optional exam…

had an “optional exam” today. If we wrote it, it would count for 40% and the end term for 60%. If we chose to bunk this, the end term would count for 100% of the course evaluation.

Initially thought of bunking this as I felt too lazy to mug. Announced this to the world. Half the class followed suit. Then, a friend came to me with doubts and i was able to solve them easily and decided to take up the paper. Think i’ve done pretty well.

And of course, as (he chose not to write the exam) was lamenting the other day, one question was a direct ripoff from last year’s paper. With only 1/2 numbers changed here or there. And this paper being set by the director of the institute!
