    Thanks for the link my teacher was adamant on not giving me earlier past papers because they follow a different format. Any predictions for section C, I really hope blow moulding comes up and it is not a metal process.

    Just need 66 ums for this exam... And I still don't feel like I can get that, I know most of the materials since I did it last year. But last year I got a U.

    I've just made a TSR account because I am remarkably screwed for tomorrow. Put yourself in the shoes of someone who has done next to no product revision and wasn't taught it in class. I have roughly 12 hours now so how do you think i should spend that time. Thanks

    Would focus on looking at past papers to learn how marks are awarded and general layout of the paper and learning properties of some common materials (aluminium, HDPE, MDF, oak etc.) Definitions of working properties would be good to lean to such as hardness, strength etc.

    I'm year 13 and retaking this exam, I thought last years paper went well but ended up scraping a C and I just went over the paper again a few days ago and I can't see what I did too wrong to just get on a C, however I got an A in CW in year 12 so I got a B overall. I'm really ******** it for this paper because of last year loooool, anyone get any predictions?
    i'm in the exact same situation as you, except that i was like 3 marks away from a B! tomorrows paper is really scaring me because of what happened last year

    I thought we are not allowed to use colouring pencils in the exam and instead just label colours?

    Hopefully it will be fine, we should just stay positive

    Should I be learning properties of smart and modern materials because these don't really come up for properties questions?
