Hi,
How are we suppose to use UML diagrams in Exaplify and will we be able to use 
diagrams that's the question. Because I feel for this unit it is hard to explain 
everything by using words.

Waiting for response.

Hi,

There won't be any exam questions requiring you to draw diagrams. It's try that sometimes 
it can be more effort to explain an answer in words than by drawing a diagram, so one way 
of preparing might be to spend some time practising that: take a concept we covered in 
the lectures, and see if you can explain it in words, rather than by using diagrams.

Cheers,

Arran

It is very hard,this time like this.
Hope everything goes well because it is not that easy to explain everything without using 
diagrams for this subject, i understand the situation.

Dear all

Because we were expecting to have online exams this semester Arran and I have been providing 
writing rather than drawing questions all through the unit.  
Actually, students have been doing these quite well, so try not to worry about them.

If you have a look at the sample exam and at the workshop questions you can find examples of 
UML (and other) questions that require you to explain in words rather than draw.

Just to confirm again:
All exam answers will be typed into examplify.  
There will be no questions where you are asked to draw a diagram.
But you may use blank paper for writing notes and working out.

Regards and good luck everyone
Rachel

I have a small question.
The paper will consist 120 marks and I saw in the sample paper one question related to the 
architecture consisting 30 Marks, but what should we include to ans such questions consisting 
heavy weightage because we can not even include diagram as well which can support our answers. 
Any suggestions ??
