Did my HIST2606 exam today, got my INFS3200 (Advanced Database Systems) exam tomorrow.
Today's exam has to be my most blas? attempt at an exam in my whole academic life. I had most-likely passed the course already (see yesterday's post), but as i approach the completion of my degrees I seem to be less and less motivated to do exams.
I would have chalked this kind of attitude up to almost have finished my degrees, but the thing is that I do still do take assignments seriously. I dunno, it's just something with me and exams, I tend to not take them too seriously.
This exam today was unpleasant in many ways. I sorta focused my study on an aspect of the American Civil War that I was certain was going to be a question on the exam. This exam had 12 questions and we had to answer 3. I planned on doing a WWI question and a WWII question and do one on the American Civil War. I pretty well know both the World Wars, so all I mainly studied was stuff on the American Civil War (which btw is really quite interesting and fascinating).
I'm usually pretty good in anticipating these exam questions, but today i got it wrong. The Civil War question was something along the lines of: "Generals on both sides of the American Civil War aimed to emulate Napoleon and his strategies. In what sense, if any, were the strategies actually used in the civil war 'Napoleonic'?" Not even looking at Napoleon in my study, I was screwed for this question.
I ended up doing both WW questions, and for the third I chose the one about the American War of Independence.
It was even more unpleasant in that the guy on front of me had pretty excruciatingly severe body-odour, and when your sitting less than half a metre away from this guy you sorta want to hurry up and get out of there as fast as you can.
I've really got to say that my answers for all 3 questions that I put down were pretty sub-standard for me. Can you tell that i'm not taking my history courses too seriously?? (especially the ones that i've passed before the exam...)
