Haven't got our results yet. May I ask where you are roughly?
I didn't think it was too bad, just basically the questions from the 2391 that were related to Periodic Inspections. Looks like they just split the 2391 in half to me.

Thanks, just curious. I checked and yes I passed. Be a bit sad otherwise as I teach it! Thought I'd do the exam just to see what it was like.

both the online multi guess(easy) and written are closed book. The practical they will provide you with regs book.


You need to know the difference between initial and periodic.

Practice writting down how to carry out safe isolation and how to test a circuit.

In my exam it asked me to write down how to do a Ze test and it also asked me to write down how to do a Zs test on a radial circuit.

Time is short, write as fast as you can. learn the tests and learn the inspections.In my exam 30% of the questions were about inspection. Look at the EICR inspection schedule and learn 5 from each section

dont waste your money unless you can spend 6 hours a week revising. Dont rely on the course to get you a pass your need to put in effort in your own time.

Only me and 3 others out of 18 pass the written.

Its just a test of memory , you dont need to be a tech wizz.

For me it was one on one. The assessor sat behind me watching but he was nice chap so not too bad.

For me again I felt the time was short, I had to inspected and test two distribution boards and fill out all the paper work. The main board was a three phase board and the other was a small board fed by a sub main from the main board.

I also had to identify faults from pictures and give them either c1,c2,c3.

I nearly run out of time, so again put your foot down hang around.

I got a look at the recent 2394 paper. before I was guessing they would just split the old quick fire questions and scenario questions up and ask you 6 questions on a scenario and rely on the online gola test for the quickfire questions.

C&G have split the wirtten into 2 sections both with 3 questions, the first three are general questions on inspection and testing, some questions about IP ratings, safe zones etc all pretty standard stuff.

The last 3 questions were based on a given scenario. from what ive seen they will always ask you to list the documents you will use. drawing a Ze or Zs path is also a well used question, comes up all the time so revise that one.

you sound like your putting the hours in outside college, im sure youll do fine in the exam

GOOD LUCK
