Spanish exam

I had my spanish exam this friday. The exam consisted of 3 parts. First one a presentation of an optional subject, but related to Spain somehow. I had choosen War of the Pacific. Secondly un unknown text and thirdly two questions to a known text. The presentation went pretty well, I had went through it many times at home, so I could do it without looking much at my cue-cards. Which seems to be one of my strengths, at both this and the danish exam they said I was good at not looking too much at my notes. The two other parts didn't went so well I thought, was kinda hard to remember the words I wanted to use. Anyway it couldn't have gone totally bad, as I got a 9.

Saving the best for last

Had my oral danish exam this tuesday. I wasn't happy for getting this exam (you don't have exam in all subjects) as it's the subject where I get the lowest grade, for oral that is. I had before this been at four oral danish exams, from 9th grade till now, and in average I haven't passed.

Quick introduction to danish grade system:
Possible grades: 00 - 03 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 13
You need 6 to pass and 11 correspond to the english/american A, and 13 is zweq in internals.

In marks for the year's work I somehow got a 7 though. Anyway back to this exam. It's 1 hour preperation and 25 minutes exam. I draw two folksongs from the middle ages. The middle ages was propably my prefered catagory, though I on beforehand had prefered a fairytale. However it went pretty well and I got a 8. Went home with quite a relief.

So to say I saved the best for last, as this is my best grade in danish oral ever. And now I will never have that subject ever again. \o/

hot in here

I have over the last few days consumed maybe a hundred litres of water. It's so damn hot. I've since the last exam not been doing much apart from reading for the next exams. Not that I've done that 24/7, but I haven't done much serious stuff other than that. I've been watching a lot of Scrubs. It's still really good the second time around. After finishing that I'll catch up with some shows which I haven't seen yet.

On the fourth Alias season 5 was released in denmark (on that page where I bought it atleast). Have been waiting for that day for while. I ordered a few other DVDs aswell:
Office Space
Das leben der Anderen
Planet of the Apes Collection (5 movies)
and Alias The Video Game, which they luckily had.

When I got the DVDs I wanted to update my DVDprofiler but it turns out they had released a new version in which you can only use all the features if you have less than 50 DVDs or pay 30$. I have over 50 dvds, so that means I can add them, but the new ones won't be added to the online profile. So that sucks. Hopefully I can find some other good program like it, do you know any?

Oh ye, and if the rest of you elma bloggers read this, make some new posts dammit, I wan't to have something to read =).

First three exams

During last week and the week before I had my three first exams, they were all written exams. Danish, Math and Spanish. In the danish exams I wrote an argumentation analysis of an article about cycling and doping. For math there was pretty many exercises, but I managed to make them all in time except one which I didn't knew how to make. Spanish was some text about child labour, for which there were some questions, a translation and an exercise where I had to write a letter. All in all I think they all went fairly ok.

There's still some time till the next exam, which is the 12. The four exams left are all oral. Next one is danish, but I've been reading for the spanish the last few days, as the two next exams are coming quite close after (15. and 18.). The last exam though isn't untill the 27. Beside danish, it's IT, spanish and law.

But daaaame it's boring to read for exams ;(
