Sorry, I just gotta tell somebody right now!

No more school! Only thing left is 6 months of working on an awesome internship-project and a report about it, and I'm done!
I did good too! Our scale is weird: 03, 00, 02, 4, 7, 10, 12, 12 being the highest, and I don't know how, but I got out with a 10.3 average!!

Obviously I'm going for the Candidate in Games Design or something like that, but this is an AWESOME start on my venture! Cheesy Off to programming gaaaaaaames!

EDIT: This was supposed to be in Misc. forum... Sad

Advanced Placement Course. A sort of admission-course lasting 2½ years, which grants me permission to take the bachelor which is then 1½ year extra. It's heavy on programming, large systems and design-structures.

Wait.....AP classes are only in the US. How are taking it in Denmark? O_o

I took AP Computer Science 2 years ago (it was a 1 year course for us) and easily scored a 5 on the AP exam.
It's extremely easy Tongue

We have our own system up here. Converted to comply with ECTS points.

I think high school in general was just bad, grading wise. Roll Eyes If you do your homework satisfactory, you'll get an A.  persecutioncomplex If only it was that easy in Europe.
Atleast, that is my experience of it.

Scandinavian schools don't let you through just because you've memorized the material. There are many phases of exams per course here, and they provide a collective score. For this final semester, we had 3 weeks of school, 5 weeks to do a "software development" project, in which we had to deliver a fully running application, able to handle all aspects of voting for, choosing and administering the university's optional subjects using a database. It had to help administrators and students to choose subjects, and show them how many students fit a 2x2 set of subjects (primary and secondary choices), and grade them in 6 categories of happiness. Huge algorithms! And of course we had to write a 20 page report on the program we made simultaneously.

Then 6 weeks to write a 30 page assignment about all the different subjects discussed during the semester. These 2 reports and the final program and code is all evaluated, and you're given one score.

In the last 3 weeks of that project, we also had 3-week final-projects in both our optional subjects (mine were Android and C#), both with individual reports and running applications. It was a terrible 3 weeks. I barely had any sleep. I was like Neo, seeing code everywhere. God, I'm glad it's over! NOT easy...
