    Not if you don't want some contact from the SEC. Once the date for appeals of LC grades is over, probably late August, then there is not a problem. Until then, they remain examination material.

    how long were peoples briefs ? :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 ✭✭✭ markh1074


    mines looking to be between 30 and 40 pages, including all my diagrams and working drawings.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,159 daz801


    So we were told that the examiners are coming in to mark our projects tomorrow and that they will also be training in new examiners to mark the projects. This makes me a bit nervous, do you think this is likely to make them mark the project a bit easier or harder?

    They will mark it exactly the same.
    Very odd that you were told any details of what is happening.

    Well I hope everyone got it finished. But I think the general feeling about the project is that it was very unfair? It was a ridiculous amount of work for 25%?


  • Registered Users Posts: 18 ✭✭✭ TheHardyViper


    Yeah I agree.
    It was like having to make 3 projects in one.
    Got it done though, seriously took a lot of time, especially from doing theory work.


  • Registered Users Posts: 43 ✭✭✭ LCstudent17


    Looking at my 2 brothers from the last 2years, this years project looks to have took a lot more work and it has taking a lot more money? Projects of these sizes aren't viable for schools? I recon every project cost 200+?


  • Registered Users Posts: 18 ✭✭✭ TheHardyViper


    Well this year, many people (in my class, anyway) made a crane to transport the ball, we then had to make a scoring mechanism and a grab/suction mechanism to pick up and release the ball.
    I think it was 3 years ago they had to make a crane, and that's it.
    I think we were a trial run and after they hear all the complaining, next years group will get an easy project.

    So guys, how did everyone get on?

    B2 can't complain.

    Anyone know when we can collect projects?/ Post pictures or videos on internet?

    My project went terrible. I'd say the hardest project they ever gave. Was the only subject I had a possibility of a high B or an A and I got a C2 cos me project was so bad


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,780 ✭✭✭ jamo2oo9


    Got a B1 in it. It was all down to my project really. My teacher did say it was the most difficult project he has come across so far


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,553 ✭✭✭✭ Copper_pipe


    Got a C3, project was nowhere near finished so happy enough with that


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,159 daz801


    B1. there was only two A2's in my class and no A1's. lowest engineering results in my school for a while.

    happy enough with my c1 as I fuked up on the theory but had a full 25 percent fer the project :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 43 ✭✭✭ LCstudent17


    Anyone gonna post a picture of there project?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,159 daz801


    I don't think we're aloud until rechecks are done


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Education Moderators Posts: 26,519 CMod ✭✭✭✭ spurious


    You can post once the date for applying for rechecks is gone, which I think it is.

    I'm sure the SEC will be in touch if I'm wrong about that.
