# WJEC AS ICT Exam 6th June 2016 watch

1. (Original post by OwenSallows)
76 marks = 69 UMS
20 marks = 29 UMS
This equals 98 UMS
240 UMS is a C, which includes A2.
120 UMS would equal a C from AS
You need 33 marks to get the bare minimum of a C from this paper as you need an extra 22 UMS, which is 13 extra marks from your paper last year (20+13). I am pretty sure this is correct i could be wrong haha
how did you work this out?

how did you work this out?
https://www.wjecservices.co.uk/MarkToUMS/
For AS, IT1 and IT2 and A2 being IT3 and IT4, you can see the raw mark next to the UMS mark.
The UMS is out of 400, you have to work out the percentages shown on this webite:
https://www.wjecservices.co.uk/MarkT...rkDocument.pdf shown on page 2, as page 1 is GCSE. You find out the UMS from each part of the course and then add it up. Hope this helps

69 marks = 57 UMS
An A would be 160 UMS
You need 103 UMS from the exam, which is 62 marks.

bear in mind the exam boundaries vary year by year. coursework never seems to change though with full ums always being 80

bad idea. online betting, online booking are all classed as 'illustrated use of the internet'

They will likely totally ignore one of them and you will lose four marks.

I use: Music downloads, Games on a device, Social networking and mobile phones.

And if you're not sure on those, interactive TV and MP3 usage are pretty simple to understand!
9. For weather forecasting is this fine ;

For weather forecasting the models are created by collecting data such as large number of measurements such as pressure , temperature and humidity.All of these informations would be coming readings all around the world bith the help of sattelites and balloons. An advantage of this model is that it can produce a 6 day forecast in one hour which is really efficient. However , the disadvantage would be that large range forcasts can't be 100 percent accurate in predictions.

Have you done the GCSE?

Wish I did a level maths early.
16. Hi guys, I hope you don't mind my input.
I have some predictions of what will come up as the following topics haven't come up since the June 2011 paper. A new specification is being introduced next year, so WJEC should clear these topic areas up.

Topic 4- Data Error Types- Transcription, Transposition and Data Processing errors
Topic 5- Limitations of Data Processing Systems
Topic 8- LAN's and WAN's
Topic 9- HCI requirements
Topic 10- Health and Safety
Topic 11- Relational Databases and Flat-file systems
17. What are the features of a DTP?
18. why is ICT in the home crossed out in the theory notes
19. (Original post by Rawr97)
I have attached past papers from 2006 to 2008 if anyone requires them or are experiencing trouble finding them. Despite them being from the older course, they are still of some use as there are questions which are also in the current specifications which they have not yet asked in the 2009-2015 series of exam papers.
why is ICT in the home crossed out on theory notes

why is ICT in the home crossed out in the theory notes
Are you talking about mine? I crossed out ICT Home personally because I've memorised an answer since 2015 (Creating music/composition,Mp3, games and social neworking); and database systems because its straight forward. Mark scheme for Home Entertainment is pretty self-explanatory anyway.
