|So... that exam

I really don't know how it went to be honest.
The questions I was banking on, which he gave us papers on, came up. But that doesn't mean much. I mean, I did the questions, and was caught out on some small details, which doesn't bode well if I want a good mark. On the other hand, I did add things that I don't think others necessarily talked about, and I got the references in. Overall, I showed that I knew the material, but it's so hard to tell with that exam, and with that lecturer.
Also, the crazy kicked in. I was talking about the disadvantages of using agents in autonomous wireless sensor networks and had to talk about the problem of removing agents that had outlived their purpose. I started to use terms like "neutralising agents that had outlived their purpose". Basically, I managed to write a paragraph of crazy about terminating agents while sounding like some sort of wannabe-spook! I haven't gone that crazy in an exam since I took the wrong exam in Guildford! Unfortunately, I don't think this was the wrong exam this time.
On the upside, it's over. I only need to think of them in the context of my final year project.
Also, following the lead of the academic in question, this was probably my most synonym-laden and vocabularily dilated third-level exam response I've written ... ever.
