LA

One down one to go

Yesterday was the Chemistry exam. After I nearly didn't make it there on time due the massive train delays, it went better than some exams I have sat in the past, but not as good as I had hoped.

The exam was a mix of what had been on previous exams in slightly modified version and new stuff. Some of the new stuff, I didn't have a clue. Semi-conductors, history of chemistry, I must have skipped over that. I knew up front that I wasn't going to be able to memorize everything in the syllabus, so I worked mainly with exams from the last few years. It wasn't the worst strategy, but I missed on the short answer questions that covered most of the syllabus.

Still no rest for the wicked, the maths exam is next week. I'm taking the morning off, but I'm getting back to studying this afternoon.
