    i was just wondering if anyone on here has any previous examples of their AS analysis and design section of their coursework our college has provided us with a partial example of an exemplar piece of work obviously a different scenario but i find having the example gives me peace of mind that im at least on the right track, so if anyone could help out in filling the bits that are missing that'd be great, ^_^

    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.

    I did the exact same course. Just a tip: this course requires a huge quantity of work (alot of it is easy but there's just a vast quantity), a good rule of thumb is if it's under 100 pages you've gone wrong somewhere. For the A Level you're looking at closer to 150+.

    Woaah???? 100 pages?????? OMG... That's just insane. I currently have 8 pages, it's 5000 words and I'm up to objectives. We haven't started the coding yet, and I still have to do graphical user interface, gonna be 2 more pages. Oh I also have objectives and events table, which is 5-6 more pages. But it's definitely not gonna come out as 100 pages.... That would be like a hundred thousands of words, seeing as for 8 pages I have 5000 words. OMG. I know this thread was old but seeing this reply I just went omfg mode.

    Hope you sill this and will reply with some explanation. I'm really stunned about what you said... 100 pages. Just wow.

    300 pages long? Seriously but :wtf:
    Does it include the coding?
    Does it include evaluation and testing?
    What takes the most pages? Because really, 300 pages... That doesn't sound impossible. I will ask my teacher as he is examiner for that board.

    I got 65/70 with ~45 pages. That figure does include the programming aspect, an annotated printout is part of the course.
