Told you I'd fail part 3 today

Got 3/3 - had pst 7 - The result was fair and examiner was good - no excuses from me, I just wasn't good enough on the day!

Here were my main problems incase anyone wants to learn from them / comment on them - advice will be appreciated:

Phase 1 - Approaching Junctions to Turn Left and Right

I under-instructed; After three goes at turning left I let her do it independently - problem was the next turning was a right turn!

I identified and analysed poor positioning on turning but failed to remedy

Used duals to stop moving off as she hadn't checked blind spot - telling her to wait would have been better.

Phase 2 - Pedestrian Crossings & Use of Signals

Dual controls again - this time not using them when I should - told her to stop 5/6 times when someone was on crossing - should have dualled her!

Pulled her over to lecture about signaling too early but was too easy on her when she didn't signal to leave a roundabout - need to prioritise more.

Let her stop on a zebra crossing when van infront was waiting to turn right - I told her that she should have planned to stop before zebra when that is what I should have made her do!


Basically I need to improve my awareness of what is going on around the car - I'm sure I'm better than that with my real pupils  but it's slightly different on the day!

Feel better about the whole thing after taking a test though - looking foirward to second attempt![/u]

Re: Told you I'd fail part 3 today

Oh yeah, forgot to mention:

After I pointed out a fault that SE had made, she asked me (as the pupil) if she would have failed for that.

I said "It depends on the examiners mood"  :oops:

Sounds like Phase 1 went better than Phase 2.
Could have got a 4 there I suppose if you had rectified the right turn position.

Fun and games at zebras on Ph.2... "if only" must be plaguing you now  :x

Thanks for the honest info, it always helps the rest of us.

Onwards and upwards as they say, my turn on Monday... I was looking forward to my root canal treatment at the dentists more!!!

Delta, sorry to here you didn't pass, but thanks for the honest post. This type of info is invaluable for the rest of us on our part 3 studies.

BTW - where did you take your part 3?

Regards

Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience!

Rauxaman,

Funny you should say about the dentists; when everyone asks me how the Part 2 went I described it as 60 minutes in a dentists chair!!

Good luck for Monday!!  tongue

Its always positive when you learn from your mistakes - you'll fly through next time - atleast you can be honest about your performance and not blame the S.E.  :twisted:

Thanks mags

The pink licence has definately been a massive help in preparing myself - even though I failed I still think I did miles better than I would have without a pink.

Going for it 100% next time - 22nd September!

Good luck with your pink licence - it's nerve racking at first but after the first few days I really got into ot.

Re: Told you I'd fail part 3 today

thanks for the post delta, reading posts like yours really helps me realise that the examiners are normal human beings and not two headed monsters (!).
My pt3 is on Wednesday 29th at Exeter and this weekend is pure revision and core competancies, I think I'm just about ready.
This forum has been totally invaluable, although my instructor is amused every time I start a sentence with 'i read online'.
