Confidence in high speed

Four hours after the test was over...

With the kind of unfailing lecturer diligence that usually occurs in fairy stories, Dr Metrics also posted the individual grades in Gradebook at the same time. How do you mark 10 midterm papers in four hours? Especially on a Saturday night? Clearly I should be calling this lecturer Dr Supermetrics.

My posted grade of 92% puts me in the majority group, and keeps me on a sound A average for the first half. This material won't be examined again, so that's 50% of the course grade well in the bag already.

The first two test questions were deliberately structured to be easy - proofs where each key step was described in the question - so I'd expect that all our lost marks were on the more analytical questions at the end.

Heh, Gradebook sounds like a take-off of Facebook. Social networking based on your marks? (-;

Congrats on the grade anyway.
