    I needed help with my ICT coursework and i was wondering if anyone else was also doing ICT edexcel. The coursework we are doing at the moment is the 'community spirit' one. If there are any tips or anything that would help i would be very thankful.
    Thank you!

    There's 4 activities, we have to do different stuff on it.

    So for the first one we have to make a logo, quiz and stuff and we make databases, spreadsheets, evaluation, sources etc.


    Boring stuff that requires a lot of time.

    I hate pretty much all of it. It's a waste of time but it was the only 'decent' GCSE out of the other option block so I took it. I hate having to evaluate everything so critically. I just wish there were more exams than coursework. Designing takes time as well, considering my teachers don't know crap, I have to learn everything myself.

    Same here it was the inly decent thing in that option block. Yeah i'd rather do more of exam and like 1 coursework because the theory is easy.
    ICT should not be writing things on a computer it would be soooo much better if we got to open up electronics and just look at the bits inside.
