete a second solo circuit lesson. The student dropped the instructor off and taxied back towards runway 11R for this solo flight, which authorized him to conduct three circuits followed by a full stop landing. All sequences in the circuit appeared normal until landing. On landing, the aircraft bounced twice and on the final touch down, the nose wheel collapsed, the propeller hit the runway and the aircraft ran off the runway onto the grass.
