Yeah I've just come across a bit about design reviews.
I've never seen a question on them and I've only just come across them now when I've been going through what's on the spec... Simple enough though

An easy 4 marks for learning the definition of Data Warehouse and Data Mining (w/ Example) aswell, WJEC seem to love that question.

You'll be fine I'm sure

Just finished my last bit of revision on Computer Languages. I'm feeling quite confident. Hopefully the exam will go well.

Oh right yeh, It's good to add, inheritance and encapsulation for Object Oriented (These all came up on the last question for the Jan paper)


4G - Features like data manipulation, making queries, natural language interface, report generators, code generators, high level language (low skill involved)......

Done this. We got a very bad teacher who did not mark coursework throughout the year (Was same last year with different teacher). So the whole class got pretty bad coursework marks. Test was pretty good tbh. No strangely worded questions all seemed to be to the point questions.

Pretty good, loved that Binary Tree question and the one on expert systems. BNF and Syntax diagram one was a gift aswell. Didn't have a clue what Speech Synthesis was, so I just winged it, after a quick look on google seems my guess was spot on, I can sleep easy now with 4 Weeks until my next exam.

I thought the paper seemed pretty good/easy, a lot of people were complaining about it being hard when coming out of the exam though. Last year the CG1 paper was easy but the grade boundaries were still low, so I doubt they'll be very high this time either.

Last year your teacher marked it as you went? I didn't even know they were allowed to do that, ours offered no advice and didn't mark any of it until it had been fully handed in/marked both times (CG2 & CG4), she always said it was "against the rules" while asking for help/opinions :confused:.

Do you mean you only need 54/130 UMS for the CG3 exam? If so, while nobody can say for sure yet since they haven't set the grade boundaries, you should only need 40/100 maximum (closer to 35/100 if the grade boundaries are similar to the January paper)
