So, no worries, I just like to keep the alphabetical order, later I’ll remember this way, what’s left. You know, I’ve started to study at the university in 2008, I was studying for 2 long years, then we (I mean me and the university) mutually started to hate each other. So basicaly after 2 years I haven’t got any courses done. Then I had some study-free years (not counting the things I’ve learnt at work, of course). Recently, in february 2014, I’ve got back to the university and continued my studies. Right now I’m in my 7th semester (and hopefully the last van for the BSc degree).
So far so good, I’ve 4 courses for this last semester and I hope that none of them will have such difficulties, as the worst I’ve done in last semester. There was a 2 phase exam, first a written, then an oral part (but only if the written was good enough). The topic was nearly 150 pages of formal written definitions, thesises, lemmas and you should learn them exactly character by character. Once I’ve answered a question right, and an s letter was circled, because the teacher tought, that I wrote an S instead of s. As you may know, I usually write printed letters, and in this case s and S look like the same, the only difference is in size. So my half page answer was right (except the letter s), and I’ve got only the quarter of the points for my answer. So if you don’t know everything exactly, you have no chance to pass. This time, after the check of the written part, three of us were asked to go to the dean’s office (the dean was officially the teacher), we had our oral exam there. When I was asked, I was quite happy, I was almost sure, that I’ll pass this time.
During the oral exam, I was the second in row. The first student started to present his knowledge, during his presentation, the dean asked some questions, and we could see, that the student had no idea about the meanings of tzhose questions. He has passed, but it was quite close. Then came my turn. I’ve written one and a half pages, and started to present it. After I was over half of a page, the dean started asking me too. He could see, that I understend him and I can answer his questions too, but I was sometimes a bit uncertain, so I’ve got a B, and my page hasn’t even been flipped and read by the dean. I still cannot believe I’ve made it!
So hopefully this is my last semester during the BSc phase, I’ve already annonced my thesis (which is about a web application I’ve written last year, but I’ve never finished it, now the time is here), and I’ve already sent my application for the MSc class. I’ve already started to finish my thesis application, I think there’s not much work left with the code itself. The worst part will be the documentation, I still hate writing those.
