ch*n*m*n. huh. is that offensive? i literally thought it was another way of saying 'man from china'. the new zealand chinese community has complained about the exam and is seeking an answer to questions about how these exams are written.

which is good becuase people complained last year that the calculus exam had a lot of questions that didn't require calculus to work out the answer and the grading schedule wasn't giving marks to the right answer by legitimate method you had to divine their precise way of getting to the answer because... well because... the graders were too stupid to grade it properly one can only suppose.

but the real point is that they were incapable of writing good questions for the calculus examination.

i know how the complainers feel. at university, too, there are many many books with many many good questions where the questions are fair and good test of understanding of quality contents. and repeatedly and reliably and presistently lecturers try and re-invent the wheel on multi-choice and inevitably and invariably end up doing stupid things like having two answers that it could be (that are equally good - sometimes a toss up between 'all of the above' and 'none of the above' depending on how precisely they are talking) and calling that a 'high end distinguisher'

of course it is mostly likely probably all to mask the fact that some kids are properly coached through the grading schedules prior to examination.
