    I am man, SO scared for it as i have to sit the AS one too !
    I'm trying to do both exams this year, my coursework for A2 Is around an A / B, do you think that it's possible to secure a C overall
    I'm sure it's possible what did you get for your AS c/w..?

    I know what you mean, I think it's hard to revise BECAUSE its boring lol. I can't seem to find Jan 2013 either, I'll post the link if I find it


    Does anyone know if the spec for G063 has changed much since 2012..? I'm re-sitting this as an external candidate and don't think OCR haven't posted the spec for this year on their website :confused:

    See i've opted to do both exams and the A2 coursework this year, so i haven't done the coursework at AS Level. I just really need a C man
    Ah ok. I still think its possible...if you manage to get an A in your A2 c/w, you'll need solid B's in your exams to secure a C (I think). An A is 64/80 for the c/w, so you'll need 176 more marks in total to get a C..so split that into two exams and that makes it 88/120 in each exam. I use this btw: http://umstools.sourceforge.net/demo...tor&target=gce

    I hope I've worked that out right lol

    No problem I use my own notes based on the book from OCR, and also the Teach Ict website is pretty useful.

    ...btw maybe you should double check those grades I worked out in case I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure that's right, and I bet you'll get your C tho

    Yeah I sat it last year and got a B in it, hoping to bump it up to an A..

    Tbh I think the website is better at explaining things but the book is endorsed by OCR and the website isn't, so I'm not sure whether the website is 100% reliable. If I get stuck on anything in the book I go to the website.

    Nottingham Trent - how about you?
    The AS exam wasn't too bad tbh, just a lot of memorising like A2 (but easier lol).

    I'll keep looking for the Jan 13 paper btw.
