If you are a student who has applied for special consideration during the final exam, you will receive an email this afternoon, advising your special need arrangements.
Good luck everyone, with your exams!
Sorry for the late notice. I have had to reschedule the consultation today (Thursday, 23 April to 2:00 - 3:00 pm) this afternoon.
Also, kindly note all the marks your labs, practical exams (incl. week 12 practice exam), assignments (1 & 2) should now be available. Assignments are worth 15 marks each. The labs will total to a maximum of 10 marks. All the practice exams will total to a maximum of 10 marks. If you think any of these marks are incorrectly recorded, kindly see me in the consultation today.
Sorry revision lecture was on Wednesday. As of today, it is only exam consultations. The revision lecture was recorded on Wednesday.
We have picked up a couple of mistakes in the comments in pokedex.h for e.g.,
// If the Pokedex is empty, this function should print an appropriate // error message and exit the program. Pokemon get_current_pokemon(Pokedex pokedex);
The above is incorrect. If your pokedex is empty, then get_current_pokemon should display an error message and return to the command prompt "Enter command:" and not exit the program. Similarly, if the specified type is INVALID_TYPE, the program should print an error message and not exit the program.
Always,Please use the reference implementation as a guide to test all behaviour. The auto tests will test behaviour consistent with the reference implementation.
A reminder again, assignment 2 is extended to Sunday, 10:00 pm.
Happy Easter everyone!
Kindly note, deadline for assignment 2 has been extended to Sunday, 12th April, 22:00 pm.
