4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Very busy until the last two weeks of placement. Which is understandable at a defence company. They didn't want to get me involved with anything and then have to leave.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

Responsibility was in my hands. Most of the projects were reliant on me, others I was just a member helping others. But I still had deliverables.
