    What have you guys gotten in the other units and what do you want overall?

    I got:

    INFO 1 - E (48 UMS LOL, but retook it and it went so much better. Would like to say I got a B in it this time round)
    INFO 2 - A (87 UMS)
    INFO 3 - Approximately 61/70 raw marks (A) but subject to change when examiners mark it
    INFO 4 - Aiming for a mid A and since I need an A overall otherwise I most likely won't get into my firm.

    Praying for a standard paper which is similar to past papers. When I look at past papers I can confidently do them, but the 20 marker is the make or break for me :/ just hope it's something I don't struggle to answer

    Also does anybody know what the total UMS is for the four units - is it just out of 400? Since they're all different marks I'm not sure how to convert the raw marks into UMS, so I can't accurately predict what I need in INFO 4 for an A overall

    Info 1/2 out of 100
    info 3 out of 120
    info 4 is out of 80.
    Total is 400
    You need 320/400 for an A overall.

    I got B's in info 1 and 2(kinda winged it on the spot). Retook them both, went much better as i'd revised.

    If you took your AS exams last June or before you can calculate the UMS using your raw marks via this http://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administ...t-marks-to-ums

    Info 1 - 68/100 UMS (C)
    Info 2 - 93/100 UMS (A)
    Info 3 - Would like to get an A in this unit, particularly since I want an A overall in ICT
    Info 4 - No idea as my teacher has not informed me of the final mark I was given (of course it is subject to change with regard to the examiners), although the last time it had been marked (coursework was still incomplete at this point) my coursework was 60/70 raw marks

    I'm not too sure what I would like to come up in this paper to be quite honest - I'm not too bad when it comes to essays as I'm used to essay writing due to taking psychology, although I suppose it is dependent on the criteria of the questions being asked. Lets hope that we get a good paper

    At the bare minimum (70 UMS on both INFO1 and 2) you would need 76 UMS in INFO 3 which on last year's paper would have roughly 65 raw marks (77 UMS) - a mid C.

    Organisations can develop new systems by accessing data contained inlegacy systems. (1) This can be performed using screen-scraping (1), whereinformation from multiple legacy systems is re-displayed to users. (1)Price comparison websites (1) typically use screen-scraping to access thelegacy systems from multiple organisations.

    Guys this answer to a question in June 12...where it says screen scraping does that basically mean a screen shot?

    For a question that refers to testing, how do you guys know which types to talk about - since there are so many..?

    Requirements based testing
    Program testing
    System testing
    Regression testing
    Alpha testing
    Beta testing
    Hardware testing
    Software testing
    Functional testing
    User testing
    Operational testing
    White box testing
    Black box testing


    Way too many types, can you use any of them to answer a generic question about testing or are there keywords that tell you which to talk about?
    THIS, cannot get my head round this, might have to make a stupid song haha.

    Discuss the implications of possible future developments and future uses of ICT. Include in your answer the impact future developments may have on the way organisations are run.

    This is a 20 marker on the June 2012 paper.

    Any points to answer this?

    How many marks can I afford to lose to get an A overall in this paper?

    I got a high A in unit 1, I think a low A in unit 2, teacher hasn't told me my mark but said it is a B or higher (so let's assume it's exactly a B) - what grade would I need to get in this paper to get an A overall?

    Anybody have notes on future development?

    Not the whole unit, just new/emerging technologies/future tech which we could talk about? This question appears all the time so would be good if we discussed I think!

    You would need to get a mid high B in info 3 to get an A overall. Here is the breakdown for each unit and the total amount of marks you need.
