IREX pass and a warning about tags
Toddyfooty created the topic: IREX pass and a warning about tags
Hi Bob and co.,
I passed IREX first go today after home studying your book and doing your online exams. I got 95% so safe to say i'm pretty stoked.
Something that left a bitter taste though was the way the invigilator hounded me about my AIP tags. She was certain that the way I had tagged was against the rules and made me remove multiple tags. Her issue was with references where the exact bold heading on the page didn't match up to what I had written. For example I had "Sector entries" for page ENR 1.5 - 27 but she wanted it removed because the title actually says "Entry from sector...". How on earth is that gaining an unfair advantage/cheating?! Another example was "Cross wind" for the ERSA conversion chart rather than "Wind component".. it had to be removed!
She also had an issue if I had put more than one topic per tag. The rule states "Page tags must not carry more than just the topic headings of the page or section" so I assumed that a tag could relate to more than one topic provided it was within the same section. Have you heard of this happening to anyone else? It really rattled me right before starting the exam and obviously made things more difficult to find after being so used to my tags.
Anyway, I got through so that's the main thing.
Thanks again for your help through the forum and all your books in general.
