Junior Cert – Technical Graphics

David – Higher Level

My last morning of my Junior cycle! :O .. I’m getting old!
Anyway, I did the bare minimum amount of study for TG as I’ve always done well in it. I got 72% in the mocks from doing no study, and having done very few short questions and having revised the whole course and short questions in class, I saw little need.
Short Question’s – These were easy enough, no surprises. There are only 15 and you pick 10 to do, I attempted them all, but feel I only got 11 right, but that’s full marks!
Long Questions – No surprises here, all the same questions came up and I did questions 1,3,5 and 6.
Q1 – Orthagraphic .. this was easy, plan, elevation, end view, surface s.. the same thing over and over again! I got on well in this one!
Q3. This was axonametric view, which is easy enough, it takes a while though! >< Oh well.. the complicated image didn’t help either. I didn’t do fantastic in this one.
Q4. Transformation Geomatry, my old pal, I got 69/70 on this in the mocks, the only thing that changes every year is the actual image. I got on well enough here, but I had some trouble with the rotation part :/
Q6. Ellipse and porabola.. this was a VERY fair question, my mind just decided to say ”hehe, let’s not work properly for him, it’ll be funny” . I messed up on this question.. and god am I pissed off! :/ Oh well as Noah and the whale said ” l i f e g o e s o n ”
Anyway, this exam was fair! And I got on well enough despite having the Mexican song from the doritos ad stuck in my head for the duration!
