1. Hey,
My IGCSE ICT 0417/12 Paper is on the May 18th. Can anyone tell me the most important things which might com up and which areas i should focus on. Please ask your teachers to tell you what the important things. Thanks
2. Just Make sure that know all the topic from the syllabus including the new ones like GPS,rfid etc and the new units added. Follow a book according to the 2016 syllabus (we use Cambridge igcse ICT by Graham brown and David Watson)and you are done mostly. Btw how was your paper3?
3. Paper 3 was quite easy to my perspective but I missed out on changing the currencies for the local countries in the spreadsheet task. That would cost me a few marks. Thanks

Do you mean putting the symbols for the local currencies? I don't know whether my formula was right in which we had to multiply the sum by exchange rate because ideally the conversion rates were from us dollar to local currencies but it was the opposite.Other wise the paper was pretty easy and good to know you found it easy too. For the theory part do lots of past papers but dont forget to revise the new topics added.Cheers.

Yes I mean that, yea it was suppose be divided by 5 but our teacher said it was okay because we needed to do what the paper asked us, probably could be a small mistake in the paper. Yea the theory ill need to work on some past papers but the the two paper markschemes will be out in a few weeks then we can check. Good luck for paper 1! Cheers.
6. Same to you!
