  • First year exams

    Hi my name is alan and I'm in my first year as a Maersk Engineer cadet. My exams are coming up shortly and I'm worried I may fail. If I do fail will I be out of the course and not get to go onto the sea phase. Any pointers as to what I should focus on

    Not sure what college you go to but Fleetwood you get at least one re-sit and I'm assuming that's the same for Engineers (I'm Deck.)

      Which college are you at? From what we've been told (which is in no way gospel!) to pass you have to get 40% for the college and 50% for your exemptions (if you are doing FD). Cannae quite remember the first phase syllabus but IIRC the most important/hardest ones were thermo and ship stab. Smash as many tutorial questions as you can get your hands on and you'll be fine. As for resits, at STC you get a resit during summer (and therefore during sea-phase...) which you can do when you get back, if needs be.
