    Re: What did you think of the exam?

    the exam questions were easier than i thought, considering i didn't really study and knew almost nothing. Just kept on bullshiting about shibori and kimonos throughout

    Re: What did you think of the exam?

    I thought it was definitely harder than past papers, but do-able. I did Q14 on Japanese textiles. For the printing question the only thing that came to mind was block printing. Does anyone actually use 15 minutes on the multiple choice?

    Re: What did you think of the exam?

    exam was beautiful very easy i thought although i was a little thrown by the wording about the historical design question. i also felt a little bit rushed on part c of question 14 i jsut hope i wrote enough about the implications of religion and workers skill and status. but overall much mroe straight forward then previous years. i also did japanese and i talked about kimonos and obis with reference to shibori, yuzen and tradtional emrboidery as well as the production method of borocade done of the draw loom. Hoping fro at leat 45/50 but fingers cross 48??

    i got exactly the same multiple choice and i am sure 2 was A because i do business studies and logos on garments are not a promotion strategy, also i think 1 was C for sure agitation means that the fabric accepts dye as the porous regions are opened so defiantly not B and deffinatly not D as migration occurs when u dye it not a problem associated with the dyes colourfastness after

    Re: What did you think of the exam?

    i did digital image heat transfers for the printing.
    aaand then kimono.
    yeah some of the wording was funny! like the historical design development one.
    oh well, all over!
    it was so much better than i expected. i wanted to study soo much more for it but managed to remember more than i thought.
    i said cotton forthe shirt, polyester for the other 2

    Re: What did you think of the exam?

    yes digital direct would be fine although very expensive, i did digital heat transfer printing which is very similar.

    Re: What did you think of the exam?

    I went into the exam feeling completely unprepared, but i think i went 'ok'. lol.

    Does anyone have a copy of the exam, or know where it could be posted? We couldnt take ours and i want to see what i put for the multiple choice :P

    For the printing one i put Heat Transfer Printing... only because of the colours etc, but i wasnt really sure. Oh well.

    I think i did pretty well with the suit one; for the shirt i put 100% cotton, and the suit i put wool/polyester blend, core spun yarn, plain weave. My textiles teacher said that was ok?!? hope so! lol.

    For the extended i did the Japanese.. i talked about Yukiyoe (japanese block printing)... but i basically blabbed on and on. lol.

    screen printing wouldnt have woked as you couldnt make it multi coloured as they were asking..
    block printing maybe
    i did roller printing as it can provide 16 colours and gives precise prints due to the doctor blade cuts off excess pigments..

    Exam was gud i thought
    i studied hard out 4 it
    as i am assuming major was quiet gud
    n didnt want my exam marks 2 bring me down
    and it was my last exam n i had a little bit of time to study
