    Drinking during exam?

    Just read the rules, they say you're not allowed to drink (water) during the exam, unless under approved supervision. What the hell does that mean? We can't drink? We gotta call a supervisor to supervise drinking? Even if it takes like a second, we gotta like what, put up our hand, get someone...

    Found a possible bug in the system

    Does anyone know that if your unipass is really long (mine was 16 characters), then although (most?) other services will work, myUNSW won't? (Says invalid login, etc). :uhoh: I've sent the IT department an email about it.

    UNSW On-Campus Internet

    In regards to UNSW Campus Accommodation, the internet apparently costs 3 cents a megabyte which means I'd be paying over $600 a month, with my internet usage. Well that's pretty ridiculous, I mean, 3rd world countries probably have cheaper or similarly priced internet, and seriously...I don't...

    Actual Error in Question 23 Algorith

    Actual Error in Question 23 Algorithm In the CheckPrime sub, THEN j=j+i Is actually meant to be: THEN j=j+1 It astounds me that BoS let this through, it confused me for a good 2-3 mins. Good thing I still had a ton of time to spare.

    The Upcoming Examination

    Any last tips, etc? Seeing as how I failed IPT MC, ima do the following: - Read every MC minimum of 2 times, preferably 3, or more if it's confusing. Also, when you get the 5 mins reading time, I generally fly through the stuff quickly if at all, and start on the MC straight away and...

    Mod Exp Decay - im doin it wrong

    i) Easy stuff - 5 second job. ii) Has me confused. The surrounding temp is -40 and the initial temp is 24 degrees, so the equation is: T = -40 + 24.e^kt At t=5, T=19, so working k out gives the result k = ln (59/24)/5 Which is actually a positive number. But that shouldn't be, since this is...

    Exact Answers vs Decimals

    If you get an answer which is a log to the base e of something, or has a log e in it somewhere, is it best to leave it in exact form or state it's decimal approximation? And if so to how many places? And would you have marks deducted if you do both?
