Congratulations on the pass, a significant achievement, 2391 is not the easiest to pass and requires application.

The girl at college who deals with electrical courses is on holidays, have to wait until Monday. I have waited almost two months, I can handle a few more days of cliffhanging.

I have been quietly confident throughout all my electrical exams so far, because of the amount of effort I put into revision, but the 2391 exam did not go well for me, I did not use my time well enough during the exam and my mind blanked, I think it was nervous excitement. I think I might have dropped 20-30 marks at best.

Keep us posted Billy.

The exam itself is not that difficult overall. There are some questions that will stump you, like the one we had was a EAWR question out of nowhere, but after reading through the question again it was not as difficult as first thought.

Try to stay calm, take a drink of water with you. Eat before the exam, so your brain is functioning. Manage your time well. Read every question through twice, if not more and plan out your answers. I finished the exam in 1 hour and 30 minutes, but realized afterward I could of elaborated more in my answers to maximize on marking, but would of meant tipp-ex'ing a lot of what I wrote out. I had a couple of friends sitting the exam and they finished before me, so I rushed it through, just so I could go for a beer with them. Use all the time necessary, go back to a question you find difficult later, do not dwell on it, like I did.

For the formulas, remember to write every step, for an r1 + r2 on a ring for example, remember to divide by 4, etc. Write down the formula even if you cant remember how to do it.

Pay more attention to the questions with higher marks available. Remember your earth fault loop drawings, ring testing procedure, order of tests, testing with an emphasis on safety first.

You have probably already been told this by your lecturer, but it is all true. Be confident, stay calm, manage your nerves and time well. You will do fine.

Good luck

2 and half hours is a long time. I think you will have plenty of time to work with your reader. Just think about your answers, and what C&G want to see.

Good luck

Yes the forumla is correct. I sat the exam on June 14th 2012. The exam results have just been released. So I am just waiting for my college to give me my mark.

Apparently there are only 3 guys marking all the papers, so there is a big gap between the first results coming out and the last.
I'd say the wait for the results was almost as difficult as sitting the actual exam.

Congratulations to all those who passed!

I was told they are trying to reduce the waiting time due to the timescale left to get the 2391 qualification as the is only a few exams left.
Well done to those passed.

I passed the June 14th Exam, found out my results today by post.

For guys who are awaiting their results, I know how nerve-racking it can be, thinking you might have failed. I posted many of the questions I thought I dropped marks on, my estimate is between 20-30 marks, so up to 20% and still passed. So this might give you an indication of how well you did. You can see the thread here:

does your college not give you any? they are on here i believe or online.

All i done in past papers was dec 2010 june 2011, july 2011, december 2011 and march 2012. i didnt think the june 2012 and july 2012 was anything like them past papers i did or the March 2012. The section b seemed to not relate as much as the old papers other than drawing the type of system imo and the was alot more reg questions in section a ie IP ratings but about 7-8 questions about them. bathroom zones never seen that before on past papers but was on both june and july.

these where a minority considering the amount of questions to answer but can put you off in the exam.

do the past papers and use GN3 to answer ALL of the questions and highlight it in the gn3 book, then you know you got it right. after doing that with a few papers do them again without the gn3. you should be able to answer alot easier if you struggle then flick in the gn3 to find the answer. will be alot easier and quicker top find as you have highlighted it before. Do this with as many past papers over and over to the point where you know every answer without the book. it worked for me.


Good luck.

Good advice there I think, so thanks in advance. (I'm taking the October exam).
