    Hi, I don't understand this question at all and the mark scheme doesn't make any sense to me. Can you please help me by explaining it. I dont understand how it only asks for 4 but is worth 18 marks, and if youre wondering, its in the winter 2014 paper. I didnt even know you could get 18 markers. Thank you.

    8. Describe four distinctly different uses of ICT for home entertainment. For each, describe specific
    advantages and disadvantages.

    Ah yes that lovely old chestnut.

    Basically, it works in this way

    1 mark for making the use
    1 mark for a description of the use
    1 mark for an advantage use
    1 mark for a disadvantage of use

    Do that four times (four different uses) and that gives 16 marks

    Quality of written communication is 2 marks

    A year of intense studying of the mark schemes and many emails between myself and the wjec (teacher too) to clear up any of my doubts.

    You can trust my advice as I'm certain it's reliable. I've done basically every single question like twice or more in most cases

    Maybe a vlookup or absolute addressing and 3d referencing.

    All the same if you know your spreadsheet then you will be ready for anything

    As for the first four marks I'd say car crash analysis as it hasn't been up in a while

    For expert system you have to know 3 ad and 2 disadvantages or 3ad and 3 disadvantages ... it varies you have to know the componentsknowledge base , inference engine and User interface Knowledge base : a collection of rules or instructions derived from the human expert Inference engine : The main processing element of an expert system User interface : is the method by which the expert system interacts with the user

    It's the fetching of data from another worksheet ie: getting price from cell d26 on the stock details page and having it shown on the sales invoice page

    I would assume that the simulation modelling question may be about "how models are created"
    Somewhat similar to the 2013 summer exam on Q9. However, instead of asking in context of weather forecasting; it may be focused on flight simulation or in terms of crash analysis. There's a lower chance of mathematical modelling appearing this year.

    There's an amplification of the WJEC's topic of Simulation Modelling which I can confirm that has not yet appeared:
    "Issues relating to hardware used for simulation modelling, including parallel and distributed processing" - They could ask a direct question about that too.

    The rest of section B only requires you to apply your knowledge of your spreadsheet to the variation of questions; which makes it tougher to predict. Thus, it is vital that you pay close attention to how the questions are worded for the spreadsheets.
