No.
I don't do IT but I'm excited that the first exam is over. I'm so happy for you that you've got one out of the way before everyone else. You've got English tomorrow.

How was the blood flow?

I thought it was really straightforward in the Industry section, and I didn't have to bullshit too much. Equity is the question I'm least confident about, I'm pretty sure I repeated myself.

Multimedia was so very easy, though the scanners threw some people. The one instance where I felt glad that I'd looked at the syllabus.

hey. IT Timber & Furniture was relatively easy except for the question on equity which seemed to throw most out a bit.

very tight squeeze into 1.5 hour exam

Electronics was alright. I only had trouble in the question where you have to work out voltage drops. I think I messed up my working out massively lol.

The Industrial Tech part minus the equity question was pretty easy.

GL in English tomorow! :D

Industrial Tech - Timber and Furniture was all right. Alot more of industry base questions than i thought. The equity question seemed to get everyone. Anyone else find that 1.5 hrs just didnt do it for them? Another 15 mins would of really been helpful :)

Multimedia was alright. Not too hard, not too easy.
The old exam ladies were a bit grumpy and creepy when they start watching you.

Haha

yeah most of my class messed up the equity question, i think it might refer to the assets of a business, either that or they mispelt equality which would have made much more sense. apart fom that it was a reasonable exam, another 10mins would have been helpful

Equity is the name given to the set of legal principles, in countries following the English common law tradition (see English law), which supplement strict rules of law where their application would operate harshly, so as to achieve what is sometimes referred to as "natural justice." It is often confusingly contrasted with "law," which in this context refers to "statutory law" (the laws enacted by Parliament), and "case law" (the principles established by judges when they decide cases).


ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo crap

The question as I understood it refered to Equal Employment Opportunity, you had to talk about how the new structure had to be fair to everyone and not biased.

That's the only thing that makes sense given the (largely crap) syllabus and the (often poorly worded) past papers.
