2012 Final Results Released

result (also called upshot) is the final consequence of a sequence of actions or events expressed qualitatively or quantitatively. Possible results include advantage, disadvantage, gain, injury,loss, value and victory. There may be a range of possible outcomes associated with an event depending on the point of view, historical distance or relevance. Reaching no result can mean that actions are inefficient, ineffective, meaningless or flawed.

Some types of result are as follows:

  • in general, the outcome of any kind of research, action or phenomenon
  • in games (e.g. cricket, lotteries) or wars, the result includes the identity of the victorious party and possibly the effects on the environment
  • in mathematics, the final value of a calculation (e.g. arithmetic operation), function or statistical expression, or the final statement of a theorem that has been proven
  • in statistics, any information analyzed, extracted or interpolated from polls, tests or logs
  • in computer sciences, the return value of a function, state of a system or list of records matching a query (e.g. web search). The result type is the data type of the data returned by a function.
  • in science, the outcome of an experiment (e.g. see null hypothesis)
  • in forensics and justice, the proof of guilt or innocence of a suspect after evaluating evidence in a criminal investigation
  • in economics and accounting, the profit or loss at the end of a fiscal period.
  • in democracy, the election of a representative or the outcome of a vote on a subject

10 Things for graduating a High School

Graduation is the action of receiving or conferring an academic degree or the ceremony that is sometimes associated, where students becomegraduates. Before the graduation, candidates are referred to as graduands. The date of graduation is often called graduation day. The graduation itself is also called commencementconvocation or invocation.

At the University of Cambridge, the occasion on which most graduands receive their BA degree is known as general admission. After degree completion, graduates can be referred to by their graduating year. In the United States and Canada, it is also used to refer to the advancement from a primary or secondary school level.

When ceremonies are associated, they usually include a procession of the academic staff and candidates. Beginning at the secondary school level in the United States, the candidates will almost always wear academic dress, and increasingly faculty will do the same. At the college and university level, the faculty will usually wear academic dress at the formal ceremonies, as will the trustees and degree candidates.

"Graduation" at the college and university level occurs when the presiding officer confers degrees upon candidates, either individually or en masse, even if graduates physically receive their diploma later at a smaller college or departmental ceremony.

How to Prepare for Final Exams

Highlight key terms, concepts and people in your notes and textbook. Make documents that reflect this information. Consider putting this information into thinking maps or some other visual aid. It may seem like a lot, but the practice of reading and writing the items will help you remember them. It is a good idea to start assembling these lists early in the course rather than a few days before exams, when the task will be overwhelming.

 Make flashcards to assist you in learning important terms and their meanings. This may seem elementary, but the method works for all ages. You can test yourself throughout the course to maintain your knowledge.
