I'm not actually sure how well I did on this paper yet, hence another Phoenix post-mortem to stop me trying to work it out in my head all the way home. It was a bit frustrating; all of the questions I could answer ended up having last parts which I could probably explain to someone in a handwavy fashion but couldn't actually get right whilst writing down.
Question-by-Question randomness ) Conclusion: Not quite as lousy as I thought, and still right on the border between 2.1 and 2.2 in general.
...brought to you from the Phoenix Room, so that I can stop it spinning around in my head for the entire half-hour walk home.

Considering my dire predictions of doom for this exam, it didn't actually go all that badly, I think; I'm fairly sure I got at least half marks, which is entirely adequate for my worst paper.
Post-Mortem! )

As I confidently predicted, today's paper went fine. However, I still feel rather like I cheated somehow, because it only went fine because I revised the Exact Correct Thing To Revise this morning, which I feel is almost certainly the effect of the people who are praying for me... credit should also go to [livejournal.com profile] tienelle who explained my Data Structures and Algorithms course to me far better than the notes or the textbook managed (or, indeed, my supervisor, who suffered from English Not First Language problems).
An extensive post-mortem follows, of course )
I should probably do some last-minute revision for the next few papers, since today's last-minute revision worked so well, but first - Spod!
I survived this morning's Progress Test; here, have an exam post-mortem.
