Here are this semester’s exam results:
- Functional Programming 2: 49%
- Designing Algorithms: 62%
- Foundations of Artificial Intelligence: 71%
AI was the one I spent the least amount of effort on, so getting a first in it is pretty surprising. Even more surprising though is the third for Funky 2, especially as I feel as if I’ve been eating and sleeping Haskell the last few months (my project involves it). Mind you, Dr Sharp (the director of teaching in the CS dept, and incidentally also the lecturer for that module) says that kind of mark, close to a boundary, might get revised upwards. And anyway, it was a truly evil exam :)
Incidentally, the piece of paper I picked up from the office had a mark on it for Computer Graphics 2, which I didn’t take (wasn’t even enrolled for it), and it didn’t have a mark for Funky 2. It took me about half an hour to sort this out, but apparently there was a glitch with Dr Sharp’s mail merge which gave the wrong module code and title, though the mark and the actual records were correct. He eventually printed me a new piece of paper with the correct words on it.
On a totally unrelated note, I just remembered something I found out over the holiday: apparently Prof Thimbleby used to go to the same church as my cousins.
