    Well what can i say, i mean, i had high hopes getting 100% in my d.t mock and completed my coursework to high quality. But the aptitude test i sat today was just blergh.

    So im wondering if anybody else took the aptitude test today and i wanna hear your thoughts on it.

    I chose the pet shop design task and i struggled with the time so i rushed and did a crap third initial idea then went onto my final design.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, and dont insult this bad grammer, i gotta go out now.

    Hey,

    I did the test aswell! i chose the memory stick holder task. I wasn't expecting it to be that difficult; i guess the hardest part was trying to get everything done on time. Just waiting for the reply now :s

    I got through to, but has anyone got theirs at cambridge?? 12th april??

    Also i did the usb one as well, it was the easiest, like to come up with idea in that amount of time.
    but i didnt actually finish it, (i didnt do the manufacturing techniques) but i still got through!

    What are you bringing to the interview becuase they said to bring your gcse work, does that mean the final product??? (im making a lamp so it migth not be possible to bring?)

    AHHH I CANT WAIT!

    I think I might try the past paper but theres not much you can do to revise for it. Have you had a look at the past papers? http://www.arkwright.org.uk/scholars/aptitude.htm
