... I really ran out time in this exam. I think it was because I wanted to finish math probs and physics probs even though I didn't really have to focus on those so much... Actually later on I realized that I would have gotten A or B from e.g. the math compartment, if I did something like 2/3 from the exam questions in math. Something similar was apparently the case for physics compartment also. Because I had full homework credit from math and physics. We had an exam which had about four compartments and each required passing grade. Three hours time allocation in manner of your choosing. There was math, physics, media knowledge (text editing software and web design focuses) Programming and databases (python 3 and SQL and ER diagrams and relational model focuses) I did all the math probs. Then I did two easy physics probs. Working from start towards end in the exam paper. I had to choose like... the third choice and final choice for the last physics prob. I started doing the most difficult physics problem accidentally (?) and had to abandon it because I wasted too much time there. But then I started doing another easier choice for the third physics problem. I did that problem about 2/3 finished. Which should get partial credits. Then I realized I had to get some points from media knowledge two problems. I wrote some things which came to my mind about the two questions. Then I had like 30 minutes to do the programming and databases section. I think that databases and other stuff was the most difficult part for me personally. Programming focused questions were more manageable and I instantly realized what was required really... I did two of programming probs. I had like 15 minutes left Then I tried rushing some cheap points from SQL queries (which were quite difficult, IMO) It is possible I failed the programming and databases compartment, because those are the same compartment for us. There was not much chance in homework credit in this compartment in the exam. The media knowledge I probably passed. Now I just feel like a dumbass at this point, because I essentially wasted too much time on math and physics problems in the test. On one hand, I like to finish problems if I know how to do them. On the other hand I could have focused on the hardest parts (programming and databases) and hope to pass those compartments. Then, try to work on the easier math and physics problems. Anyway I just feel sad and angry embarrassed at the same time. Looks like I will have to retake that portion of the test which is about programming and databases.
