I took the written exam was pretty easy. I have one doubt though. There was a question like "Did you do X or Y in your design?" I only wrote that I did X. I did not go ahead and describe why I did it that way as the question did not ask why I chose X but what I chose? Is this ok? Am I gonna lose points like crazeeE?

Hi
I am still in the development stage of my assignement however as I understand that the written test for the assignment is all about explaining your design choices.
Thanks

From what I have heard from people who did MS here is that if they ask one word answer question, you need to answer in one word. If you answer more than that, professors do not like it. Looks like you did great.

Hi Kalichar,
take it easy. I think what you did is perfect.
I did the same thing.
Now you enter the most difficult phase - waiting.
Godd luck, and just forget your assignment because you can't change it now!

Welcome to Waiting Club. Do not worry about written test. They not goanna read all and judge you on the basis of test. I think it is only a mechanisium to varify them as: Is the same person coder and test taker?

Hi Kalichar
I didn't meant to discourage you by saying that the exam is also about explaining our design choices. I just wanted to caution all future aspirants to be clear about this point.
Let us hope for the best.
I am sure that you would come out with flying colors.
Cheers
