  • Pass rate for June 2008

    Hi

    Does anyone know what the pass rates were for the June 2008 sitting yet?

    I am always curious to know.

      Thanks Sandy

      This makes interesting reading. I am surprised that the PTC pass rate has actually improved when so many students were complaining it was one of the hardest papers they had ever seen for PTC.

      Personally, I found it simple and straight forward.

      Thanks again.

        Not sure that your last comment is necessary or that helpful, think those of us that have failed an exam (myself PEV and DFS) wont take kindly to smug comments.

        How about a little sympathy

          It was a "personal" comment made by speegs. I believe if she found it simple and striaght forward then she is entitled to say so. I didn't see it as a smug comment at all. It was also an exam that you didn't take....

            Sorry Poppy, but I don't read 'smug' into that either.

            Speegs has worked hard and passed.

            It seems obvious that there are more people posting about failing than succeeding, which is probably why Speegs made that comment.

            Well done to all who passed, and good luck to those facing re-sits.

              I agree, I don't think that Speegs comment was perfectly fine.
              I also agree that the exam was straight forward and was what was expected.

              While I sympathise with anyone who has not passed I also believe that those who passed should be able to comment and celebrate without anyone 'having a go' or seeming bitter. We worked hard for those (4 in my case, PEV, PCR, BT and PT) passes.

                As my mother would say if you don't have something constructive to say don't say anything at all......

                By the way I am happy that speegs passed but I have friends that are heartbroken to have failed it, who spent a long time preparing for this exam. To find questions on redundancy that we weren't taught and weren't in the book. So easy, straight forward I don't think so ......

                  You have my sympathy.
                  To avoid similar problems, may I suggest that your December preparations use what you can to try to help you pass, but you make sure that you have covered all the standards as stated in the student record.
                  Just beware over reliance on what you are taught or what your books say.

                  Best wishes
                  Sandy

                    Thanks Sandy, my friend had failed PTC in December but I'd luckily passed (glad as it seems to be getting harder) but she has now failed her resit in June (our work only pays for two attempts so she will have to fund this herself if she has enough confidence to try again). I have suggested she should appeal as it's not something we were taught in our classes, she had also attended extra revision lessons our college had put on but had no idea how to deal with redundancy. She only failed section 1 and thinks not having been taught this meant she had to guess at an answer.

                    As always your opinion appreciated

                      I run a lot of revision days, and noticed a problem before the June 2008 exams that I hadn't come across before.
                      In the PCR session, a significant section of the class had been taught the wrong way to take account of wastage of raw materials.
                      As you can imagine, having learnt one way, they weren't keen to take my word for it that their way was wrong.

                      Perhaps the recession will mean that there will be a larger pool of lecturers and fewer mistakes.

                      Rather than rely on your lecturer, I recommend you focus on the standards.

                        I think it would be hard to fail just on redundancy, it was only a tiny part of section 1.

                              I know they were updating the site, so the link may have changed.

                              ETA: The main site seems to be still down, so have a go later this evening or tomorrow. It might be up then.
