Assessment l Higher Level l Project 25% l Practical 25% l Theory 50% l Ordinary Level l Project30% l Practical30% l Theory40% Note: The Practical Test is common to both levels.
Textbook New Engineering Technology written by Lawrence Smyth and Liam Hennessy published by The Educational Company
Reasons to do Engineering Good reasons: l Did Metalwork or MT Wood and liked it. l Have good Technological abilities. l Like how the assessment is arranged. l Would like to study Engineering in College??? l Fancy a career in some area of Engineering. Not so good reasons: l Like the sound of the word Engineering. l It’s all about engines, vroom, vroom! l Friends are doing it and I don’t want to be left out.
