    It is supposed to be hard, I got 79% (B) and apparantly I got the second the highest grade in the entire the country.

    I didn't find it that hard personaly but only 4 people on my course passed it and that was grades like D's. The other 26 people failed it completly.

    If you revise though you should be fine. I found that the AVCE was full of lazy tossers hence the very high failure rate.

    I am glad to see you have been working at it. What is you're stuck on exactly?

    A B is whicked in systems man, the college im at no1 has ever achived more than a B in systems analysis.

    I know what you mean about AVCE being full of dossers, it is in my class no1 hardey does any work during the lesson only a few who do, im one of them. IWith the dossers in class it is really to concentrate on the work ur doing since there is so much going on around you.

    Im really stuck at level 1 diagrams, I cannot get my head round it.

    Unit 5 is very hard although i find that if you complete unit 6 at the same time as 5 it does help.

    DFD diagrams are ackward but once you crack them they are not difficult to draw.

    Level 0 is a context digram which has one box called something like "run system" with all the inputs and outputs the system has running to and from it.

    Level 1 is where you spilt "run system" into the major processes and show how the data flows between them - one little rule is that you must have in the end the same number of inputs and outputs as level 0 you cant invent or remove ones. Processes at level 1 are things like - "generate report" and two generate report box would be an arrow with the required data on it.

    level 2 breaks down the processes in level 1 into more detailed drawings. So you would see exactly what processes are required to "generate report".

    This link here may help you as i have not taught this unit and dont have any notes on my website
