It went ok. Some of the questions were a bit random (like the one about the queen) but overall it wasnt too hard. How about you?

I was clueless on the queen and surgeon question lol, kinda guessed my way through my paper. But my coursework grade should bring the paper up hopefully.

I didnt even think about recycling. Spent the majority of the lines explaining natural and man made fibres. Could have mentioned recycling, harmful dyes ect. Ugh. Messed that gift of a question up tbf

The one where you had to describe a fabric? That was a hard question, I just remember writing smart fabric but im sure they wanted something far more specific. Lost out on 4 much needed marks there.

Me too! But I just wrote about Lycra, there was really nothing else to write for four marks. The paper was mainly about products which sucked...

I wrote about natural fibres and how they don't end up in land fills, I also wrote about man made dyes and I then I wrote about wooden buttons for components .... I honestly had no idea :confused:

I mentioned coconut buttons. One component. Was a hard exam and usually 60/120 is needed for a C. Even a C is in question. Ugh but least its over now.

Ugh it's such a shame, my coursework was 1 mark of an A*, and this exam pretty much ruined my chances of getting an A overall. Even my sketches messed up, but the good thing is that a lot of us found it hard, so they might drop the boundaries

I chose the middle, the 30 degrees (I think) with a bar underneath, it is most likely right because cotton is 40 degrees so a blend would probably make the temperature lower.

Dont forget coursework is 60% so you can still do well. Coursework hasn't been moderated yet either (i think) so you might even be able to get that one mark. Don't stress about it. I'm sure you did fine. x
