    Overall it was pretty good, most of it was good apart from the last question on Section A about design? Had no idea on that, what did everyone put? And what did people say in the last question of databases in section B?

    Very glad I predicted the distributed computing question too!

    That was the only crappy question I thought, how did you find the rest of it?!
    It was horrible right !? My heart dropped when I saw it so I left it until last and talked about privacy, security and abuse of data

    The rest I found relatively difficult tbf , I kept missing one mark like for example I could only name one distributed application , and I only wrote 3 poor MIS factors , 2 choices of network and 3 requirements for online websites because I only know revised certain ones and they put them in the question to not include them which upset men! So I know I've lost marks there.. How did you find it !?

    For the design I wrote:
    Design of output
    Design of house style and ethos
    Design of processes
    And Design of hardware and software which I wasn't sure about

    I did that too, then included security processes, design of file and data structures. And then pointed out that it should follow in line with the User Requirements. Its pretty much about the Design section of the database coursework, but this question was the QWC I think..? So I saved it till last wasted 15min to write a page for it.

    Hey everyone ^^" That exam was awwwwful for me, it started off so well until it got to the distributed computing question and asked for 2 examples. I gave cancer research as mine.

    E-commerce stuff afterwards was fine, but I ********ted the SDLC question and that 3 mark database question about entity, attribute and relationship definitions was buuuullll!

    so if I gave them more examples that they need they will take off my points or just ignore that? E.g. more examples how HCI couldhelp disabled people(or someting like that) or I put 3 examples of tables in section B instead of 2 because I wasn't sure about one? So they will give me 0 points for whole question even if this is right? I don't understand.

    No they won't give you 0 makes, they will just take the first 2 examples that you give and ignore the last one. Say if they asked for 4 examples and you put 5, they would only take the first 4 you wrote down

    No not at all dont be silly - they just advise that so the spaces between questions are more vivid but they will know your answers to different questions obviously by the way u word it ahah !

    Yeah i did the same i left that question till last! That was probably the worst question out of them all. They were really harsh on what you weren't allowed to say this year, as in either cost or size of the organisation. I did the same for the distributed question one too, I couldn't think of a second example so you're not the only one! Other than that i thought it was an okay paper, just hope WJEC aren't too harsh!

    I wrote way too much, ran out of time. Left 23 worth of marks unanswered. Don't need many marks for a B thankfully. Can only hope I've done enough to secure a decent amount of marks.

    So let's say I did what you did. I only mention one application of disturbed computing. I lose one mark

    I do it again for MIS. I mention three points each for good and poor, not four. That means another one mark lost?

    So that's 2 marks?
