UKAB Help - somebody? ANYBODY?Watch
The task is called UKAB (imaginary exam board) remarks and you have to design a system for the monitoring of its post examination re-marks. There's too many details to list but if anyone has heard or done this i beg you to reply.
It's not that difficult, if you think logically.
All you need to do is create two database tables. One to store the remark details, such as candidate name, candidate number, the centre number, sub. ref code, original mark, original grade, etc and the other to store sub. ref code and the grade boundries.
If you are going to use a high level programming language, then I would reccommend Delphi, (or Pascal, but your program is not going to be very user friendly.) it's dead simple to use!
Then you need to think about how you are going to work out the grades using the grade boundries. You can make your program work out the grades automattically and add it to the database by writting few lines of code. (If you know how to do it.)
The other is your program needs to be able to produce hardcopies (print outs) or reports.
In order to do that, you have to link your main program with the database tables. Again you would need to write few likes of code to make your program print out particular reports when a button is clicked.
Hope that helps . (Sorry it's not very detailed.)
i'm doin it in access, better features an stuff to use than anything else. pluss i'm too f*kin stupid to know much bout any high level languages.
Don't reali get how to use visual basic in the database even.
keep looking at the points in the sheet for actual things it wants done (remember only screenshots are needed not necessarily a workin program)-so if u can figure how is should be done, it'll help even if u can't implement properly.
Maz, is beyond hard to use? I took a look at the site but i don't really get it. Isn't it for games? Also if its anything like pascal then i won't be able to use it, too complicated!
I have tried to do it in Access and VB. I can get the basics going, but theres things like validation shite and advanced stuff like that. I could probably do it after weeks and weeks of trying but I wish I could look at something similer, so I can work from it.
My teacher is a complete donkey, he expects us to already know how to use Access and high level languages.
I'm just gonna add this page to my favourites and hope some genius supplys this project (uploaded or sommit).
If I manage to do it, i'll add a reply linking you to a download for it.

If anyone is really struggling with something just try to be specific and I'll help you out.
BTW, is the project being marked or are you examined on it?
Man with the dogs do you know how to use pascal? thats the only programming program i have. Thanks
Are you sure your school doesn't have Delphi? The language is still pascal but it would be much easier to complete the task.
This is a final plea to anyone who has done this damn coursework.pleeeeeeease help
... well a few days ago I only knew how to drag and drop stuff from the objects menu onto the form (on MS Visual Basic) and now I've *almost* completed the project. All thats left to do is make it submit the re-mark info, and sort re-marks by a particular subject or centre. I used an MS Access database (which I needed help on from a friend :P).
I read some tutorials, got some scripts from http://vbcode.com and http://www.mvps.org/vbnet and then messed about. I chose VB cos its easy and more fun than doing it all in Accesss, so I recommend it!
When the project is complete, i'll upload the source code to a webserver so you can check it out.
