Once more into the breach

It was back today with Double Science Paper 1, co-incidentally the same one which was hastily rewritten after falling out the back of a van and to be honest, it showed.

The weirdest thing was the abundance of questions where all the facts would be given to you in bullet points, before asking the question. Example:

Here are some facts about the birth control pill
– The pill is 99% effective
– It does not protect against STDs

Name an advantage and disadvantage for the pill?

I mean – how can you get that wrong, unless you can’t read? To be fair there was a nice question on why giraffes haven’t evolved long necks to reach the leaves from tall trees, instead because males use them to fight and female giraffes think long necks are hot.

However, if my science teacher is reading this, I did get a Physics question wrong involved an equation about waves or something. Oops.

Tomorrow is a double whammy – 2 hours of ICT in the morning (easy but dull) and then Maths in the afternoon. It’s non-calculator so it should be slightly easier than the other but still a challenge… however, Maths is also the most satisfying exam to do if you get it right. Expect a tired Dalek to post tomorrow.

  1. Science paper sounds strange.

    Perhaps it’ll be like that on your other papers;
    Windows 2003 server works in the following ways:
    Q.Describe how a Windows 2003 server.

    What’s in your ICT exam?

    What’s in it? Some multiple choice questions (no kidding) – then a section based on a pre-released document we’ve all seen for months – and then finally some ‘random’ questions that all follow the same formula they have for years.

    "Describe 5 steps necessary to publish a website"

    "Describe 2 health and safety implications of giant cyborgs \ PCs"

    "Compare scanning in photos to a digital camera"

    Blah blah blah… it’s piss easy and you could pass it today.

  3. Sounds like a finish in half an hour and spend one and a half twiddling your fingers and advertising this site kinda thing!

    You know me too well!
