Yeah, I left about 20 minutes early.

For those doing TPS, what did people write for that question comparing buying your ticket online apposed to seeing a travel agent? I was absolutely stumped, so I just bullshitted something like cheaper deals through an agent, but quicker and easier over thing internet. Something like that...

lol a guy in my class did the wrong elective because we didn't get taught multimedia anyway. :\ he did DSS. Will he still get marked for that?

hmm yeah im not a hundred percent how that will work either they will take the best two or they take the first two, ive heard conflicting stories... but if he only did 2 electives they will mark both he prob wont get much for DSS's if you's didnt do it but, unless he's an arsy bastard lol

collecting/analysing/storing and receiving all those 6 mark questions were a bI**#&*&*# i hated them!

just rambled on about some cra8**76

O well, the rest of the exam was OK

hopefully people would have failed at those 6 markers, so they will scale the exam up.

I forgot to design that flight thing. In TPS.

It was so rushed, I was behind and I had to finish multimedia, I only had 25 mins to Multimedia....
I truly am pissed at myself, for falling behind so much in this exam.

I wrote the most outrageous thing,

about tagging pedo's and minor shocking them if they come close to a school or park....I refered the minor shock to the car slowing down. lols I had no idea.

The trial I had was brutal, I came second and only got 50%. That's how much people don't care about IPT. LOL

I actually prefered the independent trial paper that we did. It was hard but i did really good unlike this one which was easy but i did bad (somehow i just know)

Same as most people,, Struggled to fit in the time frame.
I found my self rushing about halfway through my first option topic
40 minutes was no where near enough time for those 2 questions IMO


As for the GPS alternative, i wrote about a traffic monitoring system, which re routes if theres traffic.

Be nice if a 6mark question wasn't to do with tasks involved in the information processes.. was starting to get anoying


Edit: Probably should mention i filled every book right up.. no big gaps or anything
i used 2 booklets for each option topic too.
