|09:48 pm - One Down...|
...And two to go. *sighs*
At least Psych is over and done with for this semester, anyway. But that gets rid of the slack multi-choice exam - now my exams will actually require effort.
The exam was...mixed. Some of the questions were pitifully easy, some I remember from study, and some I just looked at and went "What the?" (and then randomly guessed the answer by looking at the dots I'd filled in) The Quant Methods section was easy - which pretty much summed up the lectures. Boring, but easy. The fun stuff = not so easy.
I still managed to finish the questions with three-quarters of an hour left, which meant I took off rather ASAP. And I wasn't the first to leave - some took off ages before me. It was quite strange, actually.
And my table! It was all wobbly! It was driving me freaking MENTAL!
Oh, and a piece of advice: Cramming all morning, skipping lunch for more cramming, and then having a coffee right before the exam = really not a good idea. Though it did make things interesting, I must admit.
After the exam, I went and wandered past the Gelati place, where I had some of the BEST flavour EVER: LIME! And also the chocolate, which was quite good.
Eepies! Programming exam on Friday!
I made lemon-lime sorbet today. Mostly lemon, but it is lovely anyway. *gloats*
Good luck for Friday, and I am glad today went well.
PS if you happen to notice I am commenting extremely often and quickly, it is a procrastination strategy. I have no exams. Only essays. And 300 more words to write tonight...
Ooo, lemon-lime! Me wants...
Quant Methods is eeeevil.
Psych exams stay multiple choice (with a few short-answer questions depending on the subject) right until the end of third year, in my experience, so that's some future easiness guaranteed if you stick with the course (and they don't change it).
I've finished a three-hour Psych exam in an hour, checked it over, and left halfway through the three hours. It's not unusual for people to either a) be really smart (or think they are) and finish early or b) to go, make a token effort, and then leave early in despair.
The wobbly tables are clearly a plot by evil table demons to piss people off.
Good luck for the next one!
Quant Methods was easy. But then, before I developed my maths hate here at uni, I was a maths geek. I skipped a year of it at school, and so all the QM stuff I'd done in about Year 10. Seriuosly, my little sister does harder maths than QM.
And shall probably stick with Psych. I like it, I'm just a bit lazy when it comes to studying.
Ahhh. See, I did a BA with Psych, and although I'm okay at maths (did Methods in year 12; got either the highest or second-highest study score in the class, can't remember which), QM for some reason just messed with my head.
But the Psych is good, and if you're good at the maths, then you'll handle the QM in future years better than I did. 52% in Research Methods is the reason I'm not doing Psych Honours as we speak.
Well, I am seriously considering having Psych as my major for the Arts part of my double degree. I suppose it'll depend on how much I like English next semester (which is Creative Writing - I am dying of excitement!)
And compared to the evil Maths lectures, QM is seriously easy.
Creative Writing is AWESOME. Really really really awesome.
I know. And I have it next semester! *dances*
