    hey arsey for q5) the bubble sort, your 7th pass is exactly the same as you 8th pass. is it necessary to show the 8th one? also what do you think of the grade boundaries? I'm thinking 67-68 for A.

    yes, you will lose a mark if you do not have it

    ALWAYS repeat the last pass, so you have two the same.

    You might know it is in order, but you need to do a final pass, so that the algorithm does.

    you should be fine with what you wrote, final (repeated) pass or a statement will do.

    Got everything right except wrote 2 12's instead of 1 and a 13 when doing my bubble sort, so will I just lose one for accuracy? And how will this affect the first fit decreasing 3 marker with this list?

    I calculated the lower bound fine at least.

    not sure, 60+ for an A.

    definitions are normally terribly answered, as will the dummy questions.

    I think the postie question will be a bloodbath too.

    LP was pretty kind.
