Chaps,

following some recent posts on here about answering questions in 2391 written exams, to the 16th or 17th Edition, here it from the horses mouth (well City & Guilds anyway;))

As of the 5th June all 2391-301 (formerly 2391-101) examinations will be based upon the BS 7671:2008 (17th Edition). Although the paper is written for the 17th edition, and answers to the new edition are preferred, for the June 2008 exam only candidates will not be penalised if they answer to the 16th ed. wiring regulations. However, they must clearly state which edition their answer relates to.
As the new IEE Guidance Note 3 will not be available for this examination, centres should continue to train to the content of the current edition of Guidance Note 3, except where content of the 17th Edition renders the GN3 information obsolete.
This will be the position for all 2391 examinations until further notice.

Sat my 2391-10 theory paper last night, and I can confirm that we had to do the above ie write on the front of the answer paper which version of the regs we were answering to.

Note : you cannot chop and change between the 16th and 17th regs on the same paper! It must either be answered ALL to 17th or ALL to 16th.

Sat my 2391 theory last night and there was no mention of whether answers had to be 16th or 17th edition, we'd been told on the course to do everything as 17th edition - but no mention of writing it on the front of the answer sheet.

well you could have for the last exam

you could have written one answer and said "to BS7671:2001) after it amd the next answer "to BS7671:2008" after it

still, 'horse' and 'bolted' are two words that spring to mind:p

At least the resit will be all 17th then :D


Out of interest, did anyone else get ANY of the 3 circuit Zs values as being in limits (I think it was on question 24 or 25)? Working to the 17th I calculated them as all being above the tabulated max (corrected x0.8).....
