How on earth did you manage that. I had about 30 pages for the write up and I got about 80% (on first attempt).

As for the exam tomorrow, it should be OK as long as I get enough sleep (been working at Skye Music Festival all weekend). Last exam, wohooo!

ah well after tomorrow i'm free so i guess i should be happy happy.gif

Yeah! that completetly through me to, I said a Time Scale >_< and employing a Project Leader lol I also wasn't expecting the three things in the ORD - I mucked that up too but apart from that it was okay, If the Pass for an A is 70% then im confident for 26 marks over that... So thats 26 marks to loose through simple mistakes.

The Trace Table question got me too.

How is that possible...? I used more than 30 pages in total for analysis, documentation and evaluation.

I thought there were some hard questions in the computer architecture section. I had no idea what packet switching was. Some questions were good as I had studied those areas in depth, e.g. RISC and CISC, multi-level feedback queues.

For the project management question, I wrote a data dictionary and PERT chart.

Did anyone do the sudoku puzzle? laugh.gif

I don't think it was too bad, I think I might have just got an A. I only had to guess about 4 question parts. Project Management is one of then (1, c) .

And did anyone else put alpha and beta testing for 2, c ("Name and describe two methods of locating errors in the puzzle software")?


As for Section II - AI
Not sure about my answers in question 10 (rule based expert system). I think I got most marks, but not sure.

11. a) Vision system - waltz algorithm ended up harder then I thought. definitely lost marks there.

But must marks are there.


@ Abyssinia - That sudoku puzzle got me right in AI mode when I was still in the Software Development part. I was thinking something horrible like make a search tree for it blink.gif laugh.gif

hmm i thought the trace table was okay-i got five passes which sounded about right but eh who knows

for 2c i think i wrote breakpoint and trace tools mellow.gif i think - my memory is majorly short term

oh and Abyssinia - i was just referring to the documentation and evaluation which now i think about it was closer to 5 pages than 4 though being the minimalist that i am i'm sure my overall writing was way less than 30 pages laugh.gif
ah well that explains why i lost so many marks for it huh

ps from the looks of it Abyssinia you seem to hav done good at the exact same bits as me happy.gif -i agree with the packet switching i remember reading it's used by parallel computers but not how it works .

oh well if i don't get an A i am so appealing for one wink.gif

I was stupid on the tracetable as I only put 4 passes forgetting that the code said lower had to be above upper before it terminated :'(! Ach Well Hopefully thats 4 marks still...

For Locating errors I put Breakpoints and Dry Runs tongue.gif

The Sudoku psuedocode wasn't that hard I though...

A or B hopefully biggrin.gif
