Didn't find it too bad tbh, what kind of stuff did you all put for the 6mark questions
4. Re: EDEXCEL GCSE ICT Unit 1 Exam, Friday 1st June 2012 - 9am
It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, the 6 marker with the 12-15 year olds I started talking about inappropriate content and staying safe online (ie talking to people you don't know etc)

The last one I started to talk about staying safe online, cyberbullying and began to talk into the digital divide. I'm not too sure how well I did though, what did you all put for the Games console disabled devices one?

And any chance of anyone having an unofficial mark scheme?

what's everyone's guesses for grade boundaries for that paper?
6. Re: EDEXCEL GCSE ICT Unit 1 Exam, Friday 1st June 2012 - 9am
Based on the January 2011 exam, which I thought was the same sort of difficulty I would go on the basis of:

A* = 62
A = 54
B = 46
C = 39
D = 34
E = 29
F = 25
G = 21
U = 0

These are raw marks, and aren't necessarily the grade bounderies, they have been taken from an old mark scheme

that's a bit reassuring actually because i was worried it may be
A* - 72
A - 64
B - 56
C -48 etc.
8. If you got an A* in the cab you only needed like 60% for an A* overall so don't panic

I thought it was quite an easy paper. What was a disadvantage of hands free motion sensor gaming?

I did this back in January ... and you can count on Edexcel for low grade boundaries
57 last year!

Hey everyone, hope you are all well. According to Raasib21, my grade bounderies taken from an old mark scheme weren't far off at all. I've quoted from the different thread so you can see them all.
