    Could you all please help my brother by telling him how hard it is, what modules you take etc.

    At the school he is in, (he is currently in 3rd year) only several people get to do ICT GCSE, as it is a year early, and is done at lunchtimes I think...

    Thanks alot

    Depends on the board. If it's Edexcel you have to do 4 pieces of coursework for full course. It's usually a selection between spreadsheets, databases, web design, DTP etc. The written paper has one section of multiple choice, and several other written sections. I do short course though but it's still relatively straightforward.

    Well, sometimes. In our case we do it over two years but with half the lesson time of full course GCSEs.

    i did the double award on the AQA board, and came out with 2 A's, and tbh, as long as you are prepared to do the work, there no reason why it should not be easy. I needed to do 3 pieces of coursework, with one being based under a 20-hour exam under exam condtions.

    at my old school, most people doing the Foundataion tier got Ds and Es. Most people doing the Hier tier failed.this is because some of the teachers at my old school just quit and there was no one there to teach IT and other subjects. I did higher tier (OCR) and failed. i also did not hand in any of the coursework . i think there was at least two people that got Cs.

    Its very easy, i almost got 100% overall, one stupid part of an exam question that we hadn't been taught got me though.
    Did 2 cwk pieces, can't remember what exam board though. Why do they have to do it through lunch btw? thats ridiculous... most schools are making it essential now :|?

    It's really easy, as long as you can deal with the vast amounts of coursework. This was made worse at my school due to crap teaching and only getting a teacher who knew what she was doing about 2 months before the deadline, so basically everything had to be redone in those 2 months.
