I wouldn't rely too heavily on that quiz as an indicator.

I agree with RF whole heartedly, those questions bear no resemblance what so ever to 17th Edition, firstly because they are written in English icon_wink.gif

Are your exams open book? Or do they really expect you to remember off the top of your head the difference between 4.3.2.1. and 4.2.1.2?
Hope that none of you have dylexia.
If you have to remember the exact paragraph number (rather than what the paragraph actually means) then I feel sorry for the lot of you.
What is the pass rate btw?

Those answers are correct. icon_rolleyes.gif see 522.6.7


Sort of, even if the lighting installation is done in an earthed conduit and it enters a bathroom it needs to be RCD protected (for that part anyway).

Well done leeco

I got 79%, bit worrying really (on that online test thing)
Not to put any of you down, but if the exam really is questions like that, I don't see how it can really test that you are prepared for the work you do.

The point was the first question says lights in steel conduit don't need to be RCD protected.

The second question says they do if the light is in a bathroom.

The questions are poorly written and contradict themselves. We all know what they are getting at, but they should write the questions properly, so there can be no uncertainty.

What score did you get on your PROPER 17th edition exam?

The pass rate? Or the pass mark?

I was told by the C&G girl that the pass mark varies from exam to exam and from loc to loc.

I only got one Q wrong.
