Pre-work for 25th June
A principal focus for this event will be to demonstrate how a Principles tester validates interlocking functionality for a typical route and point; students (particularly those intending to offer Control Tables (CT) within Module 3) should come prepared with their attempt at the CTs for the nominated routes and points for the layout attached to this posting. The Controls can then be ticked off as the testing proceeds.

Other elements of the event will be more general. To give a flavour of Past Questions of various IRSE Exam Modules for which useful background knowledge could be expected to be gained at this event, see the other attachment. To be clear, we are NOT intending to give model answers to any of these at the event but there should be plenty of relevant stuff to help with at least elements of most. Those not intending to perform CTs should consider the range of the various questions prior to the event and actually have a go at answering a couple of the relevant ones to their area of expertise. You'll then know "what you don't know" and want to ask questions to find out about on the day.

Even those attending the event but with no intention of sitting for an IRSE module in 2008 should also make an attempt to answer some questions; even if you find it a bit of a struggle it ought to give an idea about what the exam is all about.

In the exam there is typically 30 minutes per written question- obviously you are learning, so it will take longer, but you are expected to turn up at the event with a few attempted answers.

The event organisors suggest that you use this site to post your answer and share your efforts and learning under this thread. If you do that in good time, there's a better chance of us addressing the issue which interests you particularly at the event.

Hope to see some response in the not-too-distant future,
