Eve of Mid-year Exams

Posted May 25th, 2014 by

So tomorrow will mark the start of my Unit 1 exams…

The first one is English, and luckily the only exam I have on Monday. Hopefully I’ll be able to think of things to write for it. My second exam takes place on Wednesday, and is Chemistry, and I think I’m reasonably prepared for that. Also on Wednesday is Application Task Part 2 for Mathematical Methods 3&4. That, I’m a little more worried about, since last year’s one was so easy, they’ll probably make it really hard (or write it really badly, there’s hardly any difference to me).

On Thursday I have both exams for General Maths Advanced; three hours of examination… That should go okay I guess, I didn’t have a problem with the past two years’ exams. Also on Thursday is the Victorian School Music Festival, which means I’ll be out at Federation Square from 6:30pm and won’t be back until around 11:15pm. That doesn’t leave much time to sleep before my Physics exam 8:30am on Friday… Oh well, Physics is easy anyway.

The following Monday, I have an IT exam… I assume that I know everything that I need to for that exam, but I’ll have to brush up on my excel formula syntax.

That sums up the week and a bit ahead that makes up my exams. More blogging to come during the week.

Moving Host and Methods SAC

Posted May 14th, 2014 by

So a few days ago, I decided to purchase some proper hosting (ie. paid hosting). The website is now hosted in Sydney, meaning it loads nice as fast for me, and no longer has the weird limitations of the old free host. Ah, the joys of pages loading in an instant…

Today I had my second Mathematical Methods 3&4 SAC; this one on circular functions. It’s going to be worth twice as much as the first one (on which I got 100%). Unfortunately, it was extremely difficult, so full marks are probably out of reach this time around. I don’t like application tasks; they’re invariably poorly written with many mistakes and inconsistencies. They try to apply mathematical concepts to model so-called ‘real-life’ situations, but do so in a ridiculously unrealistic way.
