I completed the paper to the best of my ability, but I had a lot of BS in my answers. I didn't feel like the exam required you to have that much technical knowledge about the subject and I felt a lot will be left up to prejudice and the opinion of the marker. Overall, the paper wasn't that bad. I should get at least 70 for my efforts. Hopefully more.

I agree with you. I BS'ed ALOT of my answers. I hardly inputted any 'IPT knowledge/terms' at all. Initially I thought I'll get 90 due to doing past exams but this year... Was very different... I hope for a 80 but that might be impossible due to the amount of BS I had to do.

I agree with all that has been said - required very little knowledge of IPT skills and it was as though it was designed for bullshit/waffle... Also why was RFID included in the multi choice???

The EPR was not taught at all but required you to use logic and common sense to bullshit an answer basically. That is exactly what I did within that question and I thought it was such an unfair question, despite me answering it. I did give logical reasoning behind everything though.

This thread makes me feel better. I was pretty drained after biology, honestly doubt I would get a raw mark of 60. Hated how the questions had parts of each module instead of one question being purely on one module.

On the bright side the multiple choice was easy.
