    Im scared toooo! My whole class doing it but compared to Info 01 and Info 02 theres A LOT more to learn and it being a synoptic paper, we kinda need to remember stuff from last year :s I havent done much revision though, just cant seem to bring myself to do anything! Tooo boring and i agree, WAAY too much to learn.

    I'm doing it aswell tomorrow and have been trying to revise today! I doubt there will be much from last year to be honest... The case study seems ok but I really expect we will have to draw an entity relationship diagram or data flow diagram at some point in the exam, although I doubt that will relate to the case study...

    I'm doing it as well, and I can do alright regarding the content, but whats gonna get me is the diagrams, as I seem to be crap at them and the essay question at the end. I can only seem to get 13 marks for it Max!

    When I'm doing the essay question, if it is 20 marks, I write twenty points and always do an introduction and conclusion.

    20 points? Is it actually possible to write down 20 points AND discuss them all in the time given?

    My teacher has given us some diagrams relating to the Cast Study to remember because we're all hopeless at them! He gave us a 'Context Diagram' 'System Flow Chart' and 'Data Flow Diagrams' they're the ones he thinks are likely to come up, and Entity Relationship (but he's not so sure how they can relate it to the case study, so he thought maybe in Section 2 instead)

    Yeah im sure a diagram will defo come up, but i seem to SUCK at them! Theres at least 8marks for a Context or Data Flow.. Yeah Biggsx How can you even think of 20 points?! I can barely come up with 10 tbh! Although it does depend on the type of question. We have 2hours for this exam, which i think it plenty of time to get everything done..

    My Teacher thinks its ridiculous we need to know diagrams because people in the industry have to go on week long courses to learn how to do them. There was another one, Context Diagram but I believe my teacher stole it from me last lesson to copy (yes, he copied off of me! ahah) and I'm yet to retrieve it. Hope they help though. They relate to the case study for the sales representatives
