A break at last!
I finished with the third of my final exams today!
Thursday’s Final, Statistical Computing…I think I aced it. I feel like I’m too confident in that class, but what can I say? That’s how I feel.
Friday’s Final, Information Technology, I think I did okay on. Some questions were a bit tricky, but I did my best.
Saturday’s (today’s) Final, was the Corporate Finance one, and I -gasp- actually think I might have passed…! And hopefully, the professor curves the grades again (like he did for the two midterms)…fingers crossed!
Almost that time again.
Final exams are nearly here, and one can almost sense the silence on campus.
There are now more people stopping by my Corporate Finance lectures, well…today, anyway. The professor reviewed for the final today, and will do so some more on Thursday. Usually, there’s only a handful of people who actually attend lectures because they’re at 8 am. And no one likes to wake up early.
For me…I have an exam on Thursday (Statistical Computing), another on Friday (Information Technology), a third on Saturday (Corporate Finance), then lastly, one on next Friday (Forecasting, Time Series, and Regression).
However, because my Forecasting/Time-Series/Regression course has its final exam in two parts: an in-class part, and a take-home part, I’ll be staying all of next week until my last exam is done to finish the take-home part. This is because I don’t want to pay $60 some dollars to get the software myself. So, I have to stay, so I can use the school’s computer labs.
Do you remember…
when I posted about my three midterms?
I did post about that, didn’t I?
Well, anyway, after the midterms, I felt like I failed, aced, and did okay on them. Failed my finance midterm, aced my statistical computing midterm, and did okay on my time series regression midterm.
Turns out…I was..mostly right. I did fail my finance midterm, but the professor curved the scores by 30%, which is a MASSIVE amount. So I ended up getting about a 70% on the midterm…instead of my actual score of 40%. Abysmal…
I [mostly] aced my statistical computing midterm, but I noticed discrepancies in my score. The TA gave me more points than I deserved, and since I knew it would eat me alive if I didn’t mention it…I pointed out the error to my professor. She re-scored it, but gave me an extra point for honesty. Not as high a score as I initially was led to believe, but I do feel better knowing its my honest score.
Contrary to my thoughts, I DID ace my time series regression midterm! Yay for me! 99%, or 49.5/50. Only two people got 100%, but considering my class is only about 28 people, that’s not too bad.
