    What did people put for issues of testing question. I thought that was so confusing.

    I wrote about volume testing, network testing, usability testing and reliability testing. Is that wrong?

    Also does anyone remember all the questions or have a list?

    Lmao, this made me laugh.

    Exam wasn't all that bad for me, I will admit it was a difficult exam, and I expect the grade boundries will be low as a lot of people struggled.

    For the testing question, it did say "large" ICT systems, so regression testing etc is correct and so is beta (or acceptance in this case) and alpha testing. However using functional, intergratopnal, module etc would have been sufficient too as they are required for any system development regardless of the size. If you added any reference to corrective maintainence to correct bugs not found in testing you'll get marked too.


    I was disappointed in the lack of course related content in this exam, which is why I believe boundries will be low.

    My least favorite question was the one about the controlling the consumables, it was an 8 marker.

    Try not to worry, nothing we done but hope for low grade boundries now.

    *facepalm* I didn't put anything like that for the testing one..I was talking about cost, size and organisation structure Oh dear..

    And the consumables one what a *****, I quite liked the essay though, but I think that wasn't a great paper because of the wording, I spent so long trying to figure out the questions...and they were too long!

    yoooooo, that paper was next level, testing one i wrote about test harnesses, volume testing, performance testing etc how large organisation systems have to be thoroughly tested etc, how the fizzle r u expected to answer such stupidly worded questions, aqa examiner reports 'students fail to answer the question', well write questions which require your knowledge of the spec not questions that are vague as ****, time management issues per usual didn't get to fully answer the last question, too many long questions and the bulk printing question WTFFFFF, hopefully ive got 70 ums to get my A overall, trust me this paper will have low grade boundaries

    Part B was definitely a *****, part A was fine though... Except from server virtualisation, literally wrote nothing HA. I really need an A, just hope that the grade boundaries are low...

    WTF was with the consumables one? struggled on that...! But loved the 15 mark questions as well as the last one. The testing one was nice too, i think the issues was referring to defects such as functionality defects, usability etc. It wanted you to point out that testing is important to eliminate these issues...

    I told myself I wouldn't come and have a look at how everyone else found it but I had to have a look haha. Anyone find it easier than last year/jan?

    Yeah there was... Something like

    'A company has asked an external software developing organisation to create a bespoke system. Discuss the support available after the installation' or something...

    I spoke about training, maintenance and support because I didn't revise support much...

    Ohhh yeah I remember that now! I actually really panicked for a moment then! But I thought it was asking more about the factors to be considered when choosing support so I didn't really write about the types of support oops

    70 to get an A?! Lucky! I don't even know how much I needed because my teacher won't tell me what I got in my coursework! And I seem to be the only one who didn't go into the details of testing..*sigh*

    I didn't finish on time either, so my answer the Purging and the software packages one were half done

    Was this your first take?
