passed!! Thank god for that, dismall statistics but a pass is a pass, 75% part 1 and 50% part 2, Feel could have got higher mark but as I didn't have my calculator with me, thought it was in my folder but must have fell out somewhere along the line still managed to pull through.

2330 Level 2 and 3 done for me now, next step 2381 + 2391 as well as NVQ 3 on top of HSL exam for JIB card, oh the joys of it all.

Well done, don't feel too down about the pass, the Level 3 exam despite what may be said on these forums from time to time, is a very difficult exam indeed and there have been a huge amount of failures this year.

You will have no difficulties with the 2381 at all or the ECS test and the NVQ 3 is (usually for adults) quite an easy process. The 2391 requires some study but I recommend getting a bit of experience first anyway.

Onwards and upwards!

I am curious as to where these questions came from. Some are incomplete, some are ambiguous and some are pretty irrelevant.

For instance, (1) speed control of a 3 phase induction motor is achieved by varying the frequency an inverter. Any other method is 500 years old.

(2) A capacitor is there to provide phase displacement, not "increased" phase displacement. "increased" suggests that it is already displaced to some extent which, it is not.

(3) D

(4) Constant speed

(5)Badly worded but I think it's alluding to the stator

(6)Again, not worded very clearly. Whats a "thermal trip"? the overload? I suspect so ergo it's thermal protection.

I'll go and have my tea now, maybe you should be sourcing some better questions for the exam, all the books on my website have better quality and more relevant questions on them.

Best of luck with the resit.

I have to say nsambrook alot of these question are very much badly worded, however that was exactly how they were on the exam, many of those questions were from many students that had failed many times but still could not find the answers as the question just wasn't clear enough.

I had a pack given to me by my tutor with all the questions people had through 2330 301 exam which did help me with what to expect but didn't help as wasn't clear and Trevor Linsley advanced gave me great help but yet wasn't 100% clear with motors, well for my brain and those questions, but hey ho have passed and thats all that counts, NVQ 3 portfolio working on now and then 2381 but wondering if I should wait for 17th? or sit the 16th exam still thinking about that one.

You are probably right. The City and Guilds have reviewed all those who haven't passed over the last 12 months and have changed some grades.

They also have mentioned that they will be changing some of the more badly worded questions so it looks like you will have been part of the guinea pig program for the Guilds. They are also allegedly going to change the scheme of work so that those of us who have to deliver it have some idea as to what we should be teaching.

Blimey there is hope for us yet, did feel abit of a guinea pig through out the course also felt sorry for tytors having lack of direction from city and guilds, I'm happy I've done my first part and waiting for 17th edition to print, also have been thinking about PAT testing if would be worth my time?

Lots of directions to head into, main thing is finding the work as long as that keeps coming my way I'm happy

Personally I haven't done the PAT course, I think it is aimed at people who do it regularly and although money can be made, I always hated doing it. There is very little call for it at our place and it hasn't run for some years.

I'd probably hold now for the 17th, you've done the hard work and right route in my opinion now get on and earn some cash

Bit confused on somethign with this one:

11. A 400v 50Hz has a line current of 50A and 0.8 lagging, The power dissipated will be


PF=0.8
IL=50A
VL=400V

P=/3 VL X IL X PF
Is that the right formula?
I've calculated in to different ways, first way:

P=/3 400v X 50a X 0.8= this seemed to give a syntax error on my calculator?

When i did it a 2nd way:
400v x 50a x 0.8=16000

Is this the right way? and does 50hz come into this at all?

No hertz doesn't come into it and you are doing it properly, at least in so much as you have the right formula anyway.

Instead of doing the square root of 3, use 1.732 instead or put the square root of 3 into brackets first.

Also need a formula please ? A current in a coil changes from 5 amps to 2 amps in 0.05 seconds and induces a voltage of 30 v in the coil . The inductance of the coil is?
