How’s everyone feeling for the exam? I’ve done several practise papers and have lost the motivation to study more because reading notes is boring 😂

P.S. Completely forgot to mention these earlier, but also made some flashcards on Quizlet, here’s a folder for Computing https://quizlet.com/Kathleens-Notes/...g-science-2018

I'm the exact same aha, just going to redo past papers today and maybe do some last minute SQL syntax etc.

I guess we can just hope for the best tomorrow!

Thanks for making these quiz let things too

Basically been on my own for this because one of the computing teachers moved to another school in February and the other disappeared in March. Felt great about the coursework, so I only need about 60% or so on the actual exam paper.

Only exam that felt like it actually took the allocated time was English, and that was just because of the essay

I think it went pretty well, some of the JS and CSS questions were tricky but the rest was alright.

Thought that went well, Paper seemed alright and had loads of time to check over my answers. Couple of questions were weirdly worded, but not worrying about it as exams are finally done

I think it went alright, answered every question (don’t know if I answered it right though). Either way, I think I done well enough in my assignment to pull a decent grade

Exam went quite well, few questions here and there that tripped me up, but on the whole it was pretty good. We'll just have to see what happens on results day I guess

i leactured the sqa markers in my answer saying that most languages can have a variable that stores 200 records without being a array declared to be 200 long and therefore the question should be a one marker

syntax doesn't really matter as long as the intention is absolutely clear

I put 200 too because there are 200 entities.

I started at 199, because all the languages I use start at index 0.

However, they usually don't mark it wrong if you put 200. I may be incorrect though.
