Yes. You took LEW 8 written as well? For LEW 8 what is the scope asked?

Did you attempt PPE in year 2019? I find it very difficult to answer the paper as I am not in the field of consultancy, did not do much design/calculation more on the site testing. Didnt make it for ethics as well, now looking around for notes from IES to approach their questions. Would be happy if anyone could share.

I got my LEW 8 in year 2019. Written exam is less tedious than FEE, have to read up on electricity act, rg1, rg5 and know how to do small installation testing.

I have not attempted PPE before , this year will be my 1st time attempting PPE.

I intend to use my NTU EEE notes to study for PPE. Got a module EE4503. The part on ethics i intend to go for the relevant IES course, but haven't seen any this year

Your time is written + interview tgt for lew8? Rg1 is the electrical worker regulation? Rg5 is electrical installation regulation? Small installation as in <45kVa?

I think what was taught in EE4503 is only very surface. So have to gain some experience on the job to understand it. There is a IES ethics course (8th run) on 10 March 2021 but no more slot already. Not sure if you have any friends going?

Yea, written follow by interview, should be the same as now. Yes, RG1 and RG5. Electricity act also impt. Yea 45kVA, those test can be applied to 500kVA installation (which is within your licence capacity).

Ok, I only know some basic electrical design. Not familiar with lightning protection as I am not working in consultant firm. Sizing of generator, emergency lighting, fire alarm, ss538 Not familiar also.

I have to check with my friends or colleagues for the ethics course. If they are willing to share...I do remember there is a ethics guideline somewhere. Let me try to find.

Nowadays need pass written then qualify for interview.

The written test got test on High Tension? Or how to calculate tripping time of IDMTL relays? Or design of 150kVA board, etc? Or things like cs3 cs5 forms?

Means need to know SI and PI test and E/F setting? 500kVA most probably will use these. . Going to faint already.

My time in 2019 also same, pass exam then wait for interview.
High tension not in scope since it is outside LEW8 capacity.
I think calculating IDMTL relay should also be out of the question since it is relay specs dependent.
I only remember we are asked about designing switchboard but designing 500kVA is out of our limit, only can operate.

I see no worries for you since you are able to list out those technical knowledge of what LEW8 should have, just brush up those and more importantly is the Electricity act/RG1/RG5 that every LEW has to know and follow.
