    Re: Engineering Exam Discussion 2017

    I'm just kicking myself because of that half-section question. I would've been able to finish it if I had the time. 5 marks down the drain.

    It was pretty difficult exam, so I'm calling Band 6 to be around 80-85% raw mark

    Re: Engineering Exam Discussion 2017

    I'm hoping that I'll get at least 85 raw, but I already know that I lost at least 10 marks so fingers crossed

    Hoping for a high b5 to low b6 (b6 preferred ofc)

    Re: Engineering Exam Discussion 2017

    I didn't expect that counterbor drawing symbol stuff in multichoice considering previous years didn't have it. Found the exam really difficult. I thought there would be more aero-engo tbh.

    Re: Engineering Exam Discussion 2017

    The exam itself was fair in terms of difficulty, there were a few questions (fuck you multiple choice) that required specific knowledge like zener diodes and manufacture of carbon fibre, but overall it was ok in my opinion. The mechanics were fine but the drawings was pure aids.

    Re: Engineering Exam Discussion 2017

    I didn't find drawings too hard. And the last question for multiple choice was cooked. The ratio of whatever.

    Which questions would be the discriminators? Zener diodes, 2nd part of truss analysis, gear number...?

    Re: Engineering Exam Discussion 2017

    Maybe the drawings especially the true length, the welding question and some of the last multiple choice

    What about the logic gate question? Did anyone else get 0 for each row

    Wasn't it a NAND and NOR gate attached to an AND?

    A B NAND NOR AND

    I can't remember the logic gates exactly but that's assuming what the question was.
