Hi, I am currently resitting applied ict unit 8 and 10 in june, i had to resit as last year one of my teachers was away ill for around 3month which put a big strain on everyone. As a result my overall mark was a grade C however I needed a grade B to get into my first choice university. Which meant i have had to stay back another year.

However the same teacher who was off ill last year is teaching me for the resit but she has AGAIN been off for the last 2month :mad: so i am now thinking this is going to ruin my chances of getting into uni again, could anyone who has previously done these units offer any help ? it would be much appreciated thanks !

Have you looked at the sample portfolios at http://ict.edexcel.org.uk/home/eportfolios/samples/ Most of the units are there (8 and 10 are), as well as comments on the marking scheme from markers.

Its not really something I can help you on, one seems more like project management and the other more like the dt work I did at school than general IT work lol

Mabrookes has pointed you to the correct examples. Read the specification (on Edexcel's website) carefully, especially the section below the marking grid for each unit. For a "B", you need to achieve mid to high Band 2. Don't waste time on beautification of eportfolio, except for the actual product bit in Unit 10. It's the documents that are important. You didn't say what state your coursework is in. If you can make your questions more specific, I may be able to give you some advice. I teach both of these units.
