Thanks all

I'm tempted to say easy, but anything is easy compared to my screwing up 4u math yesterday, so I went with moderate:mad1:

I thought it wasn't too bad, but some of the questions were very odd. The last question of 25 threw me a bit. Also division using twos complement, I never did that :|

Hopefully 90+... but probably 85 or something... I figure my max is about 96 cause of randomness of some.

Easy. Easier than Physics. The only thing is it seemed to drag on for ages, perhaps given that it went till 5pm.

I reckon I did pretty well. Wasnt the easiest exam I've ever done for software design but wasnt hard either. Just required lots of writing. I dont like exams that require lots of writing :p Question 24 was good, could have been much harder. However I was suprised at how general or simple some questions were. For example describing how the flowchart worked, anyone could do that... it gave you the bloody answer.

for the hardware topic, part b ii, could you only use the OR/NOT/AND Gates because i used a XOR gate for sensors b and c and then used that output along with sensor a (in an and gate).

Would have been a lot easier if I wasn't a diabetic that kept having hypoglycemic episodes every 5 minutes...:burn:

Doesn't matter, I can appeal anyway. I thought it was a pretty easy test - just had troubles with that.

I did - I get maximum 20 minutes every paper for "remedial action" against hypos if I need them. When you go over the 20 minutes (like I did today), you can either stop doing the paper and appeal, or continue doing the paper and appeal. I chose the second option.

It's just impossible to get back into the right frame of mind for an exam after you've taken 3 time-outs which involve feeling incredibly spaced out and woozy. :mad1:

I thought it was a moderatly easy test. No big suprises (well except that context diagram or watever!), hoping for a high Band 5 to Band 6 after this test.

Isn't it just a dataflow diagram with alot more information on it?

The exact opposite? A context diagram shouldn't contain much information.. it's very basic..
