Maths went OK -- I think...

The AS-level maths exam (1½ hours) is safely out of the way. Once I opened the exam paper and managed to calm my mind, I saw that it was entirely doable and I've given it my best shot. It's likely I've made stupid slips because of having to hurry hurry hurry to get it done in the time, but I'm confident I've done enough to pass and I don't think my hope that I might get a grade C (like I did when I took A-level maths at school over 40 years ago) is too ridiculous.

I nearly messed up the Chinese Postman algorithm, but saw my mistake at the last moment and corrected it. I did mess up the Prim's algorithm and had to have three goes at it, though I may have salvaged it at the last moment. But the Critical Path analysis was fine and I even managed to draw the Gantt chart. Similarly the Dijkstra's algorithm was OK. I didn't quite finish a few things, but they only counted for an odd mark or two, so overall it was fun in a masochistic kind of way. Results will be out in due course, around late July or August, I think. I'll let you know how I did.

And now it's back to the 3000 word essay on Monsters of Men for the Children's Literature course, but not today. My brain deserves a rest. :)
