I got 79% but I have no idea how, was expecting to get somewhere between 50 and 60.

I,m sure it's much better than you think yourself very best of luck with it.

I think with most subjects that dont have a FE, that you have a chance to repeat it during the summer, tbh I think that is something you would want to avoid at all costs as you wont have the same level of support from the lecturers as you would during the term.
Yeah ,having a poor level of support would be terrible in some cases!!!

Sound!38.5% out of 50 going into the final exam, surprised by Java this semester, figured it was gonna be the one i'd struggle with most but its been grand overall.

There isn't much excuse really to be failing the likes of Digital Imaging or Vis Comm, even if you aren't good with photoshop etc, there were loads and loads of marks to be picked up from research books alone, people struggling with java etc I can empathise with them alright.

Agree 100% with you... have 47.25% for Java happy days Web Design proving so frustrating that I,m not achieving much despite loads of time spent on it!

Web Design is awfully slow alright, although I've more or less done the products page which was a right pain but at least i've all my divs etc done which makes the other pages a bit easier.

Have you used any stock photo websites to get images? There was one great site I had used but Im just after realising that the t&c when you download an image off there state you have to reference the website. Tryin to find a different site now but most of them are pretty awful.

No I tried to stick with images we were given and 2 more images from the exisiting site simply to avoid the referencing and copyright issues but it looks fairly ****E tbh!! still am only aiming for an ok mark really.
Once you have the divs etc sorted I think most of the hard work is done.... I hope anyway!!!
One thing about it is I definitely understand aspects of designing a site much more clearly now, if only i was good enough to make it pay )

I'm not so sure. I saw a site that was made for a cousin of mine by a professional crowd and I was shocked. It was all done on WordPress which is simple to do and he was charged e800 for the privilege. I was asked to go into WordPress to change a few things for him. I would have definitely done it for half the price! Although if you had to do it from scratch, all in code you would definitely earn your money. Don't think it would pay actually judging from the amount of time it's taking me to do four pages

Yeah, when looking around online to get some ideas, the quality of design has been pretty poor. I've learn an awful lot about CSS doing this site and had we been allowed build our own site, I'd have probably come up with something a bit more creative. This project is awfully uninspiring.

Yeah definitely the subject matter is not helping the cause YAWN.... on a more serious note is Web Design realistically not doomed when tools like WordPress are becoming more and more commonplace and are so easy to use, surely except for large organisations companies etc will construct their own web presence on WordPress?

Yeah, hard to imagine there being much demand for someone who is only proficient in CSS, Javascripting and Flash are probably the 2 most in demand and I imagine a lot harder than CSS.

If you get a chance, look at SQL as well, trust me, you will be doing yourself a favour.
