An opal (public transport) card was found in one of the exam rooms. If this is yours, please visit the CSE student office. It will be there by Friday afternoon.
This is a reminder that the GSOE9210 mid-term test is scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday September 21). The exam will start at 9:30am. Please be there by 9am and give yourself extra travel time to account for possible delays (transport, etc.).
Please remember to bring your student ID and a 2B pencil, plus any other allowed materials. Check the course website for details.
Before coming to the exam please check your student ID to work out which room you're in (also available on the course website) and head straight to that room. You will only be allowed to sit the exam in the designated room.
A reminder that you must not have your phone on you during the exam. Phones must be switched off (not silent) and remain in your bag at all times. Bags will be left either inside the room, at the front, or just outside the room. Please follow the exam staff's instructions on the day in this regard.
I have added a weekly consultation time; for details see the Timetable item on the course menu on the left. Consultations are open to all and completely free of charge. You may come to see me to discuss any course topic. Students will be served on a first come, first served basis.
There will be no consultations during the week of the mid-term test (week 9).
I will be releasing a sample mid-term test later today. I suggest you attempt it under exam conditions first (ie, try to do it in one hour) to get exam practice. Then, afterwards, spend more time, if required.
The paper is available at Exercises>Week 7.
I will not release solutions until after next week's class. This is intentional. In the mean time, there are often ways to check your answers for correctness/consistency. You can also compare answers with your peers; that is what the forum is for.
The mid-term test is scheduled for the class of September 21; that is, the usual class time in week 9. Please be there before 9am. Note that you will not be allowed into the exam until after this time. Please do not wait inside the room, and follow the instructions of the exam staff.
The test will only include material up to and including week 6.
The format will be multiple choice. The duration will be one (1) hour. The exam is worth 30% of the total mark for the course.
You will be only be allowed to take into the exam blank pages for working out: one blank page of graph paper, and a blank page for writing. You must bring with you a 2B pencil to record your answers in the answer sheet provided. You will not be allowed to take into the exam any notes or reference material. You must turn off your mobile phone and leave it in your bag throughout the exam. All paper you take into the exam you must submit for marking; you will not be allowed to retain any working paper you take into the test with you, even materials you haven't used. Please ensure you have your Student ID card with you. You may not be allowed to sit the test without it.
The exam will be held in the Law building (Map reference F8). Below are listed the rooms and the Student ID ranges for that room. Check which range (between the Start and End numbers) your Student ID is in to work out which room you should attend. If you go to the wrong room you will not be allowed to sit the exam.
