New stuff

2023-01-03 - Started a post mortem of the 2022 Data Analytics exam. Be patient.

2022-12-31 - Interesting stats on 2021 enrolments in Applied Computing (Data Analytics + Software Development, units 3+4).

There were 98 providers (schools).

There were a total of 807 males (98% of total) and 168 females.

Satisfactorily completed the course: Males 98%, females 100%. Sorry guys! The girls win.

And according to, in November 2022, the world population reached an estimated 8 billion people. The number of internet users is around 5.47 billion.

2022-12-28 - It only took nearly 2 months, but finally I now have copies of both the [CLICK TO DOWNLOAD] 2022 SD exam and 2022 DA (Data Analytics) exam.
Thanks to the kind souls who helped out. Post mortems MAY be on their way, but I can't make promises.

2022-12-14 - Got around to doing some "Find the Wrong Old Crap and Fix It" stuff. Today, I repaired the Statistics page.
