    Hi everyone,

    i just wanted to know if anyone here is doing the WJEC ICT unit 3 written exam (GCSE) on the 13th? I'm really really stressed about it because my coursework marks are both C's. I have a B on my previous written, so i need to get at-least an A on this one. My teacher throughout hasn't been great, and i'm terrified of the exam coming up. If anyone else is doing it, could you reply and explain what is likely to come up?

    Cheers

    PS- i heard it is a new type of exam (great :eek:) has anyone got an idea what they mean by that?

    Yeah I'm also doing it. To be honest we haven't had a great deal of information on it other than just to ''revise the text books thoroughly''. And just a quick note did you sit the ICT Unit 1 on the 1st June?

    I know right. Due to it being a new spec aswell there is hardly any past material. No, i did Unit 1 in January i think, the written paper right?

    Unit 1 on the first was really easy hopefully this one will follow suit. Though I retook unit one as everyone thought it was really easy but then got grades 2 or 3 below what they expected.

    That was so easy. The grade boundaries are going to be so high! I finished an hour early. 2hrs 30 is far too long! How did everyone else find it?

    It was the golden triangle it was in our revision guide although no one in our exam got it and had to look afterwards. It was only one mark though so it doesn't really matter. Did you get the second bit about explaining it.

    To be fair though it was only two lines in the revision guide.

    how did you find the exam overall? I'm not sure how I did.... :s I hope the grade boundaries are lower than unit 1 was last year! (and that they actually mark the papers correctly this year...)
