Examiners' Reports - Membership (Part 3) and Associate-Membership Examinations, April 1982

The Membership (Part 3) examination papers are set by corporate members with many years' practical experience of structural engineering; the questions themselves are invariably based on actual projects. The work of candidates is marked by younger members who, while having acquired extensive professional experience, can nonetheless remember the trauma of tackling a Part 3 examination question. Both Chief and Marking Examiners hope to award every candidate a passmark, but they are aware of their duty to the Institution and to the public at large. Each knows that a chartered structural engineer must have an ability to design safely and economically and a facility to communicate design intentions. Thus Part 3 questions are framed to give every candidate an opportunity of demonstrating these essentials for a professional career.
