Examiners' Reports - Membership (Part 3) and Associate-Membership Examinations, April 1981

‘The papers I marked ranged from reasonable to lousy. Written discussions were poor and in the design part of the questions there was too much analytical arithmetic, not enough engineering. This wastes the time of the candidate who thereafter makes a poor showing in all other sections of the chosen question. . . ’. This extract from the post-examination report of one of the examiners for the Institution Part 3 (Membership) examination in April 1981 summarises the general reaction of all of his examiner-colleagues-and echos the plaints of examiners past.
