Anyone do Engineering today? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I doubt it, but thought it was worth a shot asking.

    There were entire concepts in that paper that we hadn't covered properly, like examples of systems control technology.

    I would go on further but I tihnk I'd probably be wasting my time...

    Yeah, I did it. It was alright on the whole. There were some difficult questions but nothing too bad. I hope I've done alright, I actually revised for it! Engineering is the most boring thing to revise for.


    Me! I did it too.
    I dont think its too boring - Im going to do a National Diploma in Automotive Engineering instead of As so I guess I betta have done well!

    Mind you, I reckon I only got a top B for my coursework, and was hoping for more....what with that and only an average paper. today...

    I know what you mean - the last question, about 'sustainabilty' was a nightmare - 5 marks! Some of the questions were misleading and repetitive, I thought, especially when trying to trick you with the 'supplier / manufacturer / retailer' part. Overall, not too difficult, but took me the full 90 minutes (finished with about 30 seconds left).

    Interestingly, though, I did it at the same place as Starsailor, a college near to where we live. About 25 people started the exam - by the end, there was only three of us left! People found it so difficult that they were leaving after about 40 minutes, so hopefully the grade boundaries will be low!
