Dennis has completed his computer science final exam (last Thursday), chemistry final exam (yesterday), and English final exam (today). Dennis is currently studying for his math final exam (tomorrow) and his biology final exam (next Monday). Dennis just realized he’s more than half way done final exams. Yay! Dennis goes back to study.
Nearly a month has passed from my first day at UBC. Maybe it’s this MWF/TuTh schedule thing that makes time pass by so much faster. “Time flies when you’re having fun,” as Mr. Picard used to say, but the past month hasn’t been all fun; rather, it has been a lot of textbook reading (obviously), and a lot of note-taking (duh), and a lot of walking between buildings (evil 10 minute break to walk from Dempster Pavilion [computer science lecture] to the Mathematics building [roughly 900m apart + intelligently moving obstacles]). One month into the start of the year and Continue Reading
…it would be to read the data/information booklet. The math mock exam was interesting. Six questions in one hour. Seems easy enough…only if I had the sense to read the information booklet, which contained some formulae which I could have used on the exam. I looked at the booklet after the exam ended, which was very stupid of me. Anyway, all mock exams completed! Yay! Now back to weeks of classes! Yay!
I completed the Physics and English mock exams today. Mr. Barois gave us the May 2005 IB exam to do (surprise surprise), and certain people during the break were previewing the answers to the Paper 2 on their laptop computer. In my opinion, that just completely defeats the purpose of a mock exam though, cheating in that way, not just having an unfair advantage over everyone else. The Paper 1 part was fine I guess, since it involved more of the theory than doing calculations. However, I screwed up the Paper 2, and left many blank. English was fine, in Continue Reading
Well it’s the day before IB mock exams start, and well…I’m still screwed. At least I have no exams on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. There’s so much to study for in so little time. One and a half years x 6 courses. Monday: Physics / English Tuesday: None for me Wednesday: None for me / Geography Thursday: Chemistry / French Friday: Math Anyway back to studying…
