    Hey guys! I'm just wondering how everyone fond the exam today! I know I mucked up both of the equation questions, but I got an A* in the coursework and understood most of the other questions, so hopefully I'm alright!

    It went horribly. I'm really REALLY annoyed at myself because I knew so much, loved Electronics but screwed up the exam. I was hoping for an A* in Electronics but there's no gaddamn way that's gonna happen.

    At the moment, I hate myself for this and for my dreadful performance in Monday's Lit exam.

    Sounds like were in the same boat, If you did the same exam as me, then I didn't leave enough time for the 47 marker, but hopefully still got a decent mark!

    And I was also hoping for and A*, but you can't win them all!
    There were some weird questions in the exam, for example:
    Name Three Uses OF CAD in creating a Bulb
    and I answered: Design the circuit, Design the PCB and create the PCB :")
    Hopefully that was right!
    Don't get your head down though, because we both got the same coursework grade, and isn't not as if we didn't get over 50% in the exam which will easily make the grade a B or even an A!
    Good luck with exams!
