    Do you actually do the papers first and then mark them or do you just read through the mark schemes and revise them?

    I fill in all the answers from the mark scheme on the first past paper then revise them. Then on the following papers i'll try and do it by myself and if i come across any new questions not asked in the first then i'll refer back to the mark scheme etc./

    Thanks, that's a really good way of revising via past papers and I'll apply that to most of my exams now! Thank you.

    I'm doing OCR ict. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about entity relationships? I'm struggling a tad with them, I understand one to many etc etc. But what I need to know is that, if the table contains a foreign key is that always the many part of the one to many relationship? For example if I have customer ID in customer table, and I wanted to link it to Employee ID, customer ID inside of employee table, would the employee table be the many link? Many thanks!

    found it nvm

    I thought that aswell before I sat the Jan paper haha !! I'm sure they wouldn't do it twice in a row? :P I hate all the legislations except DPA and CMA -_- You should really see that paper though it was quite different than usual, so maybe it may be similar?

    Hmmm interesting ... same here but at my school it was compulsory to do gcse ICT starting in year 8 and then if we did well we had the option to pick it instead of a gcse subject(bad bad choice)

    They don't really help me because I did most of them in preparation for January, so i know the answers for the questions already haha .. I did a few and got quite high like 94/120 in one(well high for me ) so hopefully I can get that A seeing as most of the time it is 75ish How about you?? (I hate the subject so much it's sooo boring :\)

    I'm AQA as well. Doing info 1 friday and Info 2 tuesday.
    Me too, but both for the second time, how stupid do I sound? Just totally freaked them, when I'm revising I can answer almost all pasted papers questions, but my mind just goes blank when I'm in the exam, and sometimes the wording they use throws me.

    Praying for a good grade this time though, as I worked my little butt off.

    1NF: data is atomic, no repeating fields, primary key
    2NF: 1NF and all non key items can be found out used the entire primary key (to remove dependencies on partial keys )
    3NF: 2NF and all non key items are fully dependent on the primary key (like school code and name doesn't depend on student ID so that is made into a different table)
