AQA Decision 2 Cascade/Gantt Diagram Question

    When constructing a cascade/gantt diagram, is it acceptable to draw the diagram with activities along the Y axis, or do you have to draw boxes with the activities inside them? I can never seem to get the correct gantt profile by doing it the second way, but I can easily understand the first method.

    For example, can they be of this type, or do they have to be of the type in the attached image?

    Any help will be appreciated

    This kinda gets me too. I've seen your example somewhere, I think in AQA mark schemes (maybe it's the early ones?), or perhaps its a textbook.

    If i were you I'd email AQA, they can answer this definitively.
