    tips for how to get full marks on manufacturing processes like rotational moulding, injection, etc. You think it might be different? It usually comes up in section C, the highest I got was 6/8 marks .-.

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

    Things that limit marks that people tend to forget in the processes question are:
    -Removing flashes and sprues at the end
    -The hydraulic ram (if it is injection moulding)
    -And make sure you draw the mould/die/whatever in the shape of the given product, otherwise you can never get 8 :nah:

    hope that helped in some way oh and notes and diagrams otherwise only 4 marks max (which im sure you know)

    Join the crew I don't think any of us were taught any exam content...
    I think we were all either not taught theory or taught it incredibly badly (in my case)

    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
    Look at last years past paper and do not focus on anything that comes up there because the likelihood of it being on tomorrow's is very small unless they do what they did with composites recently and put it on two years back to back

    Do you think that because all of the section C stuff have been all thermoplastics?

    yeah pretty much
    in 2010 section c was a metal/polymer
    in the jan11 paper it was a polymer and packaging
    in 2012 series section c was a polymer
    in the jan 13 section c was woods and fabrication
    in the 14 series it was a polymer and the same for 15 series

    so either a wood or metal, anything could come up so best to revise everything

    That's true, I remember I think it was June 2013 section C was based on metals, specifically on the manufacture of sink. Maybe it will be woods, but who knows, could also be packaging too!

    If it suggest anything which is made out of metal my answer will always be ALUMINIUM. I don't know anything about metals and metal processes. I know how to join them, I know some forming processes but when It comes to write stuff about them I am stuffed! How do you think you will do it a metal based question comes up in section C?

    It's a shame the topics that i really don't want to come up probably will. I would happily write about packaging! And section c is so heavily weighted in the paper

    Yep. Aluminium is the go-to but i think i would choose stainless steel if the product didnt focus on density.
    I know its really late but you could check out technologystudent,he writes a lot of notes for pd
    Honestly i don't know. I've only done one section c on a metal and it was a coffee cup,it wasn't too bad but my weaknesses are explaining metal processes, fine with diagrams and modifications though

    Question 6(b) about the concrete bench, I am unsure how to get all 8 marks as the mark scheme is also quite vague.

    What have you talked about so far? looking at the mark scheme I think all of the points and drawings w/ annotations would be fine(?), but it seems harsh with only 5 points

    So far I've done annealing, pressforming, sandcasting, embossing,cupping and deep drawing and drop forging and I don't know if these process would be useful if asked for how the material is shaped into the chair or sutin X_x

    Yeah I got the points, but usually the mark scheme has copy of the diagram. I didn't get the diagram. What should it be?
