    How did the paper go ? There were good number of repeat questions.
    Anyone remember the loop question answer ?
    I wrote Forever = True. Then, repeat until Forever = False

    For the assembly language question, I wrote 33 for the last question of part 1.
    Also, the last question had the answer in question itself.

    I can't really remember but Im sure I wrote random on last one. Do you remember the question ? If you do, I might recall the answers xD
    And Good to know that you wrote 33. It was too easy of a question and that had me thinking for 10-20 mins, if its that easy or I am doing something wrong :p

    the file A was customers monthly meter readings.
    file B had customer records & file C had passwords/IDs. I am not sure if I am mixing up A& B :p But the question was somewhat like this.
    xD same. I completed my paper so early, and spent the last 10-15 min on that question. I couldn't believe that question could be this simple :p

    Well I guess if you have backed up your statement for first one with proper justification, you can get the mark (this question was repeated, and in the previous years MS they allowed both serial & sequential!). And I guess they did mention to write different file organisations. You will lose 1 mark for the second one just.

    I am not really worried about the 1st and 3rd answer. But on second answer, I will probably get 0/3. I never noticed "different" file organisation.

    It was horrible. Not only for me but it was extremely unanticipated for most of the people in my centre
