  • Exam and a2

    If you haven't watched the final live lecture recording, please do so asap. It contains important information and preparation advice for the exam. It also includes some information about a2.

    Exam preparation:

    Reviewing the exercises and lecture examples (and get familiar with the algorithms) is sufficient for the exam preparation.


    As mentioned at the above lecture, marking each a2 takes quite awhile (as we need to allocate enough real time to accommodate usr+sys time for each test, and it has totally 30 tests). We still aim to email you the results by early next week (or else will keep you informed). Meanwhile, if you would like to check / run those tests. You can do so by log into grieg, simply go inside the folder that contains your makefile and program source files and type: ~cs9319/a2/automark

    Note that the above automark script is provided for your reference. It only checks for output correctness. It does not include the checking of index file size, memory usages or running time (whilst these constraints are checked as separate processes during the actual marking).

    As we discussed previously, it includes: 1/3 small (identical to the provided sanity tests); 1/3 medium; and 1/3 large.

    Warning : if your program is slow, it may take a long time to run through all 30 tests.
