    anyone else on here doing A2 level ICT coursework at teh moment using access.

    I'm finding it really hard to use access as ive never realled used it before.

    My project is to make a system for a drving school. I would very much appreciate it if anyone else who is doing a similar system to reply to this thread and i can have a chat wiv u bout it.


    Theres some examples of coursework on www.revisecomputing.co.uk or .com try both It's just the write up but you always get more marks for it. I did a stock control system for chem lab at my college! I remember seeing an example of a level cwk for a driving school. If u hv alevel Bs in your college, try looking for A-Level computing by PM Heathcote she also does a A-level coursework book for Access as I assume your probably using it! It's really good!. Look on the inside cover for the publishers site, go to it they have load of physical coursework that you can download and look at. I can't find my copy off hand!


    yes dat ict coursework is well hard..i got a week 2 do it..in rough..i jus finsihed my As coursework dat woz a doctor surgery using access, so i got some xperience but its still hard..i dont know wot 2 do..

    yeah where are they on the net? i cant find any sites with specimen projects

    If you can't find your way around it here are links to some files they have on there of things done in Access in 3 versions. I don't know if this helps !? They are all exe files that are self extracting.

    just used excel last year, i'm at a sixth form college tho, not a school

    I got 3 days to do it even tho I only atarted ICT a month ago and every1 else in the class has had about 3 and more help. Hopefully I will get til April when I was told I'd have til!

    Found dead line is just over a month away, and my teach is safe tho he hasn't helped me 1 bit since I joined my college, it's all me but I have great experience in Access, so I could help any of yall.


    Oh yeah, I got A in AS Computin last year and that's harder than this so I'm not worried 1 bit about exams either, as I got 54/60 in the mock WITHOUT any revision cos I didn't know we had it.

    i know how hard it is my project is a control system on access based on the leisure centre that i work in my end user is my boss he has asked me to do it and will pay me for the finished product what about u ?

    im in serious trouble! got 2 weeks to finish it, only done some tables, this PM Heathcote book is useless, it'll take me more than 2 weeks 2 complete it, i got no chance!!!

    hey im doin really gud in my IT coursework.....HAHA shame some of u arent. GIMPAZOIDS......

    There's Database book called Database Projects in Access for Advanced Level, by Julian Mott and Ian Rendell. You can get if from Amazon for about £10. There's a system there based on a driving school which may be of some use to you! Good Luck.
