    I feel your pain homie. Got completely screwed over for the activity network drawing question, spent ages on the route inspection which was more complex than usual, then came across the gantt chart and scheduling question which takes forever especially when they are on separate pages!!

    I thought it was a nice paper. I ran out of time on the scheduling diagram, and may have made a few errors on the Linear Programming question due to time restraints.

    I thought the rest of the paper was remarkably straight forward though. With 5 minutes more I could've probably gotten 100 ums; hoping for at least 80 now considering the marks potentially missed.

    That question 2 though was a hard draw. Anyone else get 2 dummies going into the same node?

    That scheduling really screwed me over.

    And the last part to the last question, I realise now that I got the x and y integers on the objective line the wrong way round -_- Does anyone know if you get any follow-through marks so doing so.

    It was definitely a lot to do in the time given, what do you guys reckon the grade boundaries would be?

    Looking at low 60s for an A most likely - last year was 59 for an A , year before was like 58 or vice versa - thinking it's slightly higher but not by much. Comparing to the other years is a little treacherous because they only ditched January exams in 2014 so the others had smaller cohorts.

    Yes it was very hard to draw because the final arcs were to far away from each other, There was 1 dummy at the start from a to b I think and yeah I got 2 dummies going to the last node I think.
