Practical Vivas

I got asked the reason why PSK is better than ASK, FSK. I answered with two points. The viva man (invigilator) kept staring at me, expecting more. Didn't meet his expectations there, and finally he asked the mathematical expression of PSK. I answered with 'no' and my turn was over.

Self Note #1: DO NOT SIT MUM. Talk irrelevant, but god damn it, keep talking. 

Self Note #2: Don't know something? Admit it. But the whole point of the viva is, that in those 2-5 minutes he has with you, to convince him or give him the impression that you know your stuff.


In my CG Viva, i ended up talking about line clipping for a LOOOONG time. And the viva man sat there distinctly bored. He was too carefree and my answer was too unclear. Don't know if talking on and on was a good thing there.

Practical Exams

This is something I've been doing a lot recently. In my attempt to properly finish my experiments, I fail to hear what the teachers say. Note to self for all Physics-type practical exams.

In my one and a half years of experience in College, I've noticed that minors (mid-semester exams) affects the internal marks much more than its 10% allocation. A student's sincerity and capability is determined by the first test, and depending on the teacher, the internals are put accordingly.

Now, its not definite. There are teachers who actually pay attention to each of the 60 students in that class and graded us based on other criteria as well, but usually, the minor marks says it all. 

Conclusion:Score in Minors!
