All exam results should now be available through EUCLID. A total of 278 students sat the Inf1-DA exam this year, with over 95% passing and very many achieving Grade A. Those are excellent results, congratulations.
I’ll publish a more detailed feedback report later, with information about student solutions to all of the exam questions. If you have questions or concerns about your result in this or any other course then contact your Personal Tutor to discuss this further.

Notes and solutions for the information retrieval questions in Tutorial 7 are now on the tutorials web page.
In the most recent tutorial exercises you used the
cqp tool to search a 3-gigaword Dickens corpus. We also have the 96-gigaword British National Corpus installed under
cqp which you can explore by selecting
BNC at the commmand line.
$ cqp -e
[no corpus]> BNC
BNC> AllWords = [word="[a-zA-Z].*"]
BNC> size AllWords
This has part-of-speech and lemma information like the Dickens corpus, using the Claws 5 POS tag set. As this corpus is much larger you will find queries take noticeably longer to execute.
I also recommend reading the following article on the design and creation of the BNC.
This includes information about text corpora in general, as well as specific details about how the BNC came about.
Notes and solutions for the corpus querying exercises in Tutorial 6 are now on the tutorials web page.
