Today I formally graduated as a student from NUS! :D

While I didn't have a lot of time to take a lot of photos, and it was really crowded there, I was able to get a photo taken with my parents before the ceremony started. I was also able to pose together with quite a few of my friends for photos as well, and I hope to receive them soon. :)

By the way, the music they played was the Triumphal March from "Aida", but Pomp and Circumstance is a song that's also played pretty often during graduation ceremonies. :)

Here's one of the photos, if you're interested.

This is a gown, because I say it is, not a dress! )

(yes, it should probably be "graduate" but I want to be different! :P)

I got a B for Science of Music and for my HYP, and a S grade for the other two modules I took which I chose to grade S/U. While it's not fantastic in itself (someone whom I know got an A- for her HYP), it's still pretty good because at the least it maintained my average in the 2nd lower range. It would have been a shame if I'd dropped to a third class or worse.

As far as I know, the ceremony is on the 12th of July which will be interesting if I'm in the army by then. Speaking of which, I haven't heard anything on that front at all. Perhaps I should go check...

In other news, it seems that the family desktop computer is overdue for an upgrade/replacement. The hard drive died while I was overseas and during that time I got a lot of calls and text messages about it. At the moment I'm considering assembling one myself but I don't want to be responsible for it all the time, especially when I'm not around. I hope I can recover everything from it, as otherwise we'd have lost about 3 years' worth of e-mail and my sister'd have lost all her anime, music and artwork.

Appropriately enough, for my final semester, I'm only taking 3 modules and I intend to S/U 2 of them. I'm not sure which 2 though...

The timetable will be updated when I have my tutorial schedule (bidding starts tomorrow, I believe).

I still have to work on my HYP, so there really won't be a lot of time left over for non-academic things (after concerts, auditions and so on). For this week, I need to prepare a small presentation on which approach I want to follow...

I was, to put it mildly, surprised.

In gruesome detail )

I'm glad I did well for CS4254 and CS3255, though the CS4251 grade was a little surprising. The CS2281 grade takes the cake though. :)

My CAP went down by 0.02 points, but that doesn't make a lot of difference to me.

I need to start planning which modules to take for next semester, and rush my HYP (which hasn't gone anywhere much this month).

My last exam for this semester is on the 29th of November at 9 am for CS3255. I think this exam will be interesting, both in terms of preparation and the actual material that can be covered.

Today's exams were pretty interesting, especially the programming exam in the morning. I had a lot of fun writing code, and I hope it was correct. :P

The exam in the afternoon on project management was interesting in a different way as almost nothing of what we had studied for came out, except in small places. A lot of the questions were also worded trickily and sometimes needed to be read more than twice to be fully understood.

But at least there wasn't a lot of statistics.
nyankoframe: (Default)
So after all those swap requests, tutorials and other things, here's how it looks:

- nothing

- CS4254 lecture from 10 am to 12 pm

- CS3255 tutorial from 9 am to 10 am
- CS4251 lecture from 10 am to 12 pm

- CS3255 lecture from 10 am to 12 pm
- CS4251 consultation from 2 pm to 2:30 pm

- CS2106 lab from 10 am to 12 pm
- CS2281 lab from 2 pm to 3 pm
- CS2281 lecture from 4 pm to 6 pm

CS4254 tutorials are held every fortnight, and more details will be made available as and when I get them.

The major question mark so far is where and which CS2106 labs I'll be assigned to. I should check that out soon...

Good news

I got my TA assignment (CS2106 - operating systems, if anyone's curious) for this semester. And I'm getting paid for it. :P

On the flip side, it means I'm going to be even busier and have to work a lot harder. It doesn't really help that people are already saying I'm hardworking just because I was walking around today with two textbooks.

It's a pretty new service, and actually helps you to build your timetable by highlighting potential clashes for tutorials / labs / recitations.

So, barring any further exceptions / additions (notably, I believe, CS4251 and 4254), here goes:

Module Code : CS3255 [1 point]

Module Code : CS4251 [825 points]

Edit: increased bid for CS4251 and CS4254 to 100 1000 and 1500 points respectively

Read more... )
nyankoframe: (Default)
non-major modules taken so far )

So I need to take 4 MC more of breadth (any suggestions?), 610 MC for UE (possibly CS2281 + CS2261 + another 4 MC module), 1 level 3000 module (CS3255), 2 level 4000 modules (CS4254 + CS4251?), my HYP assuming that this doesn't apply to my intake ) and at least 1 semester of TA duty.

Edit: 22 - 12 = 10, not 6

Read more... )

I think that given the circumstances, it's somewhat expected, and at least I'm happy that I didn't do badly for stats. It probably means that I have no chance of really improving my CAP though. This semester can't compare to the last in terms of SAP (semester average point), but here are some statistics anyway:

SAP through the ages )

What you've all been waiting for! :P

CS3254 (Information Security Management): April 25th (Mon), 5 pm - 7 pm @ PGP (open-book)
CS4265 (Advanced Topics in E-Commerce): April 27th (Wed), 1 pm - 3 pm @ S16 SR1 (open-book)
ST2334 (Probability and Statistics): April 27th (Wed), 5 pm - 7 pm @ LT 24 / 25 (one side of an A4 page, some tables provided for normal, t-, F-, gamma, chi-squared and other distributions) (As it turned out, tables were provided only for the normal, t- and chi-squared distributions.)
CS4252 (Control, Audit and Security of IS): April 29th (Fri), 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm @ S16 SR1 (open-book)
CS3221 (Advanced Operating Systems): May 5th (Thu), 9 am - 11 am @ S16 SR1 (open-book)

I suspect cl, among other people, will be *very* happy with it. =D

The timetable )
nyankoframe: (Default)
After about 1 hour of sitting through the CS3260 lecture, I decided that it isn't for me, and as such I dropped it. Instead, I will be taking ST2334 (Probability and Statistics). Also, the thought of 8 hours of lectures non-stop doesn't appeal much to me. :P

So my schedule now looks like this:

10 am - 12 pm : CS3254 lecture (LT 33)
12 pm - 2 pm : CS4265 lecture (S16/SR1)
4 pm - 6 pm : CS3221 lecture (LT 34)

12 pm - 2 pm : ST2334 lecture (?)

8 am - 10 am : CS4252 lecture (S16/SR1)

12 pm - 2 pm : ST2334 lecture (?)

Tutorials will probably be on Tuesdays and Thursdays / Fridays.
nyankoframe: (Default)
CS3254 lecture - 10 am to 12 pm
CS4265 lecture - 12 pm to 2 pm
CS3260 lecture - 2 pm to 4 pm
CS3221 lecture - 4 pm to 6 pm

CS4252 lecture - 8 am to 10 am

I'm wondering if I should drop CS3221, as it is not a requirement for my major, and the thought of spending 8 hours in lectures doesn't really appeal to me. Then again, it is an area I'm somewhat interested in (operating systems)...
nyankoframe: (Default)
CS3260 and ST2334 both have the same exam date, and as 3260 is only offered in the second semester, I will have to postpone taking ST2334 until the following semester... And it seems I will only be taking 3 modules...

nyankoframe: (Default)
My last exam was today, and I think I should be able to score well for it. We'll have to wait and see...

... as the results will be out on December 25th at 9 am. ?!!!
nyankoframe: (Default)
2004/2005, Semester 2 )

2005/2006, Semester 1 )

Most likely, semester 2 of 2005/2006 will be devoted to my HYP and thus I will try to take as few modules as possible during that semester.
