A challenge before the whole human race

So, he did it. They did it. I never thought they would, but now the free world (whatever that is) can finally move on. Hurray.

Tomorrow is my last undergraduate exam. In view of this, I shall share the three pieces of useful advice that I've picked up in my five years as an undergrad:

  1. If you want to be an economist, do not do a BCA at Victoria. Do a BA with econ and math majors. If math isn't your thing, you will never be an economist.
  2. At the start of every technical course, find out what kind of calculators will be allowed in the test and exam. Use this kind of calculator for everything throughout the course. It's no good being a whizz on a graphics calculator if you have to use a scientific one in the exam, and calculator errors are way at the bottom of the list of "valid excuses why I got a bad mark in that exam".
  3. If you get behind in your readings, don't stress out and don't try to catch up. Just go on reading the current material whenever you can. The stuff you missed is for study break, not for now.

That is all. I am now going to prepare for an exam, sit an exam, vote, go on holiday for a week, and start an awesome job. Next time I blog will probably be sometime in the early weeks of the awesome job.
