Exams are over

    Exams are over!!!!

    Hey all you students,

    How did your exams go this semester? I had 4 extremly hard exams this semester. I've never studied so hard in my life. But im happy about them, i feel i did good. (hopefully).

    Lets see i had a physics exam (electricity and magnetism). That was an elective course i took (yeah im crazy), the exam was a tricky one. I had Discrete Mathemeatics(which was the hardest one, lots of proofs), Linear algebra (it went ok) and an exam on Java which was the easiest one but still very hard.

    How did everyone elses exams go?

    Holidays!!! Yuppieee!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm in last year of high school. School's final exam will be held on 23rd February which includes everything that I learnt since september 2002.

    In March and April, I'll have public exams.
    30/3 Chinese Language and Culuture (CLC) (4.5 hours)
    31/3 CLC listening (1 hour)
    2/4 Use of English (UE) (4.5 hours)
    3/4 UE listening (1 hour)
    20/4 AL pure mathematics (6 hours)
    23/4 AL chemistry (6 hours)
    28/4 AL physics (6 hours)

    For us, Form 7 (upper six / grade 13) students in Hong Kong, Christmas holiday, Chinese New Year holiday and Easter holiday (3 long holidays) are holidays of studying . Whether we can enter good universities and to study the subjects that we want to study depend on the public exams.

    Books and notes have already been scattered everywhere in my room.

    On 28 April at 5pm, when the examinars say time's up, pens down, I'll put a full stop to high school education and enjoy my 4 months long summer holiday. :smile:

    Nothing sucks like having a final in the last time slot (6:10-8pm) on the last day of the week. But now it is all over, and I get to pack for my 13 hour drive home tomorrow (which goes right through the kill-zone in Ohio).

    I finished my exams a week ago and the last day was my hardest exam, philosophy. I pretty much bombed my computer science exam. Damn those recursive methods!

    Recursion can be a ***** sometimes, depending on the situation. But practice makes perfect even though recursion isn't the best way of coding, its just the best way mathematically.

    Out book even said that loops were better in terms of performance.

    Phew, im glad exams are finally over. I didn't realize Christmas was so soon this year, as I was so concerned about my exam days on thursday and friday. I havn't even gotten my relatives gifts yet.

    Goddamn... my exams are only starting January 13th, and they last al the way till January 31, a Saturday, grumble...

    KL Kam, I know the feeling of having to study during the holidays.

    I'll be expected to do:

    Analysis III (Hilbert-space, Fourier transform, ...)
    Algebra II (Ring, Module & representation theory)
    Theoretical physics I (EM and continium mechanics)
    EM & Solid State physics (christallography...)
    Astrophysics I (HR, easy models for stellar evolution...)
    Affine & Projective geometry

    And that's about it. What the hell am I doing here, I should be studying!

    Yes loops are better in terms of performance. My professor said that you can program anything without using recursion.
  12. Dec 21, 2003 #11
    Wow, thats one hell of a course load you have going there. If i was you i would camp out in the library. I guess your a physics major? My exams feel so easy now
    Good luck with all of them!

    Makes me wonder why we studied it for so long.

    oookay so im guessing ur all uni and collage students
    right? who like took maths and science courses etc

    does finishing your mock GCSE count?
    i did my last exam last week

    isn't there an inie person who's still in
    high school?
  16. Dec 22, 2003 #15
