A data processing apparatus (1) for teaching keeps a data record of questions (2) and a data record (4) of student answers to those questions. A new student is tested by the same questions and in cases where he or she gives a wrong answer the data processing apparatus (1) presents the new student with a question that other of the students who answered the same question wrong, also got wrong. The apparatus works on the basis that students who have similar deficiencies in their understanding are likely to struggle with the same sorts of questions, and can therefore be assisted by increased encounters with questions of that type.

||PCT/SG2015/050454||NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY ||SHARMA, Sunny |
A server apparatus (102) for monitoring blood glucose in a wearer (106) of a wearable device (104) is configured to perform the first mode of operation of blood glucose monitoring for the wearer of the device using data obtained by a radio- frequency blood glucose monitoring module (124) in the wearable device. The server apparatus is also configured to perform a second mode of operation of blood glucose monitoring using data obtained by a light spectroscopy blood glucose monitoring module (126) in the wearable device. The server apparatus performs a threshold comparison between a reference blood glucose value for the wearer of the device and the threshold glucose value (314). A first one of the first mode of operation and the second mode of operation is selected in dependence of the threshold comparison.
