#4131 The 2004 Physics Exam

Posted by porsch1909 on 05 June 2004 - 09:35 AM in Physics

i dont think those are full article but the chem was described as difficult too and i think said that it will differentiate between the top and bottom candidate.



#3902 Discuss your answers...

Posted by porsch1909 on 03 June 2004 - 02:41 PM in Chemistry

a difficult paper. the cut off should come down from last years 76% because i think we can all agree it was more difficult. i put the sulpuric acid going to the electrolysis lol. i put it to the neutralisation one first then changed it. touch and go if i get an A i think. if the cut off is lower then im okay i think.



#3890 What do you expect to get?

Posted by porsch1909 on 03 June 2004 - 09:18 AM in Chemistry

the chemical shift one was simple.

the first one you just read out the data book, the second one was propyne (not prop-1-yne cause that dont exist everybody)

and the third one had two lines.


i got 76% for the prelim, 80% for the written part and i foudn that really really difficult i think feindish compared to past papers. i think every year we have a difficult paper like that, last year it was credit math(even though i got a 1 1 for that)

hopefully i might have scraped and A if not ill presuade the teacher to appeal even though she say i cant appeal for an A with that result......i ask why???

nice one



#3685 What do you expect to get?

Posted by porsch1909 on 01 June 2004 - 02:54 PM in Mathematics

i thought it was more difficult than last year except the last question in last year.



#3684 How did you find it

Posted by porsch1909 on 01 June 2004 - 02:50 PM in Computing

i thought the Prolog question in AI was hard. the first AI question that is.



#3683 The 2004 Physics Exam

Posted by porsch1909 on 01 June 2004 - 02:49 PM in Physics

i thought general SG was the worst. why did they have MC in the SG general.



#3655 How did you find the exam?

Posted by porsch1909 on 01 June 2004 - 11:16 AM in English

the reason that they have such specific questions for poetry is very valid. the fact that a person spends 2-3 months studying a play or prose but for me it takes a week to study a poem and get an 18/25(an A) it is completly unfair for a person to get 18/100 marks (18%)with one weeks work. it also doesnt show much knowledge jsut revising a poem.

i answered a question during the year

choose a poem that at first glance seems an insignificant incident
show how the writer develops this incident and makes apparent the wider significance.


int he exam there was

choose a poem in which a chance encounter or a seemingly unimportnat inciden aquire increased significance by the end of the poem
show how the poet's development of the encounter or incident leads you to a deeper understanding of the poems's theme.


that was a beaty but i never answered it. IMO scrap the stupid mass media and language section and poetry and give more prose and drama



#3653 The answers to section one HERE.

Posted by porsch1909 on 01 June 2004 - 10:59 AM in Computing

i didnt put checksum for the data integrity one i just put error checking.

and i am pretty positive that as long as you give a good reason wether ti increases or decreases system performanceyoull get the mark.

are these your answers or official teacher answers.



#3610 Your Thoughts on the 2004 exam!

QUOTE (aaa @ May 31 2004, 06:57 PM)
hey porsch!
i got 65% for my course work ,wat % do i then need to get an A.?? lets say the passing mark this is for an A is 70..
unsure.gif

since you got under 70% for the coursework then you need more than 70% to get an A!!!! i think about 72% should work out at 70 for an A i think.

lets see: -

suppose the whole thing is out of 100 (its not i dont think)

30% is coursework that is 30 marks

you have 65% of those 30 = 19.5

so you have 19.5/100 so far

70% of 100 = 70 of course

70-19.5 = 50.5

50.5/70 *100 = 72%

i need 40/70 = 57%


see how working hard at coursework pays off people, next year if you take AH computing then coursework is 50%!!!

the number that i have quoted the exam out of are wrong but it will work for any number i think you will find. all i know is that the exam is 70% of the course and the coursework is 30%



#3573 The 2004 Maths Exam

Posted by porsch1909 on 31 May 2004 - 05:38 PM in Mathematics

most of my year failed the first prelim and i got 70% which was B!!!! shocking

then in the second one i did the same.....but both prelim where A B prelims and the exam was A B C.

the cut off will not go above 75% plus a percentage point maybe.


where the extra 20 marks for working or more questions, how can you put more working than is required thats just stupid come on!!!

i think working is stupid, as long as you get the answer you should get full credit, unless you cheat of course.

in my second prelim i got the answer to = 2 but was told the way i got the answer was unmathematical......wtf does that mean....i got the answer. i didnt recognize the polynomial and i should have done some synthetic division. to which i replied that synthetic division isnt real math either. its not accepted in england.


synthetic guys think about it...



#3571 The 2004 Physics Exam

Posted by porsch1909 on 31 May 2004 - 05:18 PM in Physics

i ahte physics. my dad has a PhD in the subject so dont tell him. i foudn taht relatviley difficult. i think i might have scrapped and A i hope so all depends on the cut off and marking sheme. i got 68% for the prelim.



#3566 Your Thoughts on the 2004 exam!

Posted by porsch1909 on 31 May 2004 - 04:58 PM in Computing

Its my first post...how exciting.

i thought it was more difficult than last year.

the data integrity question i put error checking none fo the checksum or parity check rubbish.

someone said globular variable i think erm.....i think your getting mixed up with you bio or chem with globular proteins lol, global variable are variables whos value can be used in any procedure, or module, whatever you want to call it.

the ProLog question was hard, i never knew some beetle where cannabil lol.

all in all with my full marks for coursework i need 57% For and a if it 70% cut off and 62% if its a 75% cut off, so not too many worries.
