Couldn't find a thread on this.

Is anyone doing it tomorrow? & what type of question topic do you plan to pick?

1. Built environment and construction
2. Engineering
3. Food
4. Graphic Products
5. Manufacturing
6. Resistant Materials
7. Systems and Control
8. Textiles

Personally, I think Resistant Materials and Graphic products are probably the ideal options.

there is actually very little revision resources for this course which is a bit crap, I've been trying to but I'm finding it pretty difficult

Haha, same. I'm doing re-sit and have done fudge all, unfortunately. I'll probably go down the route of resistant materials too, since it's what my teacher recommended.

My best advice for revision would be past papers. Last time, I was given 3 sheet fulls of topics to revise, none of which came of real help. I recommend just printing off the Resistant Materials questions in some past papers and practicing them. That really is the best option.

Best of luck to you both

Look at past papers, trust me! Looking through the book and reading the little things, is a waste of time, in my opinion.

i did graphic products in the first one and got a D, but i only need 6 marks to get an A overall so unfortunately i'm not motivated at all to revise :\

yeahh you're right i came on here to find revision materials cause i'm just stuck :P
we've been through all of the past papers as a class but the exam I did just threw things out of the blue so i still wasn't prepared! nightmare

Hello I am doing this exam as well tomorrow, tbh I am not looking forward to it, because there is very little revision resources available. Any body going to be doing the graphic products questions? I find it a *****!
Anybody else in the same boat?
