Re: Holy Shit

I did reader writer. For multiple choice the person I wrote for got 5 A's, 4 B's, 3 C's and 3 D's - if that's any indication. Oh, 4 A's in a row at the end i.e. questions 12-15.

Re: Holy Shit

Agreed, easy :D I was, I finished, checked everything twice and left within 2 hours.

I'm only troubled by one thing. In Pharmaceuticals, I couldn't remember the name of the scientist who "discovered" penicillium notatum. I remembered it starts with F, realized I wouldn't remember, and spent ages (trying not to laugh) thinking of names. I kept thinking of Gustave Flaubert, the author, and Nicholas Flamel from Harry Potter. I settled on Flamel. Just found out it's Fleming. Ahaha, dammit.

Re: Holy Shit

Yeah i'm pretty happy with that exam!
Only one question in disasters which i wasn't too happy about... The one with the investigation to do with wind direction and air pressure i think it was.

But overall was an easy exam :)

Re: Holy Shit

It apears the only difficult questions were the options and they will be what sets apart most of the marks.

I almost laughed at the binary multiple choice question....

Re: Holy Shit

I considered it pretty easy, except the fact of forgetting the biomaterials used in artificial valves. ><'

Re: Holy Shit

UHMWPE is joints, not artificial valves. If you wrote that in the exam (unless I'm mistaken) you'll get the examiner with a "wtf" face and a big red x to show his expression.

1011 is 11 in binary.

1011

Wherever there is a one add taht number, so there is an 8 a 2 and a 1 = 11.
