Tweets and Results – A Post Exam Analysis – Part 2

I had a similar post sometime back, after the Level 4 Semester 1 Exams, when I twitted my in-time thoughts after each exam, and later posted an analysis on my thoughts with the results I got. This is just another similar post, but for the Level 4 Semester 2 Exams, which happens to be the final exam of my undergraduate course.
So nothing much here, just some crappy thoughts as always…

— EXAMS — Starts tomorrow….!

3:58 AM Feb 26th from web

So thats how everything ended…

Changes do Suck…!

(This is not to blame anyone, but felt like warning others who do study for semester exams at last-minute, like me…! Expect the unexpected…!)

I don’t normally hate changes, but when they come in the last moments I do feel they suck. This time it’s really true with the changes in the Final Semester Exam timetables at my University.

My final year final semester started in the last week of October 2008 and we were given a draft timetable dated October 18, 2008. It was a one which had all subjects evenly distributed along the one month duration of exams in February 2009. Later “they” decided to make changes to it due to “reasons” and notified the changed timetable to us on January 20. Though it a really crap timetable according to my set of subjects, its ok coz there was another 3 weeks left for last time study planning and exam preparations.

Now they have changed it again, on January 29, but we got to know about that on February 4. I can understand that there might be “reasons for changes”, but I feel this is not the “time” to make changes to timetables, just 5-6 days before the exams. (Yes, it not a big change, yet I’m totally screwed up)

I’d like to quote on of my batch mate saying,

“… I’m wondering if we are gonna go to write for a paper and be told that we will be answering a different paper that day :)”

For those who prepare for exams throughout the semester this aint gonna be a problem, but for those who don’t this is gonna affect big time, and I’m one of those.

Lets Face It…!!!

Tweets and Results – A Post Exam Analysis

Level 4 Semester 1 exams are now history and I have already posted my in-time thoughts sometime back in this blog. Now the results have arrived and just though of doing an analysis on what I have thought just after the exams (my Tweets) against the results I’ve got. I’ll say the conclusion in the beginning, thus those who don’t want to read this can skip.

Conclusions:

  • My estimations were wrong (less likely)
  • Examiners did some mistake (I’d say less likely)
  • Read and decide (Recommended)

Analysis:

Done with Exams: My Thoughs & The Twitter Way Back Machine

Its another semester that has ended with the last exam today. I was thinking atleast we have a two week vacation, but now it seems have to work on the final year project. So it going to be no big difference.

I was just Tweeting through out the semester exam, and here are some of my ‘real time’ thoughts of the exams. I could see how my mind was changing through out this period, and some crazy thoughts on my exams, papers, and questions.

Its interesting and I feel like this is a ‘way-back machine’ to my thoughts.
