    How did you guys find this paper?

    I feel like it was supposed to be an easy paper, except I managed to forget absolutely everything as soon as I picked up the pen. It was full of the "I know that I know this but I can't remember what I know" feeling... perhaps it's just me.

    For that question about the energy sources, I didn't even know how to start going about it. Was I supposed to calculate something with the numbers for power? How was I going to prove what the right choice was? I ended up rambling on until I filled 3/4 of the space (though I was rushing the paper so much by that point i had barely legible, ridiculously large sized handwriting, and most of what I wrote was repeating itself or gibberish)

    The last question took me a while to get my head around, and I didn't have that time to spend - I started the question when there was 5 minutes left. I think I ended up writing the wrong answer.

    I suppose the paper could've been worse, though having all my least favourite topics in one (even though they were expected to show up) was still pretty awful.
