    How do you all think you did in the exam?
    i wont go as far to say it was an easy exam, but it was certainly a 'nice' one. I answered everything and knew pretty much all i need to know. but i froze at the first question haha. like what the hell is biopol. thought the first question is meant to be the easy one haha. anyone else find it okay?

    I managed to put down biodegradable polymer just because of the start of the word... luck I guess! but I agree it wasn't the hardest but not the easiest either. I didn't get what product could be made from it though What precaution did everyone write for the COSHH question?

    The biopol question through everyone in my group off, but yes it was biodegradable polymer, and you could put things such as food packaging because it was made from natural sources and was biodegradable. The coshh question was also tricky if you didn't read the question as I didn't as it asked for coshh disposable precautions rather than precautions when using these substances, and for the soap dispenser it didnt matter whether you said PP, HIPS, or ABS as all can be injection moulded and that was the key thing to pick up on, I think overall the paper was relatively easy to get a B, but an A is where it gets tricky, I think the boundaries for an A will be 55, B 48, C 42

    I thought it was a very 'nice' paper, there wasn't really anything on joining which was helpful. The one part I messed up was the sink, which I put as spinning rather than press forming :/ Do you think I'll get any marks for that?

    I believe it was any solvent, was the question precautions when using or was it disposing? I don't think I read it properly

    I put liquid cement too, I'm sure we'll get the mark... but I also put press forming for the washing basin, I think as long as the method is reasonably plausible then they won't disregard your answer and give you 0. Let's hope not anyway!

    For the precaution I put an agreed and controlled method/process of disposing the substance? I originally put Like extraction masks warn etc but crossed it out.. I dont think that question was very clear at all

    Has anyone made a unofficial mark scheme for this?
