    YOU CAN NOT BRING IN A PAST PAPER THIS IS NOT ALLOWED

    However there's nothing stopping you taking pictures of the model answers ans printing them on flat paper.. If an invidulator see's you with a paper you're ****ed

    Good luck lads, put in an extra function into all ya designs and you'll be on track

    Omg I am worried now. I have been thinking that I could so have planned my challenge around this. Where did you acquire this information because if it is definite I don't want to walk into the exam pull out an old past paper then be kicked out

    Yes you are. I have taken it into my exam last year. The examiner clearly saw everyone had the same past paper which had been annotated and didnt care so obvioisly you can. I am re taking it this year.

    Hope part one went well for everyone!
    How is everyone planning to prepare for paper two.
    Paper 2 is worth only 20 marks. Over half are just for relatibg to each bullet point and examples. Other half is just based on how it was written. I dont really think there is much ways to prepare. How are you preparing?

    I am just going through past papers and revising what needs to be covered for each of the 7 possible themes
    Oh we havent been taught anything about this test, we mainly focused on the innovation challenge. What are the 7 themes?

    Okay, so i did the ocr innovation challenge for my AS level yesterday.
    I cant remember all the 6 themes, but here are 4: an area to relax in a town center to be used all year round, a charging station, a nutritional bar (clearly for food tech), a place to store shopping.
    I did the first one, but note how it says area and not seat or shelter specifically. This can therefore be a wooded park place or just simply one seat. It must also be able to be used all year round hence you need a shelter to protect it in rain or wind.

    Job bag- Take in images of bus shelters, seats in towns, cycle racks, communal shelters, benches etc. Think what you can do to make the product sustainable i.e solar panels, automatic lights. A list of the materials that you will use to make your models will also be handy for one of the questions. Find out what materials are available before you go in.

    Good luck mate

    Revise the key topics and practice answering past paper questions about the product you done in the other exam.

    Can anyone help me out with a question. What is the difference between commercial viability and economical viability? Plus are there any other types of viability? Thanks.
