Design of Bridges (CI9-STR-35) Exam Petition
This petition is about the Design of Bridges exam that took place on 3rd May 2019. The points below outline the general issues that may be mutual between the students that have taken the exam.
- Tutorials were not provided for some of the exam questions (Bearing Reactions (Q1) & Suspension Bridge (Q2)). Where Q1(a)(b) within the exam was based on the individual knowledge and background of the student which was not covered within the course material.
- Some of the questions within the exam were not correctly explained which makes it difficult to answer the question. (or not explained in lecture as the course material did not touch on several topics).
- The level of difficulty was far greater than expected of those who had done previous past papers and the tutorials. Even the students that would have thorough understanding of the course content may have faced difficulty.
- Distribution of the questions and the time that is given to answer these questions were not enough to complete and reflect back on.
Feel free to add comments to outline any points that you have personally struggled with and that have been missed.
