that's the same with most comp sci courses at unsw

if you make a mistake you have to start again usually from scratch
thats messed up lol
You can't even debug it while writing code.

it's good in a way that it makes you actually think about your program but you go through at least 10 booklets and 3 pens by the end of the exam and it's to stop cheating/plagiarism etc

at uni you have to write it in C, C++, Java, python, etc
now that's not lame. Its kinda cool.

do you recommend that I get into the habit of not running code every few lines.

yes

try to get the logic of your program and then think about the code you wrote, does it make sense? is it neat formatting indenting etc etc

Are you sure it was move down / up (relative)? I interpreted it as what X/Y to move to (absolute), so 15/15, 30/15, 30/30 IIRC.

They didn't specify what representation for negative X/y. If it was relative, they would've included 'sign & modulus, two's complement', etc.

We'll wait until the pdfs are posted!
Requoting, what did everyone do? Relative or absolute?

If I got a band 6 raw would I ever find out? I'm not ranked first, so the first would get the top mark.
You will probably never know if you got a raw band 6 but when we get our hsc results (Not atar) on the 16th of december you WILL get your moderated exam mark, so if you got 85 raw depending on how they do it, could go up or down or stay the same etc. At least this is

I did absolute because I understood the X and Y values as X and Y values on a graph, so you put a point at 1,1 then move it to 2,2 by putting the new coordinates not just adding 1,1. Because obviously the data stream couldn't interpret a negative value.
