I thought it was okay. I was a bit stumped by that star question in the vectors question though... what did everybody put?

Martin (D_n_y) was your paper white today because my brother came home with a crumpled exam paper which was white instead of pink.

Did anyone else have a white exam paper?

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Thing is I saw a lot of people in other subjects at my school with white papers (eg Biology, although I got a pink paper in biology). I thought that perhaps they didn't have enough exam papers and had to photocopy some or something.

us too!!! took the invigilator AGES to explain it tho!!!
*NEW HIGHER* my teacher looked over my algorith when i got out (the part that i never like doing!!) and said it looked good - how chuffed was i?! lolol section I was easy, was so grateful for that. section II and III were harder...as expected!! what did you get for 18b? (not sure if i did it right!!) and 19a.

vectors i wrote that the line could be thicker, and the star could be enlarged
the "call by ref","call by value" etc questions really stumped me, but they always do!!! and part B of Section III hmmm....didnt write anything for 32...totally forgot about circuit switching!!
for the algorithm (Q21), do you think this is ok? (hope you dont mind me posting this!!)

let max hits = 0
loop hits()
if hits() > max hits
let max hits = hits()
else max hits = max hits
loop until hits() = hits(3)
End loop
print "The Max no of hits was "; max hits

hope u all found it an OK paper

xxx

ps. my paper was pink!!!

I thought section 1 and 2 were fine, but I did Multimedia in section 3 and thought it was really weird. I reckon I'll be lucky to get half marks for it. Two of the parts in the last question were very similar and confused me.

Also in section 2 I was a little confused be the wording of the Parameter passing questions.

Should be fine though.

I feel really confident... I thought todays exam went really well (old higher!) but didn't really enjoy Multimedia part (Section 3) but apart from that... great!

Hoping for A... possible band 3 B though but deffinetly one or the other biggrin.gif

There is a difference between code and algorithm.

That ^ is 100% code,

feel free to correct me, but im pretty sure thats wrong.

I would agree, though i would say its only 90% code, since it doesnt look that right.
