    Good work there, thanks. AlthougI haven't had time to look at the db question properly, if a teacher can be employed more than once (and therefore have more than one contract) then contract shouldn't be in the teacher table, teacher should be in the contract table instead. The wording of the question was ambiguous though (does a module use only one skill? Can that skill only ever be used in one module? Can a teacher have more than one skill? etc. etc.)
    I genuinely don't know. I really hated the way that question was worded - so many possibilities :/

    Thank you so much! Though i think question 6 is wrong? Shouldn't Khan be on the right of Jarvis as K comes after J in the alphabet? if I'm wrong i look like an idiot. XDAlso question 13, the answer you've given is only 7 bits, the actual answer should be 8 bits!Also question 15, it states "If see 00000100and correct conversion to -5" - should that not be 00000101?Also i believe question 7 was actually 2 marks

    I expected them to be a little higher if I'm honest, maybe 84 for an A, so I'm pretty happy with them, guess we will find out yourself?

    I'm really pleased. 95 for 130 UMS is great. Also the coursework boundaries are good too! Hoping for 70 UMS in that

    Well done I got an A. The A* would have been nice but I only needed a B so I'm very pleased - good luck with everything in the future, looks like you have a bright one!

    Does anyone know if the examiner reports are anywhere online? Would be nice to see the comments about the exam, especially the Teacher, Skills, Modules whatever else question!!

    Hey! University is going great, just very... very tiring, haha. Practically finished for this semester now, just got one lecture on Monday then that's it. How about everyone else?
