Does anyone have any predictions about what may come up on the AQA Resistant Materials GCSE exam on Monday the 8th? Or what topics always come up?

there always seems to be something about thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics so try to learn the differences! I'm hoping something comes up on smart materials (shape memory alloys) and composite materials! Also, at the front of every past paper there is three requirements and explanations needed about the preliminary material, which is task lights for us. Try and think of 3 requirements and explanations before you go in to secure 6 marks.
All the best!

those are normally linked to the environment or CAD/CAM in some way

looking at past papers, maintenance is a popular choice but then again, mechanical systems have never come up so maybe it will be this year. In previous years, tolerances, health and safety have come up too.
absolutely dreading this exam to be honest!

We've had a really good teacher but we've only been doing exam content for a couple of weeks. It doesn't help that I was in a challenging class. We've had knives thrown about and everything. How did you do on coursework?

My teacher didn't tell us our coursework scores.

By the way, does anyone want to swap task light ideas?

Really? Wow! And my ideas are pretty basic, goosenecks, LEDs yadda yadda yadda. I'm really hoping we get to design like a science based one or something!

Do you think they will ask us to draw them relevant to designers or design eras such as Art Deco or Charles Rennie Macintosh like past years.

I don't think so - my teacher said they would have included that when they told us about task lights so I doubt we will have to design in a specific persons/eras style

No, for the context we got task lights and previous years the context was Art Deco and Mackintosh so they knew about that in advance
