nice, how did u go overall?
what are u expecting as ur raw mark?
Um yea not too bad. Some of the questions were a bit iffy about what they wanted us to answer with, but I sort of put in a bit and hoped it was what they were looking for. Diagrams etc was good. Definitions were good. Maybe 1-2 marks off the larger questions but the smaller ones ok.
85+ hopefully.
Yourself?

Have you guys considered whether Q12 is C?

because technically Kb is kilobits, not kilobytes...
My friend pointed this out to my after the test and i was like: "are you joking?" T.T

Isn't it still B though? Cause it's 60 bits for one record, 600,000 bits for 10,000 records. Divide it by 1000 to get kilobits, so it's 600kb.

And to think this was me just over a year ago. :eek:
Haha I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing your IPT notes! They were really helpful :)

Umm actually each record is 60bytes, each character is one byte :p

not it has to be B. there are a total of '60' in the size. 10 000 records means 60 per record so 60 *10 000 = 600 000 'units'
now if we assume these units are in bits, then to get to Kb like in the question we just divide by 1000, therefore 600 000/1000 = 600Kb = B
If you assume the 'units' are in bytes, we have to divide by 1000 to get to KB, so 600KB and then multiply by 8 to get to bits.
600*8 = 4800 which isn't any of the options.
Therefore it has to be B.

yep the answer is B. I rushed through the MC and didn't read the question properly until after i left the exam. i put C :(
