Semester Review

Wow. It’s been a very long time since I sat down to do this (sorry, fans!). In the meantime I have had quite an eventful few months, starting with the week following my last blog, when my computer decided to die on me. After that, it wasn’t long until I departed for a ski trip with the university snow sports club. Continue reading →

Exam Period

The exam period has been over for a couple of weeks, and everyone is starting to get back into the swing of things (which is why I am writing this). All in all, it didn’t go too badly, although the timetable for the first week was a bit of a nightmare. Who wants an exam at 9.30am on the first day of the exam window? The second semester has finally kicked into gear after the introductory lectures, and several pieces of lab work have now been set in several modules. Continue reading →

The Exams Story

The Exams Story Firstly, exams were tough. It is hard to find any MSc student (at least it's true for Software Engineering and Web Technology) who would disagree with this statement. However, having said that, I must remind you guys that we were told we need provide “sufficient evidence of background reading”. That’s where the real story begins! From my personal point of view, these exams were slightly different than those I had taken in my undergraduate study. Continue reading →

Exam Time!

Mayday, Mayday, Mayday You probably know that it is an emergency call and I hope you have only heard it in movies. Actually, it is the best way to describe the current situation! Yes, Exams - the hottest topic in university at the moment. Whether it's classroom, labs, library, halls, cafeteria, SUSU shops, sports centre, Uni-link buses, university road, bus-stops etc (don’t know about toilets), you see people talking about exams.

Network Issues over Christmas

OK, I know it's been absolutely AGES since I've last updated this. Two months and a bit. It's a disgrace, I know and I'm terribly sorry. I've been busy. I was probably busy doing stuff other than work, but nonetheless, faffing is still an activity :P At least we've got loads more bloggers to fill in the gap this time around. I can't believe how much the ECS student blogging community has grown and they're writing some pretty good stuff as well. Continue reading →

No Santa Outfit Yet, There’s Maths to be Learnt

Christmas is getting nearer, but I can’t don my false beard and Father Christmas outfit just yet. There are still several coursework deadlines to be met before Christmas, along with several more tests in the Maths modules. These add up to a considerable amount of work, and there will not be much relaxing until they are completed. Tickets have gone on sale for the ECS Christmas party, which takes place on the 8th December. Continue reading →

Exam Results – What a Result!

I just got my exam results and I did waaayyy better than I would've imagined, thank God :D The thing is, I was quite a mess right before the exams. I was so emotionally unstable that I got to the point where I didn't care about what would happen anymore. My exams were getting closer but it wasn't sinking in and all I wanted to do was hide in my dream world. This wasn't helping me at all. So I sought help. First, I went to see my tutor.

Exams Are Over

Now EXAMS ARE OVER! Wheeeeeeeeeee :D A couple of weeks ago we had a short talk on relationships. It was run by Eric Cooke (a.k.a. The Legend) and Sarah Cove from Zepler Reception. We covered so many topics, including how you should learn to love yourself. Eric brought out this book with a bright yellow smiley face plastered on it and read some interesting quotes from it.

Awaiting Exam Results – May Come Out on My Brithday

Time sure flies. I got my previous semester's exam results last month. I always seem to get my Semester 1 results on or around my birthday. It's kind of scary; if the results are good, I would definitely feel like celebrating, but if they're not, it will just ruin my special day. This year, thank God, my birthday celebrations went without a hitch ;) The Students' Union held their elections last month as well. It's funny how all the candidates I voted for LOST. Again.

Exams Schedule Puts Killer Subjects Last

Exams. It's the time when you start reassuring your parents that you will ace them because you've been working hard all this while. *cough* One thing that amazes me is how my exam schedule would always put my killer subjects last. My schedule would start off with relatively easier papers first before building up to a somewhat climatic ending. And strangely enough, the last few papers would have at least a 2-day gap before them, giving me ample time to do any last-minute revision. Continue reading →
