If you have done your revision of GN3 then you should be OK.
You must know the correct terminology by now and be able to remember what forms you need when and also the information and safety requirements to which you need to adhere.

Do keep reading the GN3 but do not overdo it, there are always small sections that you thought would not turn up that do and catch you out.

Practice the past papers under exam conditions to test yourself, even if it is one for which you have researched the answers previously.

Remember do the questions you can complete easily first and then return to the other ones, do not get bogged down on a question, just move on.

Read the scenario and relate your answers to the scenario.

Practice answering as briefly, but completely as possible, look at the number of marks available and answer with the appropriate level of detail.

You will be OK, good luck.

I have just sat the 2391 theory exam on july 12th 2012. Think ive done pretty well after constant revision and answering 90% off the questions with a good confident answer. How did everyone else feel about thjis exam?

To be honest (and not sounding smug) but i thought that was one of the easiest 2391 papers i have seen in a long time. The scenario questions were probably easier than the first 20. If they are giving 12 marks for the safe isolation procedure then it cant be too bad can it? What did others think?

Hi all I found the exam quite easy BUT with re checking exam after I found myself changing answers which can.be a fatal error for me. Good luck to allho took it does anyone no when we will know results.

I did hear that and this must be a high pass mark then if everyone thought it was easier. If its a fail I will just re take, hopefully not tho. There was one question what 2 conditions must there be to issue a minor works cert.??? Any ideas I put must be adition or alteration to a existing circuit.

I have to agree it was a walk in the park for me too. :smug:

However looking back I did do some school boy mistakes such as stating "Verification" instead of "Initial Verification" for the type of inspection and test required. I also found myself tight on time in the end as it is very easy to lose track and spend to much time on some questions.

On the safe isolation question I initially didn't get what they were asking for so I skipped it, but when I came back to it later the penny dropped and I couldn't understand why I didn't get it the first time, I can only suppose having got to the end the pressure was off and I could think straight again.

I beleave that is the correct answer and it was what we all came up with when we discussed after.

Hopefully. A few in my group got confused and did the full ze test when it actually wanted safe isolation. All calculations was ok r1r2 test was ok. Can you think of any more. Did you mess up on any?

Alteration or MINOR addition, not including a new circuit or protective device, i think that is the most important point, as a addition in a more involved form would be covered by a EIC.
