Well the exam's only 3 days away, how's everyone coping with the revision? For me, info systems is the most mind numbingly boring subjects to study for....well thats in my opinion anyway! I got this years prize for it tho, which is meant to act as an incentive to do well but i just cant seem to get the motivation to study for it, ah wells!

I still feel prepared though, the hypermedia unit has always been my strong point and the rest is basic general knowledge.

How's everyone elses feelings on the exam?
You'll never bring me down, cos' i'm so far above you...

I feel rubbish about exams in general. I got an endeavour and an award for 8 1s in S4 then didnt get anything last year as I got AAAAB instead of 5 As. I just dont have the motivation anymore.

I agree with Information Systems being really, really boring to study for. Going to do something today and tomorrow then hope for the best. A lot of it is just general knowledge and common sense, need to look over a lot of the database stuff though, re-learn all about entity relationship diagrams and crap like that.

I've not done particularly well in the coursework, so I cant really expect anymore than a C overall, with a good mark in the exam... Although to be honest, the end of the course is enough reward really, our teacher hasn't taught us since maybe November, so I'm not all that bothered if I fail, although I'm able to get an A in the actual exam, plus whatever marks I picked up on the assessments (got 10/30 for the database assessment, and assuming the expert system one is out of 30 as well, maybe got 15-20/30)

That gives me about 25-30/60, which means I'm not all that far away from a C as it is, so I should be on for a pass.

I think thats the stage of myself also. Except, didn't spend all day revising for it smile.gif

So the coursework only counts for 30? So basically, the two parts of coursework are just halfed, then added on to your final result in the exam?

I really, really hope that is the case, would mean I've got something like 10-15/30, plus probably something very decent in the exam, could probably end up with a B, which would be really, really funny, also very useful to me smile.gif

26/30 for your coursework is amazing! You would be hard pushed not to get a B for the exam then. You'll only need to score like 34/70 for it!

Does anyone know that it deffinately works in a /30 for the entire coursework? If so, I am very, very relieved.

Yup, they deffinately count for something. The more I think about it, the more I think its 30%. Which isn't so bad.

Each of the courseworks are out of 30, so I presume the marks are just halfed. I got 10/30 for the Info Org coursework, meaning I have 5/15, which considering I only did the written part of the whole thing isnt bad at all... and I think I got around 18/30 for the ES coursework, I'll go in and check tomorrow - So thats around 9/15. So in total I have just under half marks, which means I know I can pass tomorrow, considering my strong prelim and general knowledge that I should be able to achieve at least 45/70 tomorrow. That would leave me with something like a B, depending on what the pass mark is like for the exam. Although if I got a C, I'd be happy with that as well.

Yeah coursework is out of 30. If your project had 60 marks in it, then they scale that down to 30 and add the mark you get it in to the mark you get in the exam, which is out of 70.
