My score is very bad considering I had no clue what I was doing in that test since I usually stick to bio and build events, but what I am saying is we got fifth with a score of 227 and Cyfalls got forth with a score of 224. So like I said 10 or so points taken would mean we would beat them. And there is no way we beat you in TPS.I actually looked for out TPS test today and couldn't find it. But yeah, you're right... huh. Good job I guess? What was your score? Speaking of which... it looks like Cyfalls was the 3rd place school in TPS so we should have a third place dog tag.... :/
Speaking of TPS, was it just me, or did that just seem like a calculus test? My partner was the one who studied physics, but I've taken Calc BC and I did the physics part since that's all it was... (well, minus the last question)
yeee water quality was bogus. the national rules explicitly say contests should not include testing information on macroinvertebrates (a big focus in the past years), and they tried to give us 50% of the test over that. I pointed that out during the test to the proctor and he acknowledged that there wasn't much that can be done, so that macroinvertebrate section was abandoned. still, the rest of the test was clearly over past rules so it was basically taking a test without notes and just based on memoryI heard that some of the tests/test questions at Husky could be found online and/or were direct copies from another tests. I didn't personally take these tests, but supposedly the water quality test was a 2011 or so test and based on freshwater instead of the estuaries (or whatever it was. I don't do wq =.=) that were supposed to be the topic of the test. Some other tests were plagiarized. Also, the We've Got Your Number Test consisted of only 1 set of numbers, instead of the usual 2 sets.
Of course, the problems with the tests aren't Husky's fault but rather the fault of the school that wrote the test. However, I've really hoped that I can go to a legit invitational with good tests. Plagiarizing tests is disadvantageous to all teams, since it becomes a competition between who has an answer key for the test and who doesn't, or who remembers the most from last year. It's not even a competition to see who the best is.
I was actually pleased with the early awards ceremony, and I bet a lot of other schools were, too. Even with the insufficient numbers of proctors etc., Husky did do a very good job with running it.
ooh information about langham creek's invitational! I'll be waiting.
