Technical Graphics- how did ye do?

Hi guys, I was absolutely dreading today especially after my low pre result but whatever happened, whether hard work paid off or i just really focused like I did in other subjects, i did far better in comparison to the pre. I got all my shorts done, Q6 (elipse and parabola) Q5 (transformation geometry) and Q2 (the 'flag' or rotation question) all done flawlessly. Q1 i left till the end and i just did a small bit of the plan and elevation in order to get a few marks as I only had 10 mins left. But enough about me, how did ye do?

I got on well, I did the same questions as you, I looked at Q4, and thought it looked easy, because I remember doing something similar, As I thought it used an axonometric to get the semi-circular handle, but when it said show the development, It kind of put me off as I was unsure about it, Some of the lads said they didn't use axonometric but I don't know, what the right way to go about doing the question was, Do you?

@Raffo to be honest i don't, i missed a full month in January because i was very ill so i missed that entire topic my teacher went over. Sure, i looked over it for shorts but there wasn't a hope i was going near Q4 in section 2 or Q3, the axonometric, it takes too long. Q4 can be grand if you know what you are doing, My friend who is literally gifted at TG did Q4 but when he got to that handle he had to just leave it in the end to answer other questions, so i'd say you were better off skipping it.

I did short questions very well, answered long questions 3,4 and 5 perfectly. I also left q1 until the end and in about 10 minutes i only did most of the elevation and nothing else. does anyone know how many marks out of 80 i should roughly get for only elevation mostly done and nothing else?

bout 14 or 15.

I thought it was challenging, but in a good way if that makes sense. I also did Q5, 6, 2 and Q1 in that order. Flew through 5 and 6 and q2 was actually fine as well, only thing was is that i messed up in the elevation so i had to spend 20mins fixing everything and i was really stressed about it. after that i had to do q1 and i was still recovering from q2 so i made some mistakes here and there. But sure it worked out in the end. Hope i did enough to get an A
