    Yep! All of the ones on the edexcel website. It's a bit late but I'd recommend going through some of them and looking at mark schemes to see how examiners like you to answer them. Also read examiners reports, they tell you a lot about what key words you should look for in the questions with regards to how many points they want from you. Also there was a lot of similarity between June 2010 and June 2015. So I'm going to have another look over 2011 just in case there's some sort of trend forming. There is also usually application questions about Form vs Function and Anthropometrics and Ergonomics, so make sure you're fully clear on what those are. Good luck, we're the second to last people doing this exam so hopefully they'll be nice to us tomorrow!

    I'd just try and make sure you include as much as you can in that two hours, don't stop early and sit there, like even the most obvious points have been put down as marks before. E.g. for the features of a chair one year you got a mark for "it can be sat on". And in graphics with the reasonably tight boundaries every little mark counts.

    Also make sure that you also answer with as many justifications to your answers as possible, using as much technical language as you can think of. Other than that I don't really think there is much else advice that can be given in this exam. All of the mark schemes are so sporadic in what they want from us that we just need to think on our feet a lot, referring to the technical knowledge as much as possible.

    Good luck to you all!

    Wow if only I had known these were the ones to come... How did It go? Hardest question was probably the disadvantages of using robots to make products in the production. System

    I had practised a robot question just like that before so it was ok, if only it was pros and cons I would've had a guaranteed 8 marks :L
